1 Development of New GEO work plan Earth Observation Capacity Building at IRD Frédéric Huynh Institut de Recherche pour le Développement Director ESPACE Unit Maison de la Télédétection - Montpellier - France -

2 The Institut of Recherche for Development (former ORSTOM) is a French state-owned science and technology research institute under the joint authority of the French Research and French Foreign Affairs ministries. The IRD is conducting scientific programs focusing on the relationship between humankind and the environment for southern countries. The aim of these programs is to contribute to the sustainable development of these countries. IRD covers a wide variety of research fields organized into more than 80 research units in 30 countries on the 5 continents. What is IRD ? Budget 200 millions of Euros Staff 2083 employees, including 900 researchers, 778 non research staff and 545 other status 939 of permanent staff posted overseas in 39 countries : Africa, Latin America and Asia, French Tropical overseas dependencies (Dom-Tom s),. Research 80 research and service units including 40 joint units

3 IRD-ESPACE Unit develop innovative methodologies based on earth observation and integrated approaches for natural resources management transversal and pluridisciplinary research team (63 scientists and engineers) specialised in developing spatial applications in the context of development principals direction of research : earth observation in tropical region (spatial indicators, real time monitoring) integrated approaches (spatial analyses, actor representations, participative approaches), environmental information systems for decision support. thematic applications : marine ressource, littoral (ICZM), health (spatial survey), land use and land cover changes international network of receiving stations (NOAA/AVHRR, SeaWifs, SPOT-VGT, SPOT, ENVISAT) as regional space observatories for research science and environmental survey

4 Potential contributions to CB tasks Open Source Software (CB 0701e) MD-Web sofware Thematic DSS OSS software (water, heath, land degradation, fisheries) Knowledge Sharing IRD expertise (health, environment, …) Contributions to the CB Portal/GEO Portal Thematic data (water, ocean, health, …) Spatial products and tools GEOSS data sharing principles Long term observatories for regional environmental survey : SEASnet Regional receiving station to access to HR data for research, training and development projects : SEAS-Amazonia/Caraïbes, SEAS-Indian Ocean. => A way to define specific data policies for sustainable develoment finalities => Demonstrate the benefit of provinding « full and open » regional access to data, metadata and product in developping countries

5 Spatial data, tools and knowledges sharing to produce thematic products - A regional network based on 5 receiving stations (L-Band : NOAA-AVHRR, Seawifs) to survey the intertropical regions - A partnership with France (IRD), Spain (Canaria Univ.) and institutions in developing countries Specificity : - Independent data sources - Control data sets quality - Observation on long-term - Genericity in methodology - Participative way (users, managers and scientists) to develop long term applications SEASnet project

6 SEAS-Guyane SEAS Guyane project : Survey of the Environment Assisted by Satellite Ground receving station for high resolution remote sensing applications Technological plate-form for acquisition and treatments of space datas (SPOT, ENVISAT, …) for resarch, formation and regional development projects A long term project to develop regional capacities to built regional environmental observatories

9 A generic spatial search engine for sustainable development purposes A contribution to build portal

10 Various data sharing projects Sharing data and knowledges A strong experience in Africa, South America, Asia Over sustainable development purposes Land Degradation Natural resources management Coastal management Water management Experience on organisational and technical aspects Methodology to co-build a sharing knowledges on purposes and data An organisation approach to integrate data sharing inside data production Training and technical support to build capacity

11 Various data sharing projects in Africa, South America Sharing data and knowledges ROSELT PRCM SPISA SIA PNBA ROSELT PRCM SPISA SIA PNBA SPISA PRCM ROSELT

12 Generic spatial search engine and metadata manager Knowledges bases embedded (spatial & terminological referentials) Open source licence (LGPL) A Java JEE modular application elaborated with high performance objectives An Open source project

13 User friendly : Web 2.0 based Spatial search approach Thesaurus (littoral, water, …) Adaptability : Building specific knowledge referentials to improve relevance of search engine Building catalogs on any metadata standards (ISO, Dublin Core, SensorML, Thredds, etc.) Interoperability : ISO /OGC compliant (ISO 19115/119/110 – OGC CSW 2.0) Capacities to build geocatalogues
