Description

This is a call for participation in the MIG temporary sub-group on Download Services for Observation Data.

To address action MIWP-7a (#2129) of the maintenance and implementation work programme, ISA action 1.17 ARE3NA has delivered a study and open source implementation of an INSPIRE Download service based on the OGC Sensor Observation Service. The outcomes of the study are:

  • A proposal for an update of the Technical Guidelines for INSPIRE download services, which is adding SOS 2.0 as a third possible solution, complementing the currently existing Atom and WFS solutions.
  • Source code, technical documentation and open source implementation of an SOS, which implements the proposed updated TGs to comply to INSPIRE legally binding requirements.

A workshop was organized in Arona, Italy, on 08 April 2014 as part of the study to discuss with data providers on the results and way ahead. It was proposed during this workshop and also in the consequent meeting of the MIG on 9 and 10 April to establish a dedicated MIG sub-group to take over the results of the ARE3NA study and propose to the MIG appropriate updates to the existing INSPIRE TGs. Whenever relevant, the sub-group shall as well test and create prototypes of information systems (e.g. SOS clients) to demonstrate the added value of the updates proposed to the MIG.

The main outputs of the sub-group will be:

  • Updated TG document for INSPIRE download services, including sections on download services for observations
  • Update TG document for observations and measurements (D2.9) (if required)
  • Example applications serving/consuming observation data through INSPIRE/SOS.

A detailed description of the scope, tasks and deliverables of the sub-group are available in the attached Terms of Reference.

Nominations by MIG representatives and applications from the pool of experts should be posted as comments to this issue, specifying the following information:

The initial deadline for nominations and applications is 2014-11-21.

The virtual kick-off meeting is tentatively planned for [TBD].

#3 Updated by Michael Lutz almost 4 years ago

Nominated by Sweden:

Name: Anders Foureaux
E-mail:
Affiliation: Swedish EPA
Expertise: I work as Process Manager Data feeds – Data hosting. No hands-on experience. But I have put in on the agenda since 2010 when a consultant hinted that this will probably be a recommended download service. And I have told our data hosts that the shall be prepared for SOS.
Contributions: I (Swedish EPA) has commissioned a survey the requirements that must be placed on an infrastructure that supplies SOS - services. My role is thus like a “purchaser” or requester of setting up the service.

#5 Updated by Benoit David almost 4 years ago

Nominated by France :
Name: Mickaël Treguer
Affiliation: IFREMER

Expertise :
- development of a prototype on marine time series with O&M results. On-going development of operational version with different results encoding formats (Json, netcdf) for vertical profiles and time series sampling features. The on-going development includes an off-line download function for big volumes. Besides, experiences with 52°north deployment and participation to a workshop last novembre (http://52north.org/home/events-in-2013/sensor-web-workshop-2013).

Motivation:
- Interest for standardization of marine observations (features of interest: sea bed, water column and biota). We are required to share standards and profiles with connected communities: fresh water (in MSFD context), atmosphere (in Copernicus context) and geology (in edmonet context). SWE standards are candidates for implementation of:
1) download services downstream the data centres: this means result encoding and off-line (asynchronous) mechanism are wanted to manage big volumes.
2) real-time links from sensors to data centre: this means transactional functions for sensor description (sensorML) and sensor observations (O&M) are also studied.

Contribution :
TG proposal review, test approaches, example applications
