ACEAS portal presentation ACEAS portal presentation Presentation Transcript

  • Australian Centre for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (ACEAS) Presentation by Alison Specht, Program Manager, and Richard Thackway, ACEAS Sabbatical Fellow.
    • To allow the results of novel analysis and synthesis activities to be made accessible to the public;
    • To provide a platform for interactive data-compilation and validation.
    Goal of portal
    • Acquisition through the activities of TERN-funded research groups
    • Temporary storage on secure wikis and ACEAS server
    • Permanent storage on TERN server
    • Sharing as per TERN protocol through ACEAS web site
    Acquisition, storage, and sharing of data
    • According to TERN protocol
    • Modification of data through ACEAS activities creates new data, not encumbered
    • Will this work???
    Data licensing
    • 2010: ACEAS web site and wiki facility established
    • Data acquisition and handling:
      • 2010: one working group and one sabbatical fellow
      • 2010: 3 TERN-servicing Workshops
      • 2011 round 1: 5 new working groups, 1 workshop
    • Expectation
      • 10 working groups per year, 2-3 concurrent sabbatical fellows
    • Data delivery
      • First delivery starting with sabbatical fellow.
    The stage of development
    • Through the web site and secure wikis
    • An example of data sourcing and interactive opportunity…
    How are data uploaded and served?
