  1. 1. DIAL Update Doug Ilg Raytheon ITSS Doug.Ilg@gsfc.nasa.gov HDF-EOS Workshop III September 14, 1999
  2. 2. Background • NRC report recommended broader distribution of EOSDIS functionality • Small scale data producers wanted easy-touse, yet powerful data distribution method • Many data producers have very tiny budgets
  3. 3. Basic Design Goals • A turn-key data distribution system that: – Promotes EOSDIS standards – Administrator • Low (no) cost • No licensing difficulties • Easy maintenance – User • • • • Easy to use Catalog search Dynamic browsing Easy data retrieval
  4. 4. Building Blocks • Public domain, off-the-shelf (PDOTS) components – Apache WWW server – NCSA Scientific Data Browser • Custom CGI – – – – Search engine with HTML and Java interfaces Basic visualization for browse purposes Home grown “database” JDBC interface • Free Web browsers
  5. 5. “Classic” Features • Hybrid interface including HTML, Java, JavaScript • Simple, configurable metadata search – Spatial/temporal/other • Basic visualization of HDF and HDF-EOS files – HTML for structural information – GIF for browse imagery • Immediate data download – HDF/ASCII/binary • Inventory support – Custom “flat file” – JDBC
  6. 6. “New” Features • • • • • Animation Coastline and political boundary overlays Color compositing for multi-band images Cross-granule subsetting and subsampling Support for Version 0 protocol
  7. 7. V0 Interoperability Results • Very successful demonstration at GOIN99 • Used as basis for ESIP Federation “cluster” • Accepted as component of “System Wide Interface Layer” for Federation • Remaining problems: – V0 is only supported on Sun and SGI – Seen as old technology – CIP is still in flux
