REASoN REASoN Project to link NASA's data, modeling and systems to users in research, education and applications Application of NASA ESE Data and Tools to Air Quality Management Rudolf Husar and Stefan Falke (Co-PIs) Washington University in St. Louis Project Period: Nov 04 – Oct 09 NASA Applied Sciences Program Air Quality Team Meeting October 27-30, Washington, DC
Background/summary material, DataFed, etc.
Project “Phases” Technology Development –DataFed development –Architecture development –Use of web technologies to build online tools for air quality data analysis and decision making Technology Application –DataFed Workshops –Technology Infusion –Community building within broader context of interoperability and GEOSS
Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) REASoN program included requirement for at least 0.25 FTE participate in activities like ESIP and the NASA Earth Science Data Systems Work Group (ESDSWG) An air quality focus group met during the 2005 ESIP Winter Meeting to discuss how ESIP might play a role in advancing the use of earth science data in air quality management. Interest is high within ESIP and air quality is recommended as a new ESIP Air Quality “Cluster” datatools,methods,services brings together groups and helps build links among them in order to achieve an effective use of data in decision-making that could not be achieved by any organization acting on its own. datatools,methods,services a) b) c) aids in reuse of data, processing tools and other services so that projects, programs and agencies avoid the end-to-end burden of developing those capabilities or having to create the connections themselves. users

Data and Metadata Flow User Provider GEOSS Clearinghouse OGC CSW Queryable Air Quality Specific ISO CSW Profile OGC CSW Returnable Metadata Description Data Binding Metadata for Finding and Accessing Data Core Discovery Metadata/ Machine Metadata OGC W*S Capabilities Workspace for Data Stakeholders DataSpaces Extended Structured Metadata ISO 19115
Core Discovery Metadata Service Name Service Description Service Type Spatial Extent Temporal Extent OGC CSW Queryable Air Quality Specific ISO CSW Profile OGC CSW Returnable Metadata Description Data Binding Metadata for Finding and Accessing Data
Extending Structured Metadata Discovery metadata is not enough. Metadata should be independently understandable without the aid of experts Metadata should provide information specific to AQ users OGC CSW Queryable Air Quality Specific ISO CSW Profile OGC CSW Returnable Metadata Description Data Binding Metadata for Finding and Accessing Data
Refined Search for AQ Data in uFIND AQ Community Portal AQ uFIND Community Portal Provider GEOSS Clearinghouse Coarse Filter Refined Search
DataSpaces DataSpaces further extend the structured metadata by enabling the stakeholder communinty to: –Contribute additional, flexible metadata –Discuss dataset –Collect distributed, dataset-related resources –Connect the structured metadata to community content DataSpaces are workspaces designed to capture the critical community knowledge about the dataset.
Development of AQ Community w.r.t GEOSS Architecture Evolving AQ Architecture Web Apps AQ WMS Get Capabilities GetCap To ISO Find AQ data
How you can contribute and benefit Community Building Share your interests and project contributions (like this meeting) Use ESIP for advancing your project objectives (e.g., ‘built-in’ testers, workshops, users…) Make community relevant to your objectives, bring others (data providers, analysts, modelers, decision makers, etc.) into the community Help define the GEOSS Community of Practice Enhance the Information Infrastructure Become a ‘node’ on the air quality interoperability network Learn best practices in implementing standards for sharing your project data and tools Participate in (and influence) the GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot Use the AQ Community Information Architecture (register your services in GEOSS, find information resources useful for your project) Participate in the development of air quality information networks Collaborate on AQ Science and Research Projects Define projects that cut across multiple organizations focused on advancing our understanding of particular aspects of AQ science
