Thirt telecon

When: Octuber 10th 2018 15:00 PM CEST - 9:00 AM EDT


  • Report on start and progress of the activities
    • V: Vocabularies for organizing Citizen Science projects Rob Atkinson (Anne Bowser, Alison Parker, Ingo Simonis)
      • Working item V.1: A list of the current projects that Wilson Center knows that can align with the Earth Challenge topics (air and water quality, pollution, human health and eventually biodiversity) and extraction of a common set of variables the usually cover. (Anne Bowser)
      • Working item V.2: Analysis of data models that contributors in the project can bring in: Air quality (HackAir), Biodiversity (Peter Brenton & Natusfera), Mosquito (CREAF), Land Use (IIASA), Phenology (CREAF), Invasive Alien Species (JRC) (Rob Atkinson)
      • Working item V.3: Consider the COST action metadata model for inclusions as another vocabulary, this may include a set of definitions of phenomena that are being addressed by CS initiatives (based on the inventory of citizen science activities for environment policies) (Sven Schade)
    • D: Data sharing using OGC standards such as O&M and SOS Simon Jirka (Wiebke Herding, Joan Masó)
      • Working item D.1: A set of instruction on how a CS project can easily setup a SOS service. It will include 52North implementation and might include MiraMon SOS (it will require some work in the implementation). It should address the case of a small project contributing to the Earth Challenge 2020. (Simon Jirka)
      • Working item D.2: Create a SOS endpoint for HackAir data with minimum resources (Wiebke Herding)
      • Working item D.3: Define the requirements for a data provider that will assist Wilson Center in setting up the challenge database. It should consider upload of data into the system. We seem to go for a harvest system instead of a federated system. It will describe a possible architecture to allow the dialog between the central data base and the small contributing projects. It should impose data sharing requirements (services o APIs) on the central database.
    • S: Connection between Landsense federation and JRC user system Andreas Matheus (Sven Schade, Christoph Perger)
      • Working item S.1: Interoperability test on the integration of LS-SSO and JRC-SSO (Andreas Matheus)
    • Q: Data quality Joan Masó (Anne Bowser, Alison Parker, Peter Brenton, Lucy Bastin)
      • Working item Q.1: Write a document on perspectives of the different quality aspects: Quality assessment (ISO 19157-QualityML), Quality improvement, Quality plan, Data Management principles (ISO 8001), Quality documentation, Quality communication (Anne Bowser)
      • Working item Q.2: Perfect the quality measurement system based on WPS and SOS harvest by demonstrating the concept in practice. Also include in the SOS harvesting the possibility to have a query for assessing the quality of "views"/"selections"/"fragments" of a dataset. (Joan Masó)
      • Working item Q.3: Refine the QualityML vocabulary with new entries considering the work done in Australia ( (Joan Masó)
      • Working item Q.4: Add new entry point the QualityML for other common vocabulary formats like TTL etc. (Joan Masó)

  • I would like to ask you to propose demos that will help us to know different resources contributed to the IE and see how we can interoperate.
    • SciStarter project-exchange API demo. (Darlene Cavalier) REquest for a demo in mid November but later in the day.
  • What you could do in the next month.
  • Next regular telecon November 14th at 15CET (or later) ?(conflict with the ESA Earth Observation. Fi-week).

Reporting and discussion

  • For each of you attending be ready to report on the following questions:
    • What have you done in the last month? (relate that to the working items identifiers).
    • Are you able to provide a demo for today or the telecons to come?
    • What do you need from other participants
    • What you could do in the next month.
