1 TERN Eco-informatics – Overview for DCRG Craig Walker Eco-informatics Facility Director

2 Meeting Objectives Revisit what Eco-informatics is doing and why Equip Data Custodians with knowledge of ÆKOS Demonstrate the (pre) Production Portal Provide information on the SHaRED tool for Researcher Data Submission (NeCTAR) Provide information on the Soils-to-Satellites web application (ANDS) Facilitate your input/feedback Identify potential/enhanced collaborations

3 TERN Community Data Cyberinfrastructure Physical Environment Ecological Plot Data Biodiversity & Physical Environment Data Analysis & Synthesis ACEAS – Australian Centre for Ecological Analysis & Synthesis AusPlots-F – AusPlots Forests AusPlots-R – Rangelands Coasts – Australian Coastal Ecosystems eMAST – Ecological Modelling & Scaling LTERN – Long TERM Ecosystem Research Network MSPN – Multi Scale Plot Netwoork Soils – Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia SuperSites –Australian SuperSites Network MSPNCoastsOzFlux TERN Central Office eMAST ACEAS Soils AusCover Eco- informatics SuperSites Transects LTERN AusPlots - F AusPlots -R

4 Eco-informatics Goals Revisited Bringing ecological data together for informed re-use Priorities for NCRIS: Negotiate sharing and access for key national ecological databases (States and Commonwealth) Consolidate ecological datasets from across Australia Develop a national framework for describing and publishing ecological information (standards) Encourage researcher uploading of data (SHaRED) Build a One-Stop-Shop portal for ecological data These Goals are being addressed through the Australian Ecological Knowledge and Observation System – ÆKOS

5 Eco-informatics Goals cont. Supplementary funding for projects: Fully ingest, integrate and deliver TERN Ausplots data (EIF) Support mobile field capture platforms and data (EIF) Support the TERN Data Discovery Portal (EIF) Incorporate MSPN datasets in ÆKOS (EIF) Build SHaRED tool for Researcher Data Submission (NeCTAR) Build Soils-to-Satellites web application (ANDS) Extension of ontology, vocabularies (CRIS) Bug fixes, incorporate feedback, support & maintenance (CRIS)

6 ÆKOS Roadmap Alpha Portal Datasets ingested for SA, WA, QLD Data licenses signed for SA, QLD Beta Portal Further data ingested Additional licenses Ausplots ÆKOS Portal Release 1.0 complete Open-source code & documentation Contingency arrangements 2013 2011201220132014 Start SHaRED Start Soils-2-Satellites Start MSPN data ingestion Start Data Transfer Tool Complete SHaRED Complete Soils-2-Satellites Start CRIS funding for AEKOS Complete MSPN data ingestion in Delivery Partners Complete CRIS

7 Environmental Information Landscape for Australia

8 Collaborations

9 The ÆKOS system Flor a Govt Ecological Surveys Fau na ÆKOS Data Repository TERN MSPN Data Agency Datasets Web Services Data Portal SHaRED Tool RIF-CS ANDS, TDDP End-user Community Access Control Facilitat ed Ingest Researcher Submitted Data Information Framework Licensing Framework Soils-to- Satellites ALA Data sourced from Govt environmental databases – observations + context TERN-By or CC-By licences Storage is via a no-SQL flexible Graph Store Information framework using an ontological model and controlled vocabularies Deliver via a Data Portal – at present Beta 1.2 Services publish to ALA for S2S QA/QC through DSL Model (next slide) RIF-CS feed to TDDP and ANDS Once SHaRED is online then more datasets so potential for feeds to DataONE etc

10 The Future Potential Extension of thematic coverage to include vertebrate and invertebrate fauna, fire monitoring, aquatic ecosystems More data ingested to strengthen the focal point of the portal, given that ÆKOS is generic and supports all ecological data Improvements to visualisation and analysis based on feedback from the ecological community ÆKOS is a suitable repository for the vast volumes of hardcopy material including an effective means of dealing with filing cabinet leftovers from existing databases National method catalogue for ecological data collection Strong partnerships developed with custodians can be extended to support capacity building within Agencies, and can optimise legacy and future investments

11 Standing items for DCRG agenda 1.Data sensitivities and utilisation of ALA services by Eco-informatics and vice versa. 2.Taxonomic handling – multiple State taxonomies 3.Data governance model for annotations/Permanent Identifier for Data
