The IML-CZO has developed a data management plan that supports recent trends in the scientific community moving toward more clearly defined datasets and reproducible research. Our Cyberinfrastructure (CI) takes advantage of complementary efforts developed through two NSF-sponsored programs, the Integrated Data Management System for CZOs and the Community Information Model projects.
Visit the IML-CZO data Geo-dashboard for more information.
We are working with other CZOs to develop cross-CZO capabilities for sharing, integrating, analyzing, and preserving CZO data.
These two projects (the Integrated Data Management System for CZOs and the Community Information Model project) provide guidance for developing consistent semantics, metadata, formats, protocols, and a central data discovery portal and interface for online data visualization. We are creating a web-based environment to serve the IML-CZO observatory scientists, the broader CZO network, and the general public, with the goal of building an environment that provides the community easy access to disparate data, data aggregations, and data products through the web to support modeling.
The proposed system will be driven by data (stored or acquired in real-time) and data types and provide access to:
Through this three-tiered approach, we plan to separate the client layer from the middleware service layer and, in turn, from the data source layer to allow the system to scale horizontally as new resources are added and new data products are defined.
