  • This is AEKOS’s niche within the broader framework for the environmental information landscape for Australia. ÆKOS is filling a gap for complex ecological data at the plot level.3 broad categories on the left.BOM has the climate and water space well covered6 initiative serve physical environmental data , 4 are TERN facilities3 initiative house biotic data.
  • ALA places biodiversity within a systematics context – species taxonomy and relationships, whereas AEKOS places biodiversity within an ecological context – within the context of the surrounding environment
  • Opportunity for increased synergy but it requiresOpen linked data (defined metadata std...sparql) In our ecological & biodiversity
  • Opportunity for increased synergy but it requiresOpen linked data (defined metadata std...sparql) In our ecological & biodiversity
  • The project aligns with the central aim of the ANDS Applications program i.e. in “bringing together a range of data sources combined with new integration and synthesis tools to enable new research”.
  • Project came about through discussions between Andy and Donald and Andrew Treloar – Andy has science questions to support in particular through TREND Transects for Environmental Monitoring and Decision MakingPlus DISSIRTE keen to see NCRIS/EIF facilities working collaboratively across different areas and topics.ANDS and TERN projects completedRoles defined by the particular areas of data and functionality that existing systems provide
  • The application will help in investigating and understanding the likely redistribution dynamics and resilience of communities and species under predicted climate change.This is achieved through the discovery and exploration of the variations and relationships in the different data sets provided by TREND and the ALABy assessing the impacts of various potential climatic and environmental shifts, TREND will provide an early warning system for changes in South Australia’s diverse environments

  • Soils to Satellites
  • Soils to SatellitesNCRIS Capabilities Well PlacedNCRIS capabilities have access to:• Vast volumes of Data (uniformly and non-uniformly structured)• High levels of Technical Expertise• Advanced Technology & Technical Infrastructure.
  • Soils to SatellitesEnvironmental Information Landscape for Australia
  • ALA and ÆKOS – data comparison AEKOS supports rich, plot-based ecological data and leverages ALAcomplementary expertise in systematics, biodiversity and spatial platforms Biodiversity Data - ALA Ecological Data – ÆKOS • Systematics – classification • Rich plot-based data • Breadth of life domains • Depth of single domain • Rich spatial layers for • Contextual environmental location and environmental observations context and analysis • Semantically federated and • 36m records - Museums integrated complex data and Herbaria, State • Output flexibility (first pass to agencies, NRMs, Citizen greater detail) science • Describes biodiversity ‘look & • Concentrates on species feel’ (ecosystem dynamics) and specimen data and profiles
  • Soils to SatellitesGreater Synergies PossibleGreater synergies between NCRIS capabilitiespossible by:• Increasing cross-capability collaboration and communication• Improving interoperability between NCRIS systems (including integration with non- uniformly structured data e.g. ecological & biodiversity data)• Gaining familiarity of each other’s capabilities.
  • Soils to SatellitesSoils to Satellites addresses these needsIncubator project to:• demonstrate • integration of disparate data independent of structure and standards • collaboration and cooperation between NCRIS capabilities • Value and power of mature ALA web services• contribute to and enrich ANDS Research Data Australia platform• generate ‘real world’ feedback for future iterations.
  • Soils to SatellitesProject Overview•Australian National Data Service (ANDS) Applications Project• July 2012 – June 2013•Project Partners: • TERN Eco-informatics • Atlas of Living Australia (CSIRO)• Collaborators: • TERN MSPN/TREND • TERN AusCover
  • Soils to SatellitesIntegration of disparate dataTREND ecological data (ÆKOS, CSIRO NSA)• Plot-based plant community data• Soil characterisation data - structure, pH ,nutrients, carbon etcAtlas of Living Australia (spatially represented data)• Species occurrence and distribution data• Environmental characteristicsTERN AusCover (biophysical remote sensing data)• multi-spectral characteristics of site.TREND genomics data (BPA, SARDI, BGI, BOLD)• Opaque “blobs” of genomics data including barcodesequences, Soil Metagenomics data , isotope data
  • Soils to SatellitesCollaboration & Co-operation - bringing together technicalexpertise and technological infrastructure for mutualbenefit.
  • Soils to SatellitesBenefits• Enables plot and data to be explored in new ways• Exposes relationships not previously possible.• Supports science questions • Community composition and turn-over along environmental gradients • Genetic differentiation and flow • Understanding environmental drivers • Current and predicted future species distributions • Climate resilient and sensitive communities/refugia. Now 2050
  • Soils to SatellitesSpecific System Capabilities • Discover study locations using a wide range of criteria • Explore data from these locations, including data from multiple site visits • Compare survey, biodiversity and environmental data between study locations and visits • Extract data for offline analysis • Provide assistance to researchers in selecting relevant data depending on the research question
  • Soils to SatellitesA “live” system!
  • This project is supported by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) ANDS is supported by the Australian Government through the National CollaborativeResearch Infrastructure Strategy Program and the Education Investment Fund (EIF) Super Science Initiative
  • Soils to SatellitesA “live” system – Study Location – Environmental Values
  • Soils to SatellitesA “live” system – Compare environment across locations
  • Soils to SatellitesA “live” system – Actual sampling units – Soil Character
