1. Introduction1.1 What is “JAXA Distributed Data Integration System” ? Originally developed for CEOP project (CEOP : Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project http://www.ceop.net/) The system (aka WTF-CEOP system, http://jaxa.ceos.org/wtf_ceop/) is developed aiming to integrate various CEOP data stored in “distributed” data centers, where such system architectures as examined in CEOS/WGISS is applied.
1.2 Feature of CEOP Data and Distribution of CEOP Reference Sites (1) Major Feature of CEOP Data [Data Type] - In-situ data, - Satellite data, - Model output [Location] - CEOP Reference Sites [Period] - Phase I : 2002 - 2004, - Phase II : 2007 - 2011 (2) Global Distribution of CEOP Reference Sites Phase I period (2002-2004) : 35 CEOP Reference Sites Phase II period (2007-2011) : 52 CEOP Reference Sites
1.3 System Structure Standard Access Protocol (=>OPeNDAP) UT (University of Tokyo) http://ceop.restec.or.jp/ User OPeNDAP Satellite Web Browser UCAR (University Corporation for Atmospheric Research) OPeNDAP JAXA’s Distributed System Prototype for CEOP CEOP Archive Centers Request In-situ CGI (Perl) MPI Data OPeNDAP (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology) Ferret http (tailored) MOLTS XML Catalog DB Jblob Gridded Model • Currently, Satellite data, In-situ data and Model Output data (MOLTS and gridded) stored in distributed CEOP Archive Centers are available for users through JAXA’s Distributed Data Integration System Prototype.
2. Status and User Requests (1) Status • The system has been operational for five years. • CEOP phase I data (2004-2004) can be accessed via the system. • CEOP phase II data (2007- ) will be incorporated in this year. (2) Users Requests • Enhancement of current data services is requested from users towards comprehensive hydrological data service for water community. • Requested Hydrological Data: GTN-H data • Precipitation • Run off/River discharge • Groundwater • Flux • We would like to enhance both Data and Services of the JAXA Distributed Data Integration System as a portal for water community.
3.1 Various Hydrological Data < GPCC Monthly Precipitation Data > < Station Map of GRDC/GTN-R > < IGRAC Groundwater Map >
3.2 Requested Data from Users One of Requested Data for Hydrological Application = River Basin Data • Very important and essential, but missing in the current system. Requested data are sumarized Primary target data in this current first phase.
3.3 Future System Structure- Networks with Various Systems GTN-H User Potential Partners of New Collaboration Data：CEOP Phase I (2002-2004), Phase II (2007-2011) data 【GTN-H Members】 ・GRDC (Global Runoff Data Center) UT UCAR MPI Climate In-situ Model Output Satellite ・GPCC (Global Precipitation Data Center) ・IGRAC (International Groundwater Resource Assessment Center) Water Portal (extension of JAXA Distributed Data Integration System) User ・FLUXNET ・NSIDC (National Snow and Ice Data Center) ..

4.2 Current Data Services in GTN-H Members (Data and services of each GTN-H member are surveyed using its website.)
5. User Service Concept of the New System 5.1 User Service Concept • Portal are to be capable of handling various datasets and adding more datasets flexibly afterward. <Various Datasets> • - Data Type (Grid, Location Time Series) • - Hydrological Variables (Precipitation, river discharge, groundwater, flux ..) • Time Range, Observation Interval • Space Range • Format • GUI Plan for users to Select and Access Easily In order to achieve quick and smooth “find and view” of various hydrological data, some key points were identified and reflected into the User Interface plan.
