GEO UIC Showcase
Title: Collaborative Networking of Air Quality Information Systems
Description: Through the GEO Architecture Implementation Pilot, a subset of the air quality community has been collaborating on establishing an air quality community information infrastructure to complement the GEOSS Common Infrastructure. This showcase will present the evolution of the air quality community infrastructure, how multiple air quality projects and systems are networked through it, and examples of its use in supporting GEOSS principles. The proposed showcase will involve evolving collaborations among air quality projects and systems in various collaborative efforts, including the GEO Architecture Implementation Pilot, HTAP Network, CEOS Atmospheric Composition Portal.
Team:ESIP Air Quality Workgroup, Washington University/DataFed, NASA-Goddard/Giovanni, CEOS WGISS Atmospheric Composition Portal Team. Other team members are expected as the 3rd phase of the GEO Architecture Implementation Pilot makes progress between March and November 2010.
Add value of GEO in general: GEO Architecture Implementation Pilot provided a focused collaborative environment through which multiple air quality projects and systems could come together to develop a shared information infrastructure.
Add value of UIC:UIC encouraged and helped realize the formation of a GEO Air Quality Community of Practice.
