Air Quality Data Network (ADN• AQ CoP developed open source Community WCS server AQ Data Sharing• Used CF-netCDF and custom AQ Network conventions• Installed server @ 7 data hubs• Developed open source Community Catalog• Used ISO 19115 and AQ-specific AQ Community Data Catalog conventions• Interoperable with GIcat and GCI ADN Data Pool Content: 20 Diverse, Distributed Datasets 250 Observation/Model Parameters Contribution as CORE data, AIP-4
Summary• AQ Data Network (ADN) demonstrates the application of GEO principles and GEOSS infrastructure• ADN is still too fragile and incomplete for ‘real’ applications• The road toward integrated data systems will be long, bumpy and littered with wrecks of well-intended attempts• The main impediments appear to be human factors; the solutions will have to deal with turf, trust, jealousy…
Aug. 2011, Šolta, CroatiaNetworking Air Quality Observations and Models: From Virtual to Real Workshop Goals: Assessed the current state of the network Share best practices on interoperability Advance the state of the AQ Data Network Participants were practitioners of AQ data systems from Europe and US • Managers and programmers of major AQ data hubs • Interoperability and networking experts • Represented 18 organizations, many Integrating InitiativesSee Workshop Wiki for Details, Contacts: Rudolf Husar, email@example.com; Martin Schultz, firstname.lastname@example.org

Air Quality & Health Applications AQ CoP needs to connect and enable ‘Integrating Initiatives’ HTAP, MACC, ACP, CyAir… Support Interoperability of People!
GEO AQ CoP is a self- organized group working together to fosterapplication of Earth observations to Air Quality, connecting GEO to thebroader user communities and leveraging synergies of collaboration. Ratherthan competing, it connects and supports the activities of other dataintegration and dissemination initiatives. Community activities includeteleconferences; collaborative website; virtual workshops; gathering userrequirements; recording best practices; participation in GEOSS ArchitectureImplementation Pilots and supporting several GEO Tasks.The main tangible output facilitated by the AQ CoP is the emerging networkof interoperable air quality/atmospheric composition data servers (currently7) that use international OGC WCS/WMS standard data access protocols.The main role of the CoP is to connect and enable this network, as a Systemof Systems for Air Quality guided by: What few things must be the same sothat everything else can be different? The content of the networks data andmetadata is accessible through a distributed catalog of shared dataresources. The core network content includes datasets from surface-basedmonitoring networks (7), satellite sensors (5), as well as global/regionalmodels (3), including the MACC global aerosol model.
