Open Geospatial Science - Vision 2030

456 views

Published on

It is nearly a decade since the initial ideas for Open Geospatial Science was started . Open Geospatial Science builds upon the idea of Open science that scientific knowledge of all kinds are able to be develop more rapidly and in a more productive manner if openly shared (as early as is practical in the discovery process). The key ingredients to make Open Geospatial Science possible is Open Principles (open source geospatial software, open data, open standards , open educational resources and open access to research publications) .

  1. 1. Vision 2030 for Open Geospatial Science Dr. Suchith Anand University of Nottingham Open Geospatial Labs are being established worldwide to scale up research and teaching globally as part of the ICA-OSGeo MoU
  2. 2. Think Tank on Urban BigGeoData and OpenCitySmart 8th June 2016 Open Geospatial Labs are being established worldwide to scale up research and teaching globally as part of the ICA-OSGeo MoU

  6. 6. Focussed Think Tank discussions (split into two topic groups ) Group 1 – Open Data needs/requirements for OpenCitySmart and how it can contribute to Open Geospatial Science vision 2030 Group 2 – Open tools and infrastructures needs/requirements for enhancing Citizen Science contributions for OpenCitySmart and how it can contribute to Open Geospatial Science vision 2030
  7. 7. Science is NOT a Black Box
  8. 8. Openness – Increasing quality through peer review Open Source Software Source code remains in the public domain free for all to use, change and (re)distribute Development done in public usually by a community (distributed, informal team of developers)
  9. 9. Open Geospatial Science builds upon the idea of Open science that scientific knowledge of all kinds are able to be develop more rapidly and in a more productive manner if openly shared (as early as is practical in the discovery process). The key ingredients to make Open Geospatial Science possible is Open Principles (open source geospatial software, open data, open standards and open access to research publications) .
  10. 10. There are many dimensions to “Open” • Open source software. • Open data. • Open standards. • Open access to research publications. • Open education resources But fundamentally it is based on Open Principles
  11. 11. An example of the impact of Openness - GODAN Impact is the positive changes to the lives of people
  12. 12. Hunger Poverty Innovation www.godan.info
  13. 13. Hunger • For the first time in human history, the knowledge to end hunger exists on Earth • 800 million people struggle with debilitating hunger and malnutrition • We need to find solutions beyond MORE food. Nutritionally sensitive agriculture is essential for global public health and wellbeing • We are convinced that the solution to closing this unacceptable hunger gap lies within harnessing and opening agriculture and nutrition data • “location” relevant data plays an important role
  14. 14. Making Geospatial education and opportunities accessible to all “Geo for All”
  15. 15. June 2010 “Geo for All” started from very humble beginnings Aim – Build research and teaching infrastructure worldwide Problem – No initial funding! Biggest Strength – amazing support from colleagues and students Open Source Geospatial Lab founding meeting at UoN
  16. 16. Open software Open data and Open standard Providing to an open geospatial ecosystem for education, research and business
  17. 17. Open Geospatial Education & Research Geospatial Standards (for ex. OGC spec.) Maturity of open source software (for ex. OSGeo stack) Open Data Ability for showing the operation of general laws is fundamental for scientific research
  18. 18. Aim – Establish a new discipline for Open Geospatial Science
  19. 19. GLOBAL URBAN PROBLEMS:GLOBAL URBAN PROBLEMS: access to water, sanitation, trafficaccess to water, sanitation, traffic congestions, economic sustainability,congestions, economic sustainability, citizenscitizens’ health, impact on’ health, impact on environment …environment … Mapping is a critical component to help understand and develop solutions for urban growth problems Proprietary software tools are very expensive (hence unavailable) for economically poor countries and communities worldwide Why is Geoeducation important? Kibera , Kenya Dharavi, Mumbai http://www.flickr.com/photos/56685562@N00/2340042701 http://www.flickr.com/photos/8485582@N07/7365580810 GIS tools play a key role in helping find solutions to global societal challenges
  20. 20. Why - Social Responsibility Making resources including software and data openly available offers an opportunity for knowledge to be shared widely so as to increase learning opportunities. Example – Collaborating with educational initiatives like gvSIG Batoví For details contact: Sergio Acosta y Lara sacosta@dntopografia.gub.uy Alvaro Anguix aanguix@gvsig.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orwN9K07XPo

  35. 35. http://bookshop.europa.eu/en/open-innovation-open-science-open-to-the-world- pbKI0416263 How do we reach here?
  36. 36. Vision 2030 Science should always be open Geospatial Science should be fully build on Open Principles Transparency of research is fundamental (no black boxes or proprietary barriers). Geospatial Science = Open Geospatial Science Open Geospatial Labs are being established worldwide to scale up research and teaching globally as part of the ICA-OSGeo MoU
  37. 37. How do we reach here? We need your help Contribute your ideas to https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Open_geospatial_science_-_vision_2030
  38. 38. Why Open Geo Science?  helps in empowerment of staff and students  capacity building  developing creative and open minds in students which is critical for building open innovation  contributes to building up Open Knowledge for the benefit of the whole society and for our future generations.
  39. 39. Represents the individual content creator on the World Wide Web Why- Open Geospatial Science Key advantages •High quality and impact for research •Scalable •Interoperability •Low costs •Benefits wider community
