Initial study areas goals

Initial Study Areas & Goals

  • Prototype will focus on the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay regions to support use cases for:

    • Invasive species

    • Climate change

  • Provide additional data to http://www.data.gov


Potential naeol datasets

Potential NAEOL Datasets

  • Integrated Taxonomic Information System

  • EPA Datasets:

    • Watershed boundaries, wetlands, stream segments, water quality, air quality

  • NASA Datasets:

    • land cover type, gross primary productivity, vegetation indices, land surface temperature, fire, etc..

  • Smithsonian:

    • Chesapeake Bay watershed environmental and ecological data

    • Collections

  • USGS NBII

    • US mirror to GBIF

    • GAP species distributions

    • GAP Protected Areas

    • Global Invasive Species DB


Current status

Current Status

  • Working group has been established

  • DNS is being registered (http://naeol.gov)

  • EPA has Google Earth Enterprise application up and running for geospatial data

  • Site to be hosted at NBII

  • Developing Use Cases


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Continue convening the working groups

  • Finalize on content management system

  • Continue delivery of geospatial datasets to EPA for installation on the Google Earth Enterprise (i.e. fusing vs. web-services)

  • Develop species mashup capability

  • Identify available web-services and enable
