Data integration and standards at ioc of UNESCO (ICT2010 Networking Session)

  1. 1. Data integration and standards at IOC of UNESCO <ul><li>Edward Vanden Berghe </li></ul>

The organisation <ul><li>UNESCO </li></ul><ul><li>Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) </li></ul><ul><li>International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) </li></ul><ul><li>Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used to be Census of Marine Life </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Now IOC under IODE </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Networks <ul><li>Both IODE and OBIS are global networks </li></ul><ul><li>Main product is data warehouse </li></ul><ul><li>Standards of critical importance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standards for formats </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standards for content (‘vocabs’) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Single standard is an illusion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Limited set of standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Crosswalks between them </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. International partners <ul><li>World Meteorological Organisation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Together JCOMM </li></ul></ul><ul><li>EU </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SeaDataNet </li></ul></ul><ul><li>GEO, GOOS, GEO BON </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Global observing systems </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Standards development <ul><li>Several working groups and projects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Metadata </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Based on ISO-19115 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>JCOMM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Together with WMO </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ocean Data Portal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Together with SeaDataNet </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OBIS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Together with GBIF/TDWG </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Example: OBIS <ul><li>Network of 15 Regional OBIS Nodes, 5 Thematic OBIS Nodes </li></ul><ul><li>All contributing data </li></ul><ul><li>RONs and TONs are aggregators in their own right </li></ul><ul><li>Total of nearly 30M records, from 870 individual data sets </li></ul><ul><li>Integration on a large scale </li></ul>
  7. 7. Example: OBIS standards <ul><li>Biogeography: GBIF/TDWG </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Darwin Core, Extended to OBIS Schema </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ABCD </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Metadata: discovery metadata </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Global Change Master Directory – NASA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MEDI – IODE; FGDC – US Gov? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Taxonomy: World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contribution to Species 2000 and Catalogue of Life </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Geography </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Polygon sets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>EEZs, FAO areas, IHO… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gazetteer </li></ul></ul>
  8. 10. OBIS standard output <ul><li>CSV and KML </li></ul><ul><li>OGC Services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>WMS and WFS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Already consumed by others </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Digital Generic Information Retrieval (DiGIR) </li></ul><ul><li>REST in preparation </li></ul><ul><li>Empower others to use OBIS data </li></ul>
  9. 13. Biology requires more documentation <ul><li>Taxonomy (‘species’) is an extra dimension </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Taxonomic names are often misspelled </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Many different ways of measuring things </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Weight of a jellyfish? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Species identification labour-intensive and specialists’ work </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But automated systems are starting to appear </li></ul></ul>
