  • These are summarized from volume 1, especially the section 1
  • EarthCube EA design principles:
    Interoperability
    Data-driven
    Integrating existing resources rather than developing new ones
    Community-based, i.e. human-centric
    Must utilize standards and cutting-edge technologies, such as catalog services, ontology and cloud computing.
  • This should be overall structure of the design report
  • This page is sort of repeating the content in page 8, I just put it here for now.

    2. 2. 7/25/2014 EarthCube All-Hands, June 24-26, 2014, Washington D.C. EarthCube Overview  Geoscience future focus (GEO 2009): Fostering a sustainable future through a better understanding of our complex and changing planet.  CIF21 (2012): providing a comprehensive, integrated, sustainable, and secure cyberinfrastructure (CI) to accelerate research and education and new functional capabilities in computational and data-intensive science and engineering, thereby transforming our ability to effectively address and solve the many complex problems facing science and society.  EarthCube Vision (Governance 2014): “… enable transformative geoscience by fostering a community committed to providing unprecedented discovery, access, and analysis of geoscience data…”
    3. 3. 7/25/2014 EarthCube All-Hands, June 24-26, 2014, Washington D.C. Project Objective  Our Conceptual Design project is to design an EarthCube Enterprise Architecture (EA) to support EarthCube for facilitating data communication and human collaboration in pursuit of collaborative geosciences.  The designed EA is to assist EarthCube (2012) as:  A geoscience research engine  A geoscience resource management platform  A geoscience computing service provider  A geoscience education platform
