Summer 2007 Session: Use Case SWAT

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners

During the ESIP Winter meeting in Portland, the NASA Technology Infusion Working Group met to discuss the desirability of working with ESIP to develop a wide variety of use cases based on Earth Science Solution needs. These needs would drive technological approaches and specific technology solutions. Since that meeting, a use case template has been developed and the role of use case with the Federation and the Earth Information Exchange has been updated.

[Use Case template]

The aim of this working session is to develop use cases in the agreed upon format. In the process, participants are encouraged to contribute their 'SWAT' for use case development.

~ 3 hours - this is a working session. We'll start as a group and then (if numbers/interest warrants) break into smaller groups.

Work on YOUR use case!! Work on someone elses to learn by example:

Who should attend?

  • Users, with application needs
  • Data providers
  • Service providers
  • Technology providers

We'll use tools, enter the use case into the wiki, draw diagrams, etc.
