Supporting the Marine Strategy Framework Directive - Diplohack Brussels

  1. 1. Diplohack Brussels Supporting the Marine Strategy Framework Directive : JRC EMIS/GMIS datasets Pascal Derycke Laurent Dubroca Lorenzino Vaccari
  2. 2. 1st challenge • The challenge is to put together various marine information available as INSPIRE* compliant web services build a web dynamic 3D view (bathymetry, chlorophyll/chl-a, and seabed habitats) • If the team succeeds in developing the 3D GIS web viewer. The application could be implemented on the Marine Analyst server and could be available on the Marine Competence Centre to support the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive * Chlorophyll Seabed Bathymetry
  3. 3. Use cases The user clicks on the map to select one location (latitude/longitude point) on the sea. The web app developed by the diplohack team will display a dynamic 3D view around that location (500km) • On top of the cube, the Chlorophyll (chl-a) is displayed as a 2D raster image with its appropriate colour-bar • Within/through the cube, the user sees a 3d image of the bathymetry (elevation) and can rotate the cube (360°) with help of the mouse • Optional: underneath the cube, the user will find the Seabed habitat information for around the selected location
  4. 4. Available web services Data services for the challenge: • JRC EMIS - EMIS - MERIS Monthly mean sea surface Chlorophyll-a concentration (2km) (available as INSPIRE - OGC WMS and WMS-T). Available at: 77b6961ae6ed • EMODNET Bathymetry (available as INSPIRE - OGC WCS) . Available at: n=1.0.0&request=getcoverage&coverage • EUNIS Seabed habitat (available as INSPIRE - OGC WFS). Available at: 1.0&request=GetCapabilities
  5. 5. Datasets and tools Source datasets are also available: • JRC EMIS – MERIS: downloadable source netcdf files are also available • EUNIS Seabed: downloadable ESRI shape files are also available Proposed technologies to be used: • R (EMIS-R package): • R code to extract the bathymetry. See EMIS “news” section at • Apache HTTP server • PHP or Python • HTML5
  6. 6. 2nd challenge • The challenge is to visualize a temporal animation of the ocean productivity (chl-a) in order to highlight the bloom period etc. Both European (EMIS) or worldwide (GMIS) datasets can be used • We would love to have something like this with the EMIS/GMIS data:
  7. 7. Available datasets and code Datasets for the challenge: • JRC EMIS - MERIS Monthly composite Chlorophyll-a at 2km resolution (available as INSPIRE - OGC WMS and WMS-T). Available at: https://open- • JRC GMIS: aa04-f1d3e6cd06c2 The code is available here: •
  8. 8. 3rd challenge (draft) Merging the two previous challenges: • The first view is given by the web app displaying a chl-a image on the globe (2nd challenge) and then the user click somewhere to open the 3D view (1st challenge) To consider the following worldwide datasets: • GMIS instead of EMIS • GEBCO bathymetry instead EMODNET • Global seafloor geomorphic features map:
