Ecoinformatics

Information science and information technology for the environment

  • Sound information as the basis for environmental policy, decisions, and action
  • Information technology that supports and enables development of sound information
  • Facilitate interaction with the information
    • Human – Computer
    • Computer - Computer
ecoinformatics1
Ecoinformatics
  • What are the key elements needed for an ecoinformatics marketplace?
  • What actions should this Interagency/ International Cooperation on Ecoinformatics take?
  • How can the I/ICE contribute to and draw on R&D programs of NSF, & EU DGs?

actions
Actions
  • Much is already being done on environmental & health information
    • Billions are being spent on data, systems, analysis
    • Millions are being spent on information technology
    • Millions are being spent on standards
    • Millions being spent on semantics development and data harmonization
  • We can have great influence in bringing coherence to these expenditures/efforts with a tiny fraction of these funds.
data standards
Data Standards
  • Avoid a combinatorial explosion of data content, description, and metadata arrangements for information access and exchange. Data standards and metadata registries can help.

possible actions
Possible Actions
  • Identify and develop ecoinformatics key elements
    • Lead semantics development efforts and provide semantic services
    • Lead standards efforts
      • E.g., for Reportnet, the Exchange Network, GBIF
  • Lead adaptation/adoption of emerging technology
    • Environmental semantic grid
    • Environmental data grid
    • Environmental computational grid
      • Hardware cycles
      • Software/models

a possible collaborative project
A Possible Collaborative Project
  • Initiate an interconnected EU-US:
    • Environmental Data Grid
    • Environmental Computation Grid
    • Environmental Semantics Grid
  • Organize key infrastructure components for demonstration
    • E.g., EDR, EPA supercomputer, models
    • DOE/LBNL supercomputer (under DOE-EPA MOU)
    • XMDR Semantics Server
    • Interagency semantic and data resources e.g., GBIF
  • Hold competition for innovative use of the Grids.
  • Organize conference(s)
  • Funding: $50m over three years
  • Call it the Ecoinformatics Grid?
