ANDS program of support for spatial data 2017 2018-Narsimha Garlapati

  1. 1. ANDS Program of support for Spatial Data GeoNetwork CoP - Canberra Narsimha Garlapati 3/4/17
  2. 2. The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) makes Australia’s research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation.
  3. 3. Trusted partnerships ● ANDS is working with partners and communities on research data projects and collaborations. ● ANDS works collaboratively with data providers and publicly funded research institutions within Australia ● ANDS works with partners to support good management, sharing, discovery and reuse of research data. Research Intensive Public sector 1. Research institutions 2. NCRIS partners 3. High Performance Computing 1. State and Federal agencies 2. Cultural
  4. 4. Communities ANDS facilitated communities provide a platform for ongoing support, information exchange, best practice and problem solving related research data. For example… Geoscience Data Community ● ANDS supports the geoscience academia and public sector community to make their data discoverable. ● ANDS can assist with the implementation of standards, IGSN,identifiers, citation minting plus provide awareness of discipline tools.
  5. 5. ANDS, RDS and Nectar Working together….and more closely ● Make Australia’s research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation ● Providing an online infrastructure to connect, collaborate & contribute ● Enabling researchers to easily store, discover, access and share their data Developing partnership with data (spatial) rich agencies like BoM, DoE,Geoscience Australia, NCRIS partners ( IMOS, ALA, TERN, NCI, Virtual Labs etc) ● To promote the user standards (data/discovery) , e.g... ▪ GeoNetwork, ISO19115, ANZLIC, MCP and other metadata profiles ▪ Data management,DOIs
  6. 6. To get involved: Together, ANDS and our partners across Australia are building strong and vibrant research data communities. • Join our workshops and webinars held throughout the year: • Join the ANDS General Google group by emailing: • Subscribe to our e-newsletter andsUP: • Follow @andsdata on Twitter
  7. 7. Reliable services ANDS delivers national services to support data discovery,connection, publishing, sharing, use and reuse. Currently we manage four primary online services: ● Research Data Australia (research data discovery portal) ● DOI minting service (Cite My Data) ● Handle minting service (Identify My Data) ● Research Vocabularies Australia (controlled vocabularies) and much more to come….
  8. 8. Reliable services ANDS and data discovery ● ANDS has established Research Data Australia (RDA), an internet-based discovery service ● RDA draws data descriptions from more than 90 institutions to aggregate and showcase Australian data nationally and internationally ● ANDS can also provide advice on metadata, data citation and long-term data identifiers. ● Working group for services
  9. 9. Enhanced capability ANDS is building the data skills and capacity of Australia's research system by ● Providing resources and training such as webinars, workshops and guides ▪ Monthly Tech Talks ▪ Developing guides ▪ Organising and supporting events ▪ Connecting the research, spatial data and technology ▪ Geospatial workshop on “Drones, Geo-ethics and Big data-Challenges and Opportunities” ▪ This workshop is scheduled in June 2017….Please stay tuned for more updates….
