Presentation Transcript


National Center for Engineering Strong Motion Data

  • Build on, expand and further integrate the Engineering Data Center developed under CISN (CGS and USGS)

  • Improve efficiency in use of State and Federal funds

  • Center Management Group (parallels PMG of CISN)

  • Advisory Committee (parallels this Group and SMIAC)


NCESMD

  • Existing EDC reviewed over several years with SMIAC committee and subcommittees, and at engineering and seismological conferences - comments solicited, input ongoing

  • Current EDC has significant engineering customer base:

    • 1,800 registered users, identify their data usage purpose

    • University instructors, students, geotechnical and structural firms, and researchers

    • Nearly 5,000 downloads of data or station information in last 6 months

  • => So build on the development, growth and user input


Key Elements of Engineering Data Center

1) Central Product-Generating Agency

  • CGS, Sacramento

  • USGS, Menlo Park (possibly certain ANSS regions)

    2) Customers

  • Engineers, engineering seismologists

  • Mostly not concerned with geographic boundaries

  • Center Goal – Effective, user friendly, one-stop shopping in viewing and obtaining data

    3) Data Source/Region

  • Credit important. Quality assurance of data, metadata, and maintenance of stations is critical.

    4) Funding Agencies

  • Partners and developers

Super Shuttle Analogy

  • Currently have 6-cylinder operating fleet vehicles

  • To serve more customers better, need to augment vehicles with another seat, 2 more cylinders, and a GPS system

    NCESMD will increase capacity and increase functionality


Steps Needed

  • Add National Web page for NCESMD

  • Add Regional Web page capability, solicit Region interest in hosting Regional pages

  • Decisions/Actions:

    • Level 1 on various servers, link to Level 2

    • Level 2 and above to be on multiple, parallel servers (Akamai?)

  • Load more metadata – critical to meet ANSS Performance Standards


Start-Up: January 1, 2007
