  1. Global Earth Observing System-of-Systems (GEOSS)Architectural Framework Doug Nebert FGDC, U.S. Geological Survey February 2008

  2. Intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO) • 72 Member countries plus the European Commission • 52 Participating Organizations • GEO Secretariat (Geneva) • Committees: • Architecture and Data • Capacity Building • Science and Technology • User Interface

  3. What is GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of Systems • GEOSS is a distributed system of systems built on current international cooperation among existing Earth observing and data management systems – in situ and remote sensors and systems • GEOSS enables the collection and distribution of accurate, reliable Earth Observation data, information, products, and services in an end-to-end process • GEOSS recognizes and promotes the deployment of geospatial standards to enable broad access and interoperability among diverse systems – engages thespace and environment communityto adopt and expand Spatial Data Infrastructures

  4. GEOSS infrastructure elements • Components • Systems, projects, programs, initiatives • Services • Web services, brokered services, linked with information content for delivery • Registries • “Yellow-pages” directories of common GEOSS resources • Clearinghouse • Cross-GEOSS search capability for services and data • Web Portals • User interface to access all GEO resources, search GEOSS Registries and Clearinghouse

  5. GEOSS Registries as common infrastructure • GEOSS Components Registry • Systems, initiatives, programs and their operators • GEOSS Services Registry • Web service interfaces and websites with links to all relevant associated standards or practices • GEOSS Standards and Interoperability Registry • Service interface standards, data formats, schemas, and other standards • Non-standard community practices can be registered as “special arrangements” • Best Practices Registry/Wiki – under development • Earth Observation (User) Requirements Registry – under development

  6. GEOSS registry system objectives • To register components and have them approved by the GEO Secretariat, • To register services and associate them with GEOSS-recognized standards – and special arrangements for implementations using non-recognized approaches, • To register special arrangements and GEOSS-recognized standards. • Taxonomy of standards types is used to assist in the discovery and classification of GEOSS service implementations. • Best practices (wiki) and EO User Requirements • On-line access • •

  8. GEOSS Registries The Registries store organizational, system, and service information in the context of existing standards and practices within the GEO community.

  9. Registering items • GEO members and participating organizations are invited to register their offers for GEOSS participants to find • Components and Service Registry created and hosted at George Mason University • Registered services include data access services, WMS, metadata catalogs, order, data transformation, etc. • Services should be standards-based but may alternately reference community practices or ad hoc standards, known as “special arrangements” • Standards registry hosted by IEEE to provide official list of registered standards and special arrangements

  11. GEOSS Clearinghouse • Clearinghouse is a broker to Community Catalogues • Searches GEOSS Service Registry to identify services that can be searched • Community Catalogues may either be “harvested” in advance or “searched” at the time of a user query • Searches received from GEO Web Portal, Community Portals or any other external application acting as a catalog client • Brief or full responses are marshaled and returned to requesting client as XML

  14. Initial Operating Capability • An Initial Operating Capability (IOC) was established for GEOSS in November 2007 largely as a result of a GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot, Phase 1. Several demonstrations portray the IOC functionality. • Users can access the GEOSS IOC functionality through the GEOSS Web Portal Candidates, Community Portals and Decision Support Clients. • Providers can register their services as part of the IOC at the GEOSS registry system. • Developers can view a description of the GEOSS IOC architecture through the website:
