Rhusar:Hello from the discussion moderator

This is the discussion or 'Talk' page is on the topic of the main page: Statistics on Interoperability...Request for participation will be sent by email to the senior authors of 'Interoperability Papers' at the Fall 2006 AGU meeting and other interested parties. Preparing the initial draft of the Interoperability Statistics page was an illuminating exercise. I would hope that this wiki-based forum may help us complementing and harmonizing our respective views on Interoperability. The result could be a useful communal assessment of the state of Interoperability... Rhusar 00:54, 9 November 2006 (EST)

>>ERobinson:Hello Response

As the 'wikimaster', I will co-moderate these wiki pages. ERobinson 00:58, 9 November 2006 (EST)

Rhusar: On Interoperability

In 2006, interoperability mainly refers to the application of OGC Standard Protocols. Rhusar 12:28, 18 November 2006 (EST)

>>Nativi:Re:On Interoperability

In my opinion, interoperability is mainly pursued as "services interoperability", using the Web as distributed computing platform; thus, OGC Web Services (OWS) are very popular. On the other hand, SOA requires to harmonize payload data models, as well as protocols; a simple way to pursue data model harmonization in a Web environment is to implement semi-sructured models encoding them in a self-contained and self-explanatory way. This is a motivation for the definite increment of Markup Languages to describe geosciences datasets. Nativi 12:22, 14 November 2006 (EST)

Rhusar: OGC Data Access Standards Dominate

The OGC data access services, WMS and WCS are by far the most dominant.Rhusar 12:30, 18 November 2006 (EST)

Rhusar: WMS/WCS/WFS as primary Earth Science data access standards

It is meaningful to pursue the propagation of the WMS/WCS(WFS?) standards as the primary protocols for Earth Science data access. Rhusar 12:37, 18 November 2006 (EST)

Rhusar: What made Google Earth an instant hit?

What made Google Earth an instant hit? The cool appearance and user experience? Its openness and ease of mashing? Whatever is the cause, it clearly indicates that at times AGU scientists are willing and able to 'infuse' new technologies into their work in a blinck. The mashing of the simple, standard space-time-based data access queries (WMS/WCS) with the rendering/ovelay services of Google Earth combined seems to have a good start and a bright future.Rhusar 12:37, 18 November 2006 (EST)
