=== Notes from Session ===
Meeting Minutes
* Introductions
* Stefan Falke
** CEOS Atmospheric Composition Portal
*** Still in beta
*** Different tools for the display of data and metadata
*** Key activity has become interpreting and implementing standards
*** Need more documentation of lessons learned from the first implementation of the standards
*** Community building from an emissions standpoint
*** Similar goals to ESIP
*** Data scope is divided into species, sources, spatial, and temporal
*** Set-up a Drupal site that provides data access tools, analysis tools, and communication about emissions.
*** Hope to work on emissions ontology
* Rudy Husar
** HTAP Data Network
*** Standardized air quality data shared over a service-oriented, loosely coupled network
*** At least three layers of digital interoperability:
**** The data model itself (netCDF)
**** Semantic constraints on data types (CF Convention)
***** The transmitted file (WCS Standard)
*** Discussed WCS and WFS services
*** Additional services create ISO or KML files for metadata or Google Earth
*** There are pushing and pulling driving forces for data to flow from provider to user
*** Provides a personal level of interoperability
*** As part of the GEO AIP, the community catalog of data has been provided through the GEOSS clearinghouse by data facets
*** A CoP Drupal website has been created
*** GEO can help drive integrating initiatives to get other providers on board
* Stefan (con't)
** AIP-3 Update
*** Focused on OGC sensor observation services and web processing services
* Terry Keating
** CyAir Briefing
*** Not centrally controlled, but with a central plan that multiple groups can take part in implementing
*** Looking for feedback from the air quality community and from the EPA management
*** Also connects users and providers
*** Found that data access is not easy
*** Recommendations
**** Develop a 'cookbook' on how to become more interoperable
**** Hire or designate and air quality community organizer/EPA liaison
**** Generate outreach and education information
**** Create a cyberinfrastructure of core air quality data systems
**** Create CyAir resource website
**** Provide cyberinfrastrucure-building tools and resources for data providers and data users
**** Develop a relatively simple governance structure and leverage other communities
* Yana Gevorgyan
** GEO Evaluation
*** Monitoring and Evaluation Framework - provides guidelines for the decision/evaluation process
*** Established an evaluation team to conduct evaluations which would begin with broad evaluations until the third evaluation, where a regular cycle would be adhered to
*** Found that stakeholders are happy with GEO, glad it's there
*** But, they haven't shown that they've done anything useful to the outside world (mainly users)
**** It doesn't meet their needs for data, information, and tools
**** Found that people think GEO co-opts projects that aren't entirely theirs
