  1. NERC DataGrid Status: ESP June 2004 Bryan Lawrence on behalf of the NDG, BADC and BODC. Ray Cramer, Marta Gutierrez, Kerstin Kleese, Siva Kondapalli, Sue Latham, Roy Lowry, Kevin O’Neill, Ag Stephens, Andrew Woolf British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  2. NDG Aims and Metadata Taxonomy (Review  ) Demonstration of NDG in action (no grid services yet, but shape of things to come should be clear) “Stub-B” New Tool: DataExtractor Status Issues with metadata Chemistry data at BADC Numerical Simulation Discovery & back to Status Outline British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  3. Simulations Assimilation Complexity + Volume + Remote Access = Grid Challenge British Atmospheric Data Centre British Oceanographic Data Centre http://ndg.nerc.ac.uk British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  6. NDG Metadata Architecture • Service based model: • clear separation between discovery and use • discovery service standards compliant and interoperable British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  7. Multiple Protocol Support will be built into the “NDG Vanilla Discovery Service” (D) - Discovery Open Archives Initiative – Digital Library Protocol for harvesting metadata. NDG Supports Multiple Discovery Services – “build your own” OAI OAI British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  20. B metadata is a store of metadata intended to: Allow the production of the various “industry standard” discovery formats (DIF, DC, FGDC/GEO, 19115) Provide a more complete metadata store than that demanded by the usual discovery formats, leveraging the metadata holdings of the data centres Allow a smooth link across to the data browse and use elements of the NDG Expected to expand in importance as we can add more semantic detail to the schema Role of B metadata: domain ontology British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  21. B metadata – a simplified view British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  22. Core linking concept is the deployment How is the B metadata implemented? of a Data Production Tool at an Observation Station on behalf of an Activity that produces a Data Entity Activity DataProductionTool ObservationStation Links the metadata records into a structure that can be turned into a navigable XML using Xquery or XSLT with any of the record types as the root element. Deployment Each of the main metadata objects has security data attached to it. This means that this can be applied to queries on the metadata Data Entity British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  23. “B” metadata works well in databases, but what about: presentation “standalone generation of “D” storing metadata locally as files “Stub B” – what is it? • Given a raw B record for a Data Entity contains just: • the basic data entity details • a series of references to related records • no details such as: • activity name, • instrument name, • station “stub B” is the base entity expanded through its own related deployments and internal references British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk

  24. Makes application developers’ lives easier, especially in the presentation of search results Allow off-line storage of metadata by users Basis of D production via XSLT Hook into main B repositories Potential discovery format (while there are lots around already… this could allow more “discipline dependent” discovery) Role of Stub B British Atmospheric Data Centre http://badc.nerc.ac.uk
