GeoCENS Presentation

  1. 1. GeoCENS GEOspatial Cyberinfrastructure for ENvironmental Sensing Dr. Steve Liang Assistant Professor GeoSensor Web Lab University of Calgary http://sensorweb.geomatics.ucalgary.ca
  2. 2. Open Mass Collaboration Web 2.0
  3. 3. How mass collaboration changes everything? Goldcorp Inc., a Canadian gold company, couldn’t find gold… After years of struggling, the company “open sourced” one of its mining site (Red Lake, Ontario). Mass collaboration found more gold that company could in previous years attempts. Results: Gave away proprietary data and got back a $ 9 billion company. (Before that, it was a $ 100 million company.)
  4. 4. Web 1.0 Source: IBM 2007
  5. 5. Web 2.0 - The World is Flat Source: IBM 2007
  6. 6. Wikipedia - 2 million English articles - 15x encyclopedia Britannica - 200+ languages - 1 million+ editors - 70,000 regular contributors - 8th most visited site on the Web
  7. 7. Open Source Geospatial Data: OpenStreetMap OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.

  16. 16. The Macroscope Vision • The unprecedented amount of sensors will allow us to • observe the world at very high spatial resolution • perform these observations continuously • collect them in digital form • They can be considered as intelligent computers in the field rather than dumb data collectors
  17. 17. Sensor Networks to Sensor Web
  18. 18. Links between different sensor networks are missing ?
  19. 19. What if we can remix different sensor networks for unexpected uses?
  20. 20. Innovation in Assembly Network Effect The value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of links of the system (n!). How many unique links in a network? Examples:

  22. 22. GeoCENS GEOspatial Cyberinfrastructure for ENvironmental Sensing
  23. 23. GeoCENS Mission Statement To Enable scientists • to collaborate on a scale not currently possible and ; • to share and access scientific (sensor) data in a way not currently possible.
  24. 24. Function Goals • Enable scientists, using an intuitive geographical interface, to browse, search for, and access biogeological sensors and data sets • Enable sensor/data providers to publish new sensors/data sets and make them search-able and access-able • Enable users to control sensors when possible • Enable users to receive notifications when sensing tasks have been completed • Enable scientists to build focused, collaborative networks through the use of social networking tools • Enable users to utilize the CANARIE network to access, transfer and share various data sets and collaborate more effectively with colleagues around the world
  25. 25. Architectural Goals • Interoperable • Scalable • Extensible • Rich User Experience • Performance • Sustainable
