Air Quality Work Group

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners

The ESIP Air Quality Cluster has a number of projects, both active and past, on this wiki. Your participation is welcome!

Projects are focused on ESIP and GEOSS goals: creating an interoperable system of systems for Earth Observation Data. The wiki pages here are efforts to learn about and document the existing building blocks of this system and the emerging architecture to make them into a system of systems.

Building Blocks

Building blocks of the system of systems include:

  • Earth Observations (EO) datasets
  • Tools for working with EO data which add value in one or more ways, such as:
    • manipulation of the data (subset, regrid, etc.)
    • visualization of the data
    • exporting the data
