I hope that this is of interest for you and may start some interesting discussions during the face-to-face meeting next week. The following link points to a Website of the 'Big Data in Geographic Information Science Panel 2012' which focused on semantic heterogeneity. It contains 97 minutes of video recording as well as all slides from the…Continue

I am convinced that the core requirements for semantics software are quite basic and community-independent.

I am not an ontologist. I understand only the basics about what semantic technologies are good for. And even then I had to draw a picture. Ontologies don't fill the same role as UML class diagrams do in the realm of software engineering.Continue
The Brokering team has added a document on "Brokering Principles for EarthCube". The group collaboratively wrote this document to layout the current problems that brokering addresses and to begin to create a definition of what a brokering framework is.
The image below gives one sample brokering framework, but is not the only solution. This group is looking for community…Continue
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is working on creating a standardized method of federating fileservers, and they are also working on using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) based identity federations as a source of principals in RPC (read: non-web based) applications. These are current activities in a completely transparent organization which does not charge membership fees. If you have expertise in these areas, I believe the EarthCube effort could greatly benefit from…Continue

By way of introduction, I thought it best to post this white paper I wrote up not too long ago. Being from US Forest Service Research and Development, I am neither from the geosciences community, nor am I able to petition the NSF for funds. However, we may share some common concerns and/or obstacles, and hence I may be able to leverage some of the solutions you generate. This white paper should give…Continue

I've been delving into the literature on double-loop learning and organizational managment (and innovation too) and I've got some ideas that might be of service. And I would love some feedback too.

I just posted a copy of a paper on Geoinformatics (written for geoscientists). Some may find it useful, as we seek to engage a broad spectrum of geoscientists in semantics/ontology group activities. The pdf file is on my website.

Over the past 20 years, the Web has moved from Web 1.0 (circa 1990) — document web — to Web 2.0 (circa 2003) — Read-Write Web with broad variety of social data including user generated content (UGC) — to Web 3.0 (circa 2010). A key characteristic of Web 3.0 is the inclusion of a broad variety of data – including traditional structured databases and extracted data, social data, sensor data (including those generated by mobile and internet connected devices), historical and…Continue
