GEOSS Architechture Implementation Pilot

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is conducting a second phase of the Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP-2) to integrate services into the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS). The first phase of AIP contributed to the initial operating capability of GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI) established in early 2008. AIP-2 will augment the GCI with services contributed by GEO Members and Participating Organizations. The activities of AIP-2 are conducted in working groups. Five working groups are developing the transverse technology that supports the multiple user communities. Four Community working groups are applying the transverse technologies to support the following communties of practice: Energy, Biodiversity and Climate Change, Disasters and Air Quality. The Air Quality Working Group is led by the ESIP AQ Cluster. This session will describe overall AIP-2 process and then focus on the Air Quality working group developments.
