DMAC ST and the Activities of the IOOS PO Derrick Snowden DMAC Steering Team
The recent IOOS summit issued a few recommendations or challenges wrt DMAC Clear instructions on how to participate Define a way to measure progress Presentation Objective Recent progress and near term plans for IOOS in the context of these two challenges
Great, a challenge, now what? Clear instructions to participate – (in what?) Metrics for progress – (towards what?) depressive-illness-confusion-and-fear-of-sanity/
The “what” of DMAC means different things to different people, particularly the system aspects.
There are several valid descriptions of “what” DMAC is GEOSS Architecture AIP-6Architecture EarthCube Concept Groups esp. Layered Architecture Cross Domain Interoperability NOAA Environmental Data Management Framework (v0.4) Alternatively, these are efforts to define the scope of the system we need.
IOOS Clients Discovery Service Access Service
This pattern or collection of activities is present in many of the geoscience data initiatives. 7 Illustrates the Publish, Find, Bind Pattern. OGC Reference Model (OGC r7) Discover Data/Service Register Data/Service Discovery Use Data/Service Access ServiceClients
The trouble with catalogs… 8 Illustrates the Publish, Find, Bind Pattern. OGC Reference Model (OGC r7) IOOS GEOSS WMO WIS data.gov One of the summit requests was for metrics to measure progress and community catalogs offer one possibility to focus on. More and better data services, more and better tools to use data, all data and tools registered in a catalog somewhere.

Another viewpoint on maturity and measuring progress
Clear directions for participating Guidelines for implementing a IOOS profile of SOS (http://ioostech.googlecode.com)http://ioostech.googlecode.com
Tools to make it easier: Servers THREDDS 4.3 released (Unidata) –ncISO continued supportncISO –ncSOS new releasencSOS –Continued development on triangular mesh gridstriangular mesh 52North SOS implementing IOOS Profile52North SOSIOOS Profile SciWMS – Open source WMS server optimized for large netCDF data sets with some curvilinear grid supportSciWMS
ncSOS: SOS Service on top of THREDDS Open source plugin for TDS Maps CF (v1.6) Discrete Sampling Geometries to SWE Common SOS response types Wiki with installation instructions, compatible data sets and hints for use (http://asascience- open.github.com/ncSOS/)http://asascience- open.github.com/ncSOS/ USGS fork at https://github.com/USGS- CIDA/ncSOSxhttps://github.com/USGS- CIDA/ncSOSx
