NOAA Observing Systems Architecture (NOSA)

  1. 1. NOAA Observing Systems Architecture (NOSA) Program Review Team Recommendation #32 & #40 Rob Mairs, Jim Barkley and the NOSA Team October 21, 2003
  2. 2. Initial Scope of Task Team <ul><li>Begin with systemic review of all NOAA observing systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Work closely with NOAA team developing the requirements-based management process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Timeline for future observing system architecture development TBD </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Address only NOAA owned and/or operated systems, but ensure expansion to international systems </li></ul><ul><li>Include operational and research systems </li></ul>
  3. 3. Methodology used for NOSA Baseline or ‘as is’ Architecture <ul><li>1. Determine purpose of architecture effort </li></ul><ul><li>2. Diagram all relevant components of architecture </li></ul><ul><li>3. Determine what you need to know about each component </li></ul><ul><li>4. Build data collection methodology </li></ul><ul><li>5. Gather data </li></ul><ul><li>6. Publish and use </li></ul><ul><li>7. Establish method for maintaining </li></ul>
  4. 4. Enterprise Architecture: Very short and short definitions: <ul><li>The explicit description and documentation of the current and desired relationships among business and management processes and supporting infrastructure. </li></ul><ul><li>or </li></ul><ul><li>An enterprise architecture is a tool to help individuals think about their organization as a whole. An enterprise architecture captures a wide variety of information , establishes relationships among the various documents and diagrams and stores all of the information together in a single repository , so that managers can then see relationships, ask questions, identify problems, or run simulations to help make decisions about changes they are considering. </li></ul>

  8. 8. Metis Architecture Modeling Tool Objects & Relationships
  9. 9. NOSA In the Big Picture
  10. 10. NOSA Target or ‘to be’ Architecture Method <ul><li>1. Assess observing systems effectiveness in meeting NOAA strategic goals </li></ul><ul><li>2. Prioritize observations or capabilities and validate requirements </li></ul><ul><li>3. Analyze alternatives to reach desired effectiveness </li></ul><ul><li>4. Select target that achieves most capability within cost and other constraints </li></ul>
  11. 11. NOSA Geospatial Database Maximizing utilization of NOSA data!
  12. 12. Internet Map Portal Metadata and Station Data Links
  13. 13. Connecting Satellite and In-situ Observations A C Satellite footprints & in-situ observatories Zoom in and select a footprint Get a list of in-situ observatories that are in the selected satellite footprint. B
  14. 14. AVHRR and DMSP Footprints POES (AVHRR) DMSP
  15. 15. NOSA + Significant Events Integrating in-situ observatories with NESDIS Operational Significant Event Image Geotiffs to create a “Map of the Day”
