ITEM 1. Progress - GloSIS Implementation, GloSIS Vision - Yusuf Yigini

  1. 1. ITEM 1. GloSIS Vision
  2. 2. GloSIS - Federation ➔Federation of soil information systems (SIS), in which different nodes are able to communicate using common language/standards. ➔This federated approach will empower countries to develop their national soil information systems as reference centres for national soil information.
  3. 3. GloSIS Design • Document provides a proposal for the design of GloSIS. It presents a number of implementing units and enumerates some of the technologies on which it may depend. The broad aim is to have an implementation that is lightweight, cheap to deploy and using learned lessons, while at the same time relieving data providers and soil scientists from IT-technical details. Design of the GloSIS Infrastructure
  4. 4. GloSIS Building Blocks GloSIS will be built with architectural and engineering building blocks. • The architectural are mostly abstract, setting out structures and formalising knowledge. • The engineering building blocks concern primarily the technologies that realise the structures set out in the architecture.
  5. 5. GloSIS Building Blocks • Domain Model - Abstract component that defines how data are organised. • Data Exchange - A realisation of the GloSIS domain model allowing different parties to send/receive soil data through a well-recognised medium. • GloSIS Node - A node connected to the internet able to publish soil data according to the GloSIS data exchange. • Support Node – SIS Node hosted and maintained by the GSP. Intended to harbour data from data providers that are not able to set up their own node. • Discovery hub - A web-based gateway to the GloSIS nodes, able to access the federation and offering data browsing and discovery functionalities. It brings all nodes together into a single point of access.
  6. 6. GloSIS – Participation Levels The GSP will support and encourage the participation of countries and other data providers in GloSIS through a ‘CountrySIS’ framework. CountrySIS Guidelines will define the technical specifications for such systems, as well as an implementation manual (cookbook), will be developed for this purpose.
  7. 7. GloSIS – Participation Levels The federative architecture will allow for data providers to choose between three different levels of participation to GloSIS: 1. Ad hoc implementation - a SIS, that based on diverse technologies, is able to publish data complying with the GloSIS data exchange. This is likely to be the case for the institutions that already have a SIS in place and wish to join GloSIS.
  8. 8. GloSIS – Participation Levels The federative architecture will allows for data providers to choose between three different levels of adhesion to GloSIS: 1. Ad hoc implementation - a SIS, that while based on diverse technologies, is able to publish data complying with the GloSIS data exchange. This is likely to be the case with institutions that already have a SIS in place and wish to join GloSIS. Figure: SDF – ISRIC 2018
  9. 9. GloSIS – Participation Levels 2. Reference implementation - data providers build their soil information system based on the reference implementation of a GloSIS node, which is an off-the-shelf, deployable bundle of technologies that perform the functions of a node, plus data management.

Reference implementation - data providers build their soil information system based on the reference implementation of a GloSIS node, which is an off-the- shelf, deployable bundle of technologies that perform the functions of a node, plus data management.

  11. 11. GloSIS – Participation Levels 3. Support implementation - for data providers lacking the resources or knowledge to set up and maintain a reference node. In this case their data are stored and published by the support node, thus automatically complying with the GloSIS domain model and the data exchange.

  13. 13. GSP Data policy The data flow will be governed by the endorsed GSP data policy. The GSP Data Policy has been developed by the Global Soil Partnership Secretariat in order to promote soil data sharing for data products The data policy is applicable to all members of the GSP and FAO and all user groups including end users, developers and contributors that share soil data through the Global Soil Information System and SoilSTAT.
  14. 14. • Review and finalize technical documents (Q4 2018). • Author CountrySIS Guidelines (Oct 2018 – Mar 2019). • Develop GloSIS node reference implementation (Jan – Apr 2019). • Develop beta-version of the Data Discovery Hub (Jan – Jun 2019). • GloSIS implementation pilot phase with selected countries (Jul - Dec 2019). • Develop CountrySIS Cookbook (Jul – Dec 2019). Work plan Q4 2018 – 2019 (draft)
  15. 15. • Strengthen national capacities on soil information • Improved visibility of a national SIS; enhance usability of (national) soil data. • Contribute to more consistent and accurate global soil data products to be used in SDG-related global assessments (informing national policy development). • Make national data compatible and exchangeable with other data sources: • to support (inter)national scientific research; • to address trans-boundary issues. • Supports private sector in countries to assess international soil resources, for instance for developing sustainable food chains. Strengths & Benefits
  16. 16. Challenge • Ambitious task to develop and implement GloSIS through a federated approach in 3 years time (2018-2020). • Fresh data • Lack of funding; cost estimate P4 implementation 8-9M USD. • Voluntary contributions; • Engagement of countries, data holders, individuals; • Data sharing: restricted data access.
