GeoChronos - CANARIE NEP Showcase 2010 Presentation

  1. 1. An On-line Collaborative Platform for Earth Observation Scientists
  2. 2.  An on-line platform  For:  Earth Observation Scientists  Facilitating:  Collaboration between scientists  Data access, management and sharing  Application access, management and sharing  Leveraging:  Web 2.0 and social networking technologies  Cloud computing technologies  Funded by:  CANARIE - Network Enabled Platform (NEP-1) program  Cybera (http://geochronos.org/) NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 2
  3. 3.  Solutions  Portal rich with social networking features  Tags, bookmarks, profiles, blogs, wikis, friends/contacts, groups  Media/document sharing, publications, presentations  Discussions, message boards, calendars  Status, activity feeds  Technology  Portal built on top of a social networking platform  Initial prototype built in Facebook (http://www.facebook.com)  Secondary prototype built on white label social networking platform Ning (http://www.ning.com)  Current portal built on open source white label social networking platform Elgg (http://www.elgg.org)  Next Steps  Plan to keep using Elgg platform and upgrade as new versions released  Develop new Elgg plugins as needed Collaboration NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 3

  5. 5. Groups NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 5
  6. 6.  Solutions  Spectral Libraries  Store, share and browse spectral data  View spectral plots, metadata, ancillary data and maps  Manage and generate metadata for spectra  Create and share metadata schemas  Spectral Library solution also being used to manage MODIS satellite data  Technology  iRODS (http://www.irods.org/) for data storage/management  Next Steps  Further generalization of spectral library solution  Acquire, store, manage, browse and share other types of data  Flux tower and phenology tower data  Meteorological data  Other data Data NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 6
  7. 7. Spectral Library - Browse NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 7
  8. 8. Spectral Library - Metadata NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 8
  9. 9.  Solutions  Interactive Application Service (IAS)  On-line, on-demand access to scientific applications  Share application sessions and data with other users  Batch Processing Service (BPS)  Background batch processing of longer running tasks and simulations  Automation of data workflows – mosaic, reproject and subset MODIS data  Technology  IAS and BPS are hosted on top of a cloud computing platform  Use ASPEN (http://grid.ucalgary.ca/projects/DataCentre/) which can dynamically provision virtual machines to host applications based on user demand  Next Steps  Better integration between different data and application services  Application of batch processing/workflow service to other problems Applications/Processing NEP Showcase Oct. 21, 2010 9
