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
