Agenda and Discussion

  • 2013 interoperability topics (to result in whitepapers)
    • GEOLabel update
    • Discuss work and timeline for registration alternatives
      • SB (email): Here is the whitepaper document to work on collaboratively for registration alternatives. I had to manually copy the original comments into this Google Doc, but they all there.
      • Still have question about what catalog services the Clearinghouse can harvest, and how the DAB relates to the CSR
        • DAB harvests GEO Clearinghouse, which harvests CSR
        • Catalogs registered in CSR that are not CSW-based (eg, OAI-PMH, OPeNDAP) do not get exposed to the DAB by the Clearinghouse
        • It is desireable to have consistent metadata from data providers for registration, ie, via DAB, via CSR
        • Using a DAB client (eg,, can see list of resources available. We need this list to be exposed within the GEO Web Portal
        • DA: need to have Doug Nebert involved in this discussion; we continue to question and guess about the detailed architecture
        • [ACTION] SB will talk with Doug Nebert in next week and incorporate answers to questions in the googledoc
      • SB also posted the GCI Architecture Document on the SIF Twiki page, accessed here:
