    • 1. BlogMyDataA Virtual Research Environment for collaborative visualization of environmental data<br />Andrew Milsted, Jeremy Frey<br />Department of Chemistry, University of Southampton<br />Jon Blower, Adit Santokhee<br />Reading e-Science Centre, University of Reading<br />
    • 2. How do scientists collaborateday-to-day?<br />Scholarly literature<br />Face-to-face meetings<br />Informal email discussions<br />Artefacts very basic:<br />PDFs<br />Static images<br />“Lowest common denominator” approach<br />Context is lost<br />Preservation is ad-hoc<br />
    • 3. http://www. .org<br />+ =<br />www.rdg.ac.uk/godiva2<br />blogs.chem.soton.ac.uk<br />Combines web-based visualization…<br />With a blog engine…<br />To create a VRE for collaborative interpretation of data<br />@Keith: What do you think is going on here?<br />@Tom: Looks like a bug in the model. <br />@Harry: Could be a bad observation. I’ll overlay the obs database.<br />
    • 4. 4<br />Godiva2<br />Interactively explore 4D geospatial raster datasets on the web<br />~40 datasets<br />Research data, operational forecasts, satellite products<br />Images generated dynamically for maximum flexibility<br />Hides technical complexity of the data from the users<br />http://www.reading.ac.uk/godiva2<br />http://ncwms.sf.net<br />
    • 5. The blog (LabTrove)<br />Web-based blogging tool specifically designed for the practising scientist<br />Originally designed for lab chemist<br />Collaboration tool for enabling discussions<br />Blogs can be private or public<br />Colleagues add comments and link blog posts together<br />Version-controlled<br />Nothing can be deleted, but can be updated<br />Sophisticated metadata framework<br />We added geo-tagging<br />
    • 6. Godiva2 sites<br />RSS<br />LabTrove<br />Geo<br />database<br />GeoRSS<br />
    • 7. Illustrative use cases<br />Postdoc/PhD student:<br />Discover an interesting feature in a dataset<br />Post a blog entry asking a question<br />Colleague at a different institute<br />Discovers others working on same dataset and/or same geographic area<br />Discovers blog entry, posts explanatory comment<br />PI/Manager:<br />Views “hot topics” feed (most active discussions)<br />
    • 8. Feature summary<br />Create blog entries about different kinds of visualizations<br />Chiefly map plots and animations so far<br />Doesn’t store any data: just metadata and links<br />Can highlight a point of interest<br />“What’s going on at this location?”<br />Lots of metadata automatically captured<br />User dataset, variable, plot type<br />Geospatial and temporal context<br />Posts can be filtered on this metadata<br />Original visualization can be regenerated<br />Proof of concept! (for now)<br />
    • 9.
    • 10. Demo video: see http://blogs.blogmydata.org/projectblog/398/New_demonstration_video.html<br />
    • 11. Metadata captured automatically and used in filtering<br />Click on screenshot to load data in Godiva2<br />
    • 12. User feedback guided development<br />Privacy controls essential<br />We could give even more control in future<br />“Content is king”<br />Prototype system needs to contain interesting data!<br />Animations difficult to handle but big attraction for users<br />
    • 13. 13<br />Future work<br />Prototype was developed quickly: needs “hardening”<br />Increase the number of plot types<br />Vertical profiles, timeseries<br />Improve playback of animations in browsers<br />HTML5???<br />Improve use of filtering<br />E.g. “Who else is working on density anomalies in the North Atlantic?”<br />What are the hot topics of the last week?<br />KML and GeoRSS output for all types of visualization<br />E.g. for Google Earth overlays<br />Finer-grained security?<br />
