ESIP's Federated Search cluster is developing a framework to support space-time and keyword search for data.  The aim is to include both small and large data  providers, both data and services (eventually), and both dataset and file-level searches.  The approach is to leverage the OpenSearch standard, layering an ESIP-specific convention on top.

2 Semantic Web Workshop

   * Focus: Ontologies and use
   * Workshop lead: Peter Fox /Rahul Ramachandran


3 Collaborative Technologies and Geoportal Extension

   * 3.1 Exposing Data with Web Services
   * Workshop Lead: Christine Eggers ESRI

Abstract:

It is no secret that exposing geospatial datasets as web services makes them easier for users to discover and use. Web services allow users to access and then combine different datasets for their own purposes and in their own map viewers, often in creative ways. Even so, the standards, organizational policies, and technical aspects of how to move datasets to web services can be daunting. This workshop investigates the value of web services, how to expose datasets as standards-based web services, and tools that enable users to discover web-accessible data resources.

Intended Audience: All, particularly organizations that produce or manage geospatial datasets.

   *3.2 Drupal in a Day
   * Workshop lead: Rahul Ramachandran

4. Federated Search

   * ESIP's Federated Search
   * Workshop lead: Chris Lynnes

Abstract:

ESIP's Federated Search cluster is developing a framework to support space-time and keyword search for data. The aim is to include both small and large data providers, both data and services (eventually), and both dataset and file-level searches. The approach is to leverage the OpenSearch standard, layering an ESIP-specific convention on top.

This workshop will include:

  • an introduction and demos of existing Federated Search implementations (yes, they exist!)
  • work on details of the ESIP convention and how to foster client and server development

Intended Audience: Both Federated Search newbies (esp. for the first half) and Federated Search cluster members (second half). Newbies are welcome to watch some of the sausage-making in the second half.

Workshop Category: Presentation Track.

5. Interoperability 101

   * Focus: Survey course for new members to introduce different interoperability standards
   * Workshop lead: Karl Bennedict


6. Climate Modeling

   * Focus: The use of climate models
   * Workshop lead: Rob Raskin to recruit from ORNL
