What Is Data Navigator ? A generic tool to discover, review/download and map data. Will replace many existing applications: –Easier for users, –Puts data into a spatial framework, –View datasets in context of other datasets, –Less maintenance for AADC staff, –Uses OGC and other standards that provide interoperability with other systems.
Types of Content STRUCTURED DATA UNSTRUCTURED DATA download data KML WMS map data filter migrate more data CSV
Version 1.2 Taste of things to come: –Much more content made available, –Import external datasets (in web map service and CSV format) and display on map with AADC-sourced data.
New REST_Based Semantic Feature Catalogue Service
Motivation: Move from Application To Service Based System Capture information on Community Profiles (i.e. agreed suites of feature-types, their attributes - their units of measure and datums, feature-type relationships and classification schemes used, all linked to a specific user community or use by a computer-based tool); Assign one or more spatio-temporal geometries to a feature-type, List Classification Schemes and Themes that feature-types might be associated with, and Exercise the feature association component of the ISO model to record information about relationships between features (both internal and external to the catalogue). Chose to create RESTful (Representational State Transfer) Services
A typical REST StreamlinedCatalogueService query looks like: /StreamlinedCatalogueService/Profiles/1/FeatureTypes/10/Format/XML 3 types of service to meet different use-cases Profile Feature-Type Symbology UoM & Datum Classification Scheme Assignment Relationship Geometry Attribute Theme Classification Scheme A client is able to: Get all features for profile n Get all features for all profiles Get feature n in profile n Get a description of classification scheme n Get all classification schemes
StreamlinedCatalogueServiceService Type - Delivers more information in one hit versus an iterative drilldown IterativeCatalogueServiceService Type - Delivers via progressive drilldown through a profile Profiles/n/Get information for profile with ID=n Profiles/if no value after this switch, then all profiles are returned Profiles/n/FeatureTypes/if no value after this switch, then all feature-types are returned that are associated with profile with ID=n Profiles/n/FeatureTypes/10/Get information for feature type ID=10 Format=xml (default)Output formats that will become available (with possible additional values of: html owl or skos) ComponentCatalogueServiceService Type - gets the components of the Feature Catalogue (Feature Type, Geometry, Attribute, UoM, Datum or Relationship ) FeatureType/nGet information for FeatureType with ID=n Geometry/nGet information for spatiotemporal geometry with ID=n Attribute/nGet information for attribute with ID=n UoM/nGet information for UoM with ID=n UoMGet information for all UoMs Relationship/nGet information for relationship with ID=n
