Slide1:  The Working Group on Information Systems and Services (WGISS) Chair’s Report to the 16th CEOS Plenary Terry Fisher Canada Centre for Remote Sensing Frascati, Italy November 2002 WGISS Report to CEOS Plenary Presentation Overview:  WGISS Report to CEOS Plenary Presentation Overview WGISS Summary WGISS Test Environment GRID Technology Pilots WGISS Reorganization Updated WGISS 5 Year Plan WGISS Overview:  WGISS Overview The Role of Information Systems & Services: An essential element to the success of Earth observation programmes users need to be able find and access products and services on a global basis harmonised systems are essential to allow users to easily and efficiently utilise products globally coordinated technical development is required if this is to be achieved WGISS: The Working Group on Information Systems and Services (WGISS) is there to address these issues facilitates EO data and information management and services for users and data providers on a global, regional and local basis. Current Foci:  Current Foci User Driven Development: Following encouragement by CEOS Plenary WGISS has re-oriented itself to work with user organisations in the development of tools, techniques and recommendations This it has done through the development of the Test Environment Spatial Information World: WGISS needs to be a partner in the wider spatial information world, which is rapidly developing information technology. A specific focus has been WGISS’s relationship with the Open GIS consortium (OGC) where there has been sharing of ideas and joint particpation in meetings and the development of an Earth Observation Special Interest Group Commercial development: WGISS has continued to liaise with the EO commercial sector on the development and operation of information systems and services. Commercial organisations continue to attend WGISS, Sub-Group and associated Workshops Standards: WGISS needs to influence the real and de facto standards that are driving the spatial information and commercial developments Continued links are maintained with key standards organisations (ISO, CCSDS, OGC...) WGISS Achievements:  WGISS Achievements Resource discovery and access Archive e.g. Purge alert in place; archive interchange format completed and has been adopted by ESA’s CRYOSAT Program Discovery e.g. The International Directory Network (IDN) has been operational for 10 years and has more than 11,000 data set descriptions, with >30,000 user sessions / month Search e.g. CEOS Interoperable Catalog System provides access to over 1700 catalogues Access e.g. Established a virtual CEOSnet, with regular network performance monitoring Resource generation, evaluation and utilisation Data sets e.g. Global data sets supported Data formats e.g. Data format guidelines issued Data rescue e.g. African data sets rescued by USGS at WGISS instigation for developing countries WGISS Outreach:  WGISS Outreach Demonstration at World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg GISD Portal is operational at 9000 Leaflets distributed at WSSD 25000 Business Cards distributed at WSSD 70 people attended EO/GEO Workshop at JRC, Ispra WGISS Paper at ISPRS Commission 2 Symposium in Xian, China EO SIG at the OpenGis Consortium Distribution of the CEOS CDROM 500 copies of revised WGISS brochure distibuted at various conferences and meetings CEOS International Directory Network (IDN):  CEOS International Directory Network (IDN) Demonstration at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD):  Demonstration at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) GISD Demo Team established at the May 2002 WGISS Subgroups meeting to produce a demonstration to be presented at the World Summit on Sustainable Development Conference in Johannesburg on Aug 26-Sept 5, 2002 The goal was to garner publicity for the CEOS WGISS tools and services Demonstration was patterned after the GOFC demo presented at the CEOS Plenary meeting in Kyoto in Nov 2001 Who Participated ?:  Who Participated ?
