Creating a Standards-Based Interoperable Framework for Ocean Data (the video!)

The newly developed video demonstration of the OOSTethys architecture premiered at the 2007 Fall Meeting of the AGU. It will be folded in to other eGY demonstrations throughout 2008.

Creating a Standards-Based Interoperable Framework for Ocean Data (the video!)

OOSTethys is a provider-to-user data systems framework, using interoperable standards, enabling discovery and use of data. Using any one of a growing number of cookbooks, a data provider can create and register a web-service, which will expose their standards-compliant metadata along with data sets to a federated search engine. Once registered, data providers can provide a single URL to colleagues who request access to specific data.

Two grass-roots community initiatives have aligned to make some concrete choices that will advance the "system of systems" concept: the OpenIOOS Interoperability Test Bed (www.openioos.org), developed by SURA partners and the broader community, and the Marine Metadata Interoperability (MMI) Demo. The combined initiative leverages the complementary experiences that their partners bring to the table.

OOSTethys is an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Ocean Science Interoperability Experiement (OCEANS IE).
