The U-MARF User Services Interface (USI)

A Java Web Start Application for On-Line Access to the U-MARF


The u marf user services interface usi

Loading the U-MARF client-side application …


The u marf user services interface usi

Click here to start


The u marf user services interface usi

Read the pop-ups and respond as appropriate. For this presentation all certificates and warnings were accepted (YES).


The u marf user services interface usi

A dynamic progress bar appears while the client-side application is launched.


The u marf user services interface usi

The Java client application is ready for your input.


The u marf user services interface usi

Note: this client-side application includes a built in help system, providing context sensitive help whenever you click the help link.


The u marf user services interface usi

This is the on-line help tool.


The u marf user services interface usi

Possible to browse help tree and obtain help and definitions for particular features and functions


The u marf user services interface usi

Back to the real U-MARF on-line interface with

Registration and login …


The u marf user services interface usi

Generate a personal account using the Register button


The u marf user services interface usi

A simple web-based form for entering user details and creating a login account

All fields marked with an asterisk “*” must be completed


The u marf user services interface usi

The default preferences for requested media and geographic region of interests may be specified. These will be applied by default but can be over-ridden for specific orders.


The u marf user services interface usi

Some formats only apply to specific product groups.

Note: in ordering data from other product groups your default format may not be applicable and may lead to non-completion of the order. Please be aware of this potential problem. We hope to minimise the occurrence of conflicts with ongoing improvements in error-handling.


The u marf user services interface usi

Click ok to return to the Java application.


The u marf user services interface usi

Login Here

NB: for some actions keyboard shortcuts are available, e.g. Alt L for Log in (active characters are underlined) and “tab” keys to change focus. These features may by OS dependent.


The u marf user services interface usi

Also possible to have registered using this button


The u marf user services interface usi

Fill in user identification and password and click “OK”


The u marf user services interface usi

Java application navigation …


The u marf user services interface usi

Left hand area used for definition and management of a query.


The u marf user services interface usi

Right hand area for the display of results.

For example, the results of a query …


The u marf user services interface usi

Product location displayed on a map.

Results table of products matching query.


The u marf user services interface usi

Additional map functions also used for searches (more later …)


The u marf user services interface usi

Tabs for the selection of different services associated with product query and ordering


The u marf user services interface usi

Login/logout, account management, information and other ancillary functions


The u marf user services interface usi

Tab for searching for products (Query) and selecting items for an Order


The u marf user services interface usi

Selection of product group

GEO:Geostationary Satellite Data (e.g. METEOSAT)

LEO:Low Earth Orbit Satellite Data (e.g. METOP)SAF:Satellite Application Facility (High Level Products based on GEO and/or LEO data from the SAFs)

Multimission:All products (i.e. queries across the GEO, LEO and SAF groups)

Auxiliary Data:This is additional data used in the processing of LEO products (e.g. calibration and ephemeris data) …


The u marf user services interface usi

Query Mode

Simple Mode: provides a basic set of search parameters.

Product

Time

Space

Quality


The u marf user services interface usi

Change Mode

Advanced Mode: provides a more detailed set of search parameters on a per product basis. Non applicable parameters are greyed-out. A single product must be selected.


The u marf user services interface usi

These tools control the presentation of the product search tree

Tree Management


The u marf user services interface usi

Three options:

1. Expand/Collapse tree nodes

Tree Management


The u marf user services interface usi

Three options:

2. Show only selected nodes.


The u marf user services interface usi

Three options:

3. Clear selected nodes.


The u marf user services interface usi

This drop down menu changes the tree hierarchy.


The u marf user services interface usi

This drop down menu changes the tree hierarchy.

Here the leaves are product types


The u marf user services interface usi

Changing the option


The u marf user services interface usi

In this hierarchy the satellites are at the leaves.


The u marf user services interface usi

Time to make a query …


The u marf user services interface usi

Select a group of products

… or only a specific product

Specify a Time range Of Interest (TOI)

Specify a Region Of Interest (ROI)

Click on Search (or hit return on the keyboard)


The u marf user services interface usi

For this case a warning occurs indicating that no Region Of Interest (ROI) was selected. Either acknowledge “Yes” or click “No” if you want to specify a ROI.

In general a query has to include a product selection and a Time Range Of Interest. Specifying no ROI will search without geographic restriction. Time range will automatically reset to valid values if inconsistent data is entered.


The u marf user services interface usi

The number of results matching the query are returned. Click “Yes” to display the results.


The u marf user services interface usi

Warning: possible to define a query with too many results (e.g. > 500). A request is printed to refine the search (e.g. make the time window smaller).


The u marf user services interface usi

The example query here only produced seven results … click “Yes”


The u marf user services interface usi
