Best Practices

Overview


Two types of clients are emerging to support various
communities of practice belonging to the 9 GEOSS
SBAs



Portals:
web
-
based community portals providing
focused access (and value
-
added services) to
community
-
related resources



Application clients:
downloadable stand
-
alone
clients providing access (and value
-
added
services) to community
-
related resources

Overview


Wide range or clients from response to CFP



GEO Portals
: Compusult, ESRI, ESA/FAO



Reusable components
: CNES jEOBrowser client
(OpenLayers), ERDAS TITAN, NASA WorldWind



Community clients/portals
: AIRNow, CIESIN Web Client,
Disaster Response Community Portal, ESIP AQ Portal,
GeOnAS portal, GeoPortal.Bund, MAIS/ISPRA web GIS
portal, Mines Paris TechEnergy Portal, NASA World Wind,
NOAA GOSIC Community Portal, NIDIS Drought Portal,
NIMSAT Community and Education Outreach (CEO) portal,

Overview



How can these clients best leverage and participate in the GEOSS
Common Infrastructure ?



How shall these clients leverage and connect to the 3 GEO portals ?



What resources are available via GEOSS to support client
development and avoid reinventing the wheel for each community ?



How can the GEOSS Common Infrastructure accommodate for the
different community requirements (interoperability, semantics,
workflows, etc) ?



How can we best capture the lessons learned and best practices from
AIP
-
2 in this area to support future community portals and application
clients ?

Portals & Application Clients WG


Transverse WG in GEOSS AIP
-
2 convened to


Support the incorporation of contributed Portals & Application Clients
consistent with the GEOSS Architecture…


Capture consensus (and expectations) on Portals & Application Clients
definitions, requirements and resources


Client Tier and relationship to Access and Business Process Tiers


Support the 4 Community WGs on their client development


Feed requirements to Clearinghouse, Access and Workflow WGs


Feed requirements/wish
-
lists to GEO Portals


Support the evolution/continuous development of GEO Portals in support
of SBAs and communities of practice


Capture best practices, lessons learned and reusable components
identified during the pilot


Enable cross community WG exchange of info



Ongoing Activities


Developing P&C use cases


Including close coordination with Clearinghouse & Access
WGs on use cases


Defining approach for capturing client best practices


Starting with a call for reusable client resources


Encouraging cross community WG exchange of information
in this area


Following up with Community WGs scenarios and client plans


Focusing on client requirements and use cases


Coordination occurring via

Use Cases
-

Update


Discovery (currently being coordinated with CCRM)


Discovery, saving to, sharing of and loading of OGC
Context Document


Discovery of components in clearinghouses (testing
interoperability across clearinghouses & registries)


Discovery and display of CAP alerts


Semantic search support


Authentication of users


Referral from Geo Portal to community client


Visualization of EO products


Ordering of products (in coordination with Workflow WG)


Ongoing Activities

Reusable Components
-

Update


Open call to pilot participants to submit reusable components that
they’re either currently providing or using in their client development


Current list includes


CSW client for ESRI ArcGIS users (CSW client)


NASA WorldWind JAVA code & Demos (open source 3D
visualization platform)


ArcGIS Explorer 3D viewer (free 3D viewer)


This list should be much longer. Where are the

it’s also supported by the ESRI one)

Hoping to use the Geo Portals as another referral service to
their community portal


Community portal to be provided by GPIP

Next Steps


Finalize use cases by working closing with other
Transverse WGs


Coordinate more closely with community WGs


Populate reusable components page


Including documenting guidance on submitting
portlets (for use by other portals including the 3
GEO Portals)
