1 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 Users and the GEOSS Architecture Prof. René Garello, Chair ICEO A&DWG Dr. Jay Pearlman, Chair, IEEE CEO

2 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 The Series The User and the GEOSS Architecture Objectives –Focus on broad range of users and regional issues –Educate about GEOSS – user approach and architecture (structure) –Through interaction with users, get feedback on their needs – for data, information and infrastructure –Create continuing interactions/follow-ons including training and case studies Status –Two workshops have been completed –Follow-on ideas are being developed and tested –Additional workshop are in planning

3 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 Workshop Format Overview The workshops have a regional focus Typical duration is 1-2 days – 1.5 days works well Three core GEOSS presentations include a GEO overview, architecture and user interface User presentations focus on two topics of regional importance – selected by local organizers Workshops are sponsored by GEO participating organizations and members; fees are minimized to encourage participation Attendance, typically 60 participants, includes users, GEO representatives and members of the Earth Observation community

9 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 Workshop II

10 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 Recommendations - workshop I Open, organic, flexible architecture incorporating the need for long term planning continuity and comparability of data and information Data rescue – long term archive with a common standard of historical data – Shared resources (e.g., super computers) – coalesce regional interests into shared systems risk management through redundancy Ability to integrate different sources of data, temporally, spatially and spectrally common terminology and definitions interoperability rules compatible with existing systems knowledge of control and data quality including metrics and standards for quality

11 A&D meeting, Paris 2-3 March 2006 Recommendations - workshop II Similar to previous workshop plus: Taylor to regional needs and skill levels Data delivery: The distribution architecture must account for the difficulty associated with communication networks in Africa. Three components of data delivery require consideration: 1) Data distribution (mechanisms) 2) Packaging (standards) 3) Dissemination In Situ data is a pivotal component of the GEOSS architecture. Metadata is important but not always available, especially in the African context Architecture must allow outreach and capacity building
