Data Integration and Display Tools

  1. Objective: a) share functions and tools exist for water studies and management; b) identify functions needed; c) develop a matrix of functions/tools/future needs; d)assess alignment with GEOSS (catalog, semantic mediation, viualization, interoperabiliy, workflow, etc).
  2. Approach: a) initiate a matrix; b) do a tool demo session with four presenters (HydroSeek or a Measure project, Microsoft,ESRI, Water Portal), 10 minutes each; c) 10 minutes discussion to validate the matrix. Presentations will have focused areas on ontology and semantics.
  3. Schedule:
  • ArcGIS Server Geoportal Extension: Geospatial Discovery through Portal Technology, Christine Eggers, ESRI,

Abstract: The ArcGIS Server Geoportal extension enables an organization to host a highly-customizable, web-accessible geodata catalog for users to connect to map services, create and manage metadata, and find, share, and download geodata. Demonstration will showcase easy-to-use tools for connecting users to geospatial resources, and connecting disparate geodata catalogs to one another.

  • Hydroseek, Richard Hooper (invited), or Measure project tools, Paul Houser (invited)
  • Microsoft (in process)
  • Water Portal Prototype, Hannes Wu, Zhenlong Li, and Min Sun
