  • Month 15 of 48
    This is a research project and debate within consortium about whether we will produce production strength outputs or not
    Concept of citizen science very relevant here
  • Ask if anyone knows of any history here. Don’t want to reinvent the wheel
  • Most progress to date in 2.
  • Top down, bottom up approach
  • Using an RM-ODP approach
  • Quotes round privacy
  • Mobile related
  • Not just SDI, many kinds of information infrastructure require access control
    Typically, authentication is a pre-requisite. Some use cases where you don’t, eg, public
    Barriers to interoperability include; cost, vendor lock-in, lack of a support community, not standards based, etc
    Return later to those last points
    Can AMF’s meet COBWEB requirements for privacy?
    Do AMF’s meet GEOSS requirements?

    1. COBWEB Project Citizens Observatories Side Event, GEO-X Plenary, Geneva, Switzerland. 15th Jan, 2014 Chris Higgins Project Coordinator chris.higgins@ed.ac.uk http://cobwebproject.eu/
    2. Citizen Observatory Web • 4 year research project • Crowdsourced environmental data to aid decision making • Introduce quality measures and reduce uncertainty • Combine crowdsourced data with existing sources of data
    3. Project Partners
    4. Essential context – WNBR • UNESCO Man and Biosphere Programmes World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR) – Sites of excellence to foster harmonious integration of people and nature for sustainable development through participation, knowledge sharing, poverty reduction and human well-being improvements, cultural values and society's ability to cope with change, thus contributing to the Millennium Development Goals • 610 reserves in 117 countries
    5. COBWEB Biosphere Reserves UK (Wales): Biosffer Dyfi – Development work concentrated here • Germany: Wadden See and Hallig Islands • Greece: Mount Olympus & Gorge of Samaria • Left open possibility of expansion to further BRs later in project
    6. What are we going to build? A number of demonstrator mobile phone applications – Exactly what, deliberately left open and subject to discussion with stakeholders 3 pilot case study areas: 1. Validating earth observation products 2. Biological monitoring 3. Flooding
    7. Requirements driving architecture
    8. Emerging Architecture
    9. Making data available through GEOSS • Data will be available via OGC Web Services, eg, WFS, WMS, SOS • Discoverable via CSW • Will continue working within the context of the Architecture Implementation Pilots (AIP) – AIP-6: COBWEB contribution concentrated on authentication and Single Sign On – Some possibilities for future AIP collaboration: • • Address additional access control questions identified by GEO community Perhaps work within context of specific SBA’s
    10. Technology that can be used by other observatories • “Data collected should be made available through the GEOSS without any restrictions” • But, we must address “questions of privacy…” • In AIP-6 we piloted the use of access management federations
    11. WP5: Privacy assurance, access management • COBWEB about environmental, not personal data • Some kinds of protected data that may be encountered during the project: – Personal information, eg, name, email address – Location protected species – Reference data from European National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies – Conflated data
    12. Why put effort into federated access management? • Frequently, SDI content and service providers need to know who is accessing their valuable resource • The ability for a group of organisations with common objectives, ie, a federation, to securely exchange high value information is a powerful SDI enabler • Identified as a priority in GEOSS – Architecture Implementation Pilot 5 – GEO Infrastructure Implementation Board
    13. COBWEB/GEOSS AIP-6 Federation Service Provider (SP) Discovery Service (DS) Catapult Catapult Identity Provider (IdP) Trust Gateway (TG) to OpenID CUAHSI* CUAHSI* NASA Ames NASA Ames Secure Dimensions Secure Dimensions “GEOSS user” SingleSign-On MEEO MEEO EarthServer (FP7) project EarthServer (FP7) project Google Google OpenId OpenId Kst. GDI.DE Kst. GDI.DE University of Edinburgh University of Edinburgh *: Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science
    14. Where we are in the project… • Month 15 of 48 • November 2013: Milestone 2: – End of design and initial stakeholder engagement phase. Start implementing platform • November 2014: Milestone 3: – First Welsh demonstrator completed and ready for testing in the field chris.higgins@ed.ac.uk
    15. Dimensions of Interoperability From the European Interoperability Framework for Pan-European eGovernment Services (http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/servlets/Docb0db.pdf?id=31597)
