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
    • CIERA
      • 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
    • GEO AQ CoP
      • 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
