Groundwater Information Network

  1. 1. Groundwater Information NetworkBoyan Brodaric, Dave Sharpe, Eric Boisvert, Charles Logan, Hazen Russell, Heryk Julien, Alex Smirnoff and François Létourneau A contribution to Groundwater Geoscience Program http://sst.rncan.gc.ca/gg-ges/index_e.php
  2. 2. Calls for action GW Data Access §  More online access §  Consolidate access §  Better data quality §  More data (use, monitoring) GW Data Management Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  3. 3. Interoperability stack pragmatic GW Practices (data usage) semantic GW Ontology (data content) schema GWML, WaterML (data structure) Data Domains Open standards syntax GML (data language) system WFS, WMS,… (data systems) Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  4. 4. Groundwater Information Network§  Distributed: YK, BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, NS, USGS§  Seamless: single virtual online database§  Standards-based: WMS, WFS, SOS, WaterML, GWML, GeoSciML§  Multi-access: many portals§  Multi-data: water well records, key aquifers, monitoring data*§  Funding: partner supported, seeded by GeoConnections Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  5. 5. Groundwater Information Network Data Portal data use GIN Advanced GIN Basic Others 3D, analysis 2D GWML WaterML2Data Pipelinedata transfer WMS WFS SOS WPS Data translation Ontology Data integration Catalog Data download GML Data data supply WMS WFS SOS NRCan BC AB SK MB … USGS Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  6. 6. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data: water well characteristicsNational* coverage§  YK, BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, NS§  ~2,000,000 wells§  coming soon: missing data (talks underway) Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  7. 7. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data: aquifer characteristicsKey aquifer coverage§  mapped by NRCan & partners§  hydro/geological properties§  coming soon: selected provincial aquifer maps Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  8. 8. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data: monitoring networksCross-border pilot§  USGS-GIN water well characteristics§  USGS-GIN water levels§  N. American network? USGS groundwater level Ontario groundwater level Selected monitoring wells from USGS (red), AB (green dot), and ON (pink dot) Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  9. 9. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data pipeline: data web servicesFeature data services (WFS)§  Serving aquifers, wells, and water bodies*Sensor data services (SOS)§  Serving time series data3D geology services (WPS)§  Making 3D models from wells & mapsEnhanced querying (WFS, SOS)§  Enable complex thematic querying Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  10. 10. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data pipeline: data standards§  GroundWater Markup Language (GWML 1) wells and aquifers NRCan (OGC)§  Geoscience Markup Language (GeoSciML) geological formations and materials IUGC – CGI (OGC)§  WaterML2 water time series data OGC - WMO Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  11. 11. Data pipeline: data standards GWML1 GeoSciML WFS WaterML2 SOS Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  12. 12. Data pipeline: performance§  2 provs 50 wells = 2.17 secs, 1.08 Mb 500 wells = 15.01 secs, 7.74 Mb 2500 wells = 69.97 secs, 40.80 Mb 5000 wells = 142.27 secs, 80.41 Mb Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  13. 13. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data portal: new advanced site§  fully operational view, query, download wells§  open access Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  14. 14. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data portal: advanced features§  3D viewing of wells under land surface Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  15. 15. Data Data pipeline Data portal Data portal: usage statisticsModest, consistent usage since Mar 2011§  Re-use by 3rd parties (e.g. Ontario & Gas library, AB WEHUB)§  Positive feedback from survey of users (i.e. ON drillers assoc.) Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
  16. 16. SummaryGIN fully operational since Mar 2011Open geospatial data solutions technicallyfeasible and usableGreater interoperability being slowlyrealized but requires full interop. stackBarriers include:§  shift to SOA, including IT policy and technical literacy§  steep learning curve for open geospatial solutions Groundwater Information Network Brodaric, et al., Cyberra Summit 2011 Banff, Oct. 6, 2011
