Architectures and Technologies for Agile, User-Oriented Air Quality Data Systems

Current and Near Future AQ Information System of Systems[edit | edit source]

Goals of AQ Information Systems is to Aid:
Provide Sataus and Trand info
Monitoring Progress
Informing and Educate the Public
Formulating Policy and

Specific Objectives of IT Technoloies is to Facilitate the 5 Cs:
Cooperation - Sharing Resources, Tools. Collection of Resources - Foraml Catalogs (GCMD, ESG), Web Search (Google, del.icio.us, Flickr), User submissions
Coordination - Community webplaces; Goals White paper (wiki); Status indicators; ToDo lists; Calendars
Communication - Discussion forum - Reports, Blogs, Discussion pages,
Competition - Market place (??)
Coopetition - Where to cooperate, where to compete

..Current Situation[edit | edit source]

Observational an model data are emegrin on the internet; large resitance to usage ; poor integration; Dedicated 'Stove Pipe' Systems -> Stiff and limited decision support

..Near-Term Furure[edit | edit source]

Diverse users, More sensory/model data-GEOSS; Extensive integration and 'mashing'-Web 2.0; Network effect ->Responsive decisin support

..Possible Group Activites to Get There[edit | edit source]

ESIP AQ workgroups, wiki workspace for resource collection, sharing and discussion
White paper prepared by an ad hoc virtual workgroup (using open collaborative technolologies
Recruting and presentation venues: GEOSS User Workshop, Jul 2006, Denver; Fall AGU, Dec 2006, San Francisco; HTAP Workshop (?)
Interop Experiments (GALEON, GSN, NASA)
Rapid Prototyping Plaforms; Google (rapid, continuous upgrades, sloppy) or Microsoft (slow, perfection) philosophy?
Focused app areas: Real-time AQ Monitoring Consoles; Informing the Public; Regulatory Event Analysis

..White Paper[edit | edit source]

Purpose: Community assessment of AQ IT; User feedback to GEOSS Architecture; Aid to agency planners
Group Approach: White paper - we all participate; we all use it in for our respective environment, we all benefit

AQ Data System Architectures[edit | edit source]

..User-Driven: User Drives Design; Info Value (to the User) is the Measure[edit | edit source]

..Distributed: Structure Extends over Many Dimensions[edit | edit source]

..Loosely Couppled: Software Components, System of Systems, Architcture of Participation[edit | edit source]

Information Technologies[edit | edit source]

..Software Components: Data as Service, Web Services[edit | edit source]

..Interoperability Technologies: Standards/Conventions, Wrappers and Adopters, Workflow Engines[edit | edit source]

..Web 2.0 Technologies: Searching, Tagging, RSS, AJAX, O'Riley for AQ...[edit | edit source]

Challenges[edit | edit source]

..Human Factors[edit | edit source]

The 5 C's: Communication, Coordination, Cooperation, Competion, Coopetition
Attracting user participation

..Architecture[edit | edit source]

Maximize the 'Network Effect'....

..Technologies[edit | edit source]
