Oceans Portal Workshop th March 2004 30 Oceans Portal Project Healthy oceans: cared for, understood and used wisely Parashar for the benefitAmit of all, now and in the future healthy oceans: cared for, understood and use wisely for the benefit of all, now and in the future healthy Kim Finney C.I.O. National Oceans Office Background • National Oceans Office • Branch of the Department of Environment and Heritage • Project Owner: Ian Cresswell • Project Manager (Core): Amit Parashar • Project Manager (Outreach): Alicja Mosbauer Motivations: AOP • Australia’s Oceans Policy · Launched in 1998 · Maintenance of healthy and productive ecosystems · Science based planning and management · Economic, environmental, social and cultural aspirations accommodated through integrated planning and management Motivations: Regional Marine Planning • Policy driven by science • NOO is data user, not a data custodian • Need wide variety of data · Easy to discover · Easy to access · Easy to use • Project built into first Regional Marine Plan as a deliverable Motivations: Regional Marine Planning Biological & Physical Information Economic Information Impacts Information Indigenous Information Social & cultural Information Statutory Information Motivations: Costs Project Output Cost National demersal fish project Distribution maps & species database $670K National Invertebrate datasets Distribution maps & species database $100K National Sediments database Sediments database $820K National Bathymetry Grid Bathy grid $250K National Uses Mapping Database and maps $400K SST Satellite Datasets SST products $90K National Fish Uses Mapping Distribution maps and statistics $500K > $2.6Million Most are harvesting exercises. Issues: Discovery of data Access to data Standards based Making it happen • Key Components: • Community of Interest • Marine Information Infrastructure (MII) : Catalogue Application • Exploitation of MII: Portal Application • Governance Community of Interest • Australian Oceans Data Centre Joint Facility · · · · · Formed in 2004 Virtual, distributed data centre Board, Technical Committee Collaborative Heads Agreement Adoption of Oceans Portal Project as the necessary infrastructure for AODC JF Community of Interest • Oceans Biogeographical Information Systems · Information management arm of Census of Marine Life (COML) · NOO is the chair for COML Australia · NOO is managers Australia’s OBIS Node, partnership with CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research · Biological information Community of Interest • Online Zoological Collections of Australian Museums · Museums data from all the States in Australia · Data being provided via OBIS Marine Community of Interest Partners Marine Catalogue OBIS Department of Defence Australian Institute of Marine Science Data Server Data Data Server CSIRO Marine Research Data Server Server Server Bureau of Meteorology Data Data Server Australian Antarctic Division Server Oceans Portal Geoscience Australia Workstation OZCAM Virtual Australian Ocean Data Centre Joint Facility Agency Data & Service Portrayal Type NOO 80 Marine Uses Maps national coverage (WMS) CMR 10 years of SST data from AVHRR thermal imagery around Australia (WMS or WCS) DoD Gebco bathy data; Near real time SST data (global); Wave height climatology, global, monthly (all WMS) CBM Bouy and ship obs; Coastal synops stations obs; bathy profiles; 10S to 50S,100E to160E (WMS & WFS). AIMS Daily NOAA AVHRR SST images of GBR including temp,pressure, wind and clod cover & 30 mins weather obs from 5 locations along GBR (WMS) AAD Marine species, seabirds, marine mammals observation data below 42 south (WMS) NOO/CMR Connection to OBIS (point taxa observation data) Australian Museum Connection to OZCAM (point taxa observation data) GA Bioregionalisation datasets (1 or 2 as yet un-defined) BRS Fish uses maps – catch, gross value, change in effort for all fishing types (WMS) Community Participation • Working Groups: · · · · · · · Metadata WG Governance WG Sea Surface temperature WG Marine Planner WG Species Finder WG Symbology WG NetCDF WG Marine Information Infrastructure • Information infrastructure • Standards and processes enforced by software • Community Information Models • Standards: WFS, WMS, WCS and OAI • Web services • CubeWerx Registry (ExXML)Marine catalogue Community of interest Portal Application • Tool that exploits information infrastructure • Provides mapping/discovery of data/data services • Web Map Composer (SCO) Portal Application Marine catalogue Community of interest Future • Wide adoption • More exploitation, ie more applications Specialist Your Community Application Portal Application Marine catalogue Community of interest Conclusion • Ambitious project in that it is genuinely a development by a “community of interest”. • Lead the way in developing some key Australian (international ?) Spatial Data Infrastructure technologies and standards, • Requires national and international collaboration, • Will need to expand partnership once runs are on the board. • Catalogue will be accessible by anyone. • All standards and specifications will be public.
