ESSI16Service-Oriented Architecture solutions for Earth Science applications and Long Term Data Access
|Convener: Stefano Nativi | Co-Conveners: Pier Giorgio Marchetti , Wim Som de Cerff|
Earth scientists integrate knowledge stemming from different disciplines and the constituent parts of the Earth system, with the objective of understand its properties as a whole. This requires the integration of information systems characterized by diverse protocols and interfaces, different data policies and security levels. Advanced cyber(e)-infrastructures will support the operation of an Earth System Science Community.
Data centers and their access via Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA) interfaces provide a basis for progress towards these goals, and have the important task of data preservation and access for future research. This session aims to present and discuss relevant topics and open issues dealing with SOA and ROA for the Earth and Space Sciences in the areas of data discovery, evaluation, access, annotation and curation, processing, and use.
