1 DA-06-04 POC/Lead: Doug Nebert (USGS) Lead: Martha Maiden (NASA) Facilitate the development, availability and harmonization of data, metadata, and products commonly required across diverse societal benefit areas, including base maps, land-cover data sets, and common socio- economic data. Interpretation: Promote and publish catalogues of data via metadata that is responsive to SBAs
2 Participants (~30)
3 Work to be performed 1. Organize workshops with participants from developed and developing countries 2. At the workshops, complete an initial version of an inventory of required data, metadata, products, and services commonly required across diverse societal benefit areas 3. Publish a Findings and Recommendations document
4 Activities undertaken and planned FAO conducted a training workshop on its open source GeoNetwork portal and related open source geospatial cataloguing software. A day-long “ESA-FAO-JRC Workshop on "Catalogue/Discovery Standardization" was also held to develop a common understanding on common interoperability issues and goals.
5 Activities, continued At the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI- 9) Conference in November 2006 in Santiago, Chile, a standards workshop is planned to document the current state of standards that support inventory and access A finding and recommendations paper is suggested as a result of this workshop to identify the use cases and system architecture for a common discovery capability – and the services, data, and metadata required. Engage one or more Societal Benefit Areas to nominate and engage data content/services to be catalogued
6 Issues Significant overlap with this task and DA-06-06 (SDI and base data) and suggest full consolidation with it as soon as possible The outcome of this task is also achieved through AR-06-05 (Clearinghouse) that implements catalogues with metadata on data Results also feeds into DA-06-07 (Web Portal, Registries, and Clearinghouse).
