Emissions Mashups

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

The availability of high spatial and temporal resolution emissions data from satellites, models, and surface observations allow us to explore the relationship among the different data sources. Mashups are applications constructed by combining services from disparate sources and is an approach to building tools that take advantage of emissions data web access through open, standard interfaces. Mashups are examples of the type of rapid prototyping applications sought for GEOSS in providing a flexible framework to view and analyze information in multiple ways. In creating emissions analysis mashups, we combined web standards and services for comparing point and grid data types. Javascript is the "glue" used to connect the components, making the mashup easily transferred, modified, and extended by others.
