Integration and Management of Diverse Environmental Data Sets Integration and Management of Diverse Environmental Data Sets Presentation Transcript

  • Integration and Management of Diverse Environmental Data Sets Cameron Kiddle Research Fellow Grid Research Centre University of Calgary
  • Outline
    • Data Challenges
    • GeoChronos (Spectral Libraries)
    • Spectral Library Demonstration
    • Cloud Services for Water Management
    • Cloud Services for Water Management Demonstration
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • Data Challenges - Acquisition
    • Many different data sources
    • Different regulations/mechanisms for accessing data
    • Lack of automation
    • Finding the right data
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • Data Challenges - Management
    • Scattered and unorganized data
    • Inadequate tools for recording/maintaining metadata
      • Data without metadata is meaningless
      • Lack of suitable metadata standards
      • Validation of metadata
    • Tracking provenance of data
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • Data Challenges – Pre-processing
    • Raw data typically cannot be directly analyzed
    • Significant amount of time spent preparing data for analysis
    • Lack of automation
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • GeoChronos
    • Partners
      • CANARIE (NEP-1)
      • Center for Earth Observation Sciences, University of Alberta
      • Cybera
      • Grid Research Centre, University of Calgary
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • GeoChronos
    • An on-line platform (http://geochronos.org/)
      • For:
        • Earth Observation Scientists
      • Facilitating:
        • Collaboration between scientists
        • Application access, management and sharing
        • Data access, management and sharing
      • Leveraging:
        • Web 2.0 and social networking technologies
        • Cloud computing technologies
        • Semantic Web technologies
    Summit 09 Oct. 14, 2009
  • GeoChronos
    • Data 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
    • Technology
      • iRODS ( http://www.irods.org/ ) for data storage/management
      • Semantic Web technologies such as RDF (Resource Description Framework) to link/relate data
    • Next Steps
      • Generalization of spectral library solution - acquire, store, manage, browse and share other types of data (i.e., satellite, flux, phenology, meteorological, etc.)
      • Automate data workflows (i.e., mosaic, reproject and subset MODIS data) using cloud-based services
