Transcript

  • 1. NOAA Observing Systems Architecture (NOSA) Program Review Team Recommendation #32 & #40 Rob Mairs, Jim Barkley and the NOSA Team October 21, 2003
  • 2. Initial Scope of Task Team
    • Begin with systemic review of all NOAA observing systems
      • Work closely with NOAA team developing the requirements-based management process
      • Timeline for future observing system architecture development TBD
    • Address only NOAA owned and/or operated systems, but ensure expansion to international systems
    • Include operational and research systems
  • 3. Methodology used for NOSA Baseline or ‘as is’ Architecture
    • 1. Determine purpose of architecture effort
    • 2. Diagram all relevant components of architecture
    • 3. Determine what you need to know about each component
    • 4. Build data collection methodology
    • 5. Gather data
    • 6. Publish and use
    • 7. Establish method for maintaining
  • 4. Enterprise Architecture: Very short and short definitions:
    • The explicit description and documentation of the current and desired relationships among business and management processes and supporting infrastructure.
    • or
    • 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.

  • 8. Metis Architecture Modeling Tool Objects & Relationships
  • 9. NOSA In the Big Picture
  • 10. NOSA Target or ‘to be’ Architecture Method
    • 1. Assess observing systems effectiveness in meeting NOAA strategic goals
    • 2. Prioritize observations or capabilities and validate requirements
    • 3. Analyze alternatives to reach desired effectiveness
    • 4. Select target that achieves most capability within cost and other constraints
  • 11. NOSA Geospatial Database Maximizing utilization of NOSA data!
  • 12. Internet Map Portal Metadata and Station Data Links
  • 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. AVHRR and DMSP Footprints POES (AVHRR) DMSP
  • 15. NOSA + Significant Events Integrating in-situ observatories with NESDIS Operational Significant Event Image Geotiffs to create a “Map of the Day”
  • 16. NOSA Geospatial Partners? NOS NowCoast: http://nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/csdl/op/nowcoast.htm NWS MIRS: http://gisias.mirs.nws.noaa.gov/mirsweb/index.cfm
