GeoWS - Geoscience Web Services

Deploying Web Services Across Multiple Geoscience Domains

This Building Blocks project intends to extend the promotion of simple web services to simplify the task of discovering, accessing and using data from multiple sources. Investigators will promote the use of this system to manage data from the long tail of science and make it discoverable, removing it from the domain of "dark data". The project will extend its approach of exposing data sets through web services to those managed by non-NSF data centers both within the United States as well as international data sets by providing resources to stand up web services to expose the data holdings of other centers. This building block is an effort to engage EarthCube cyberinfrastructure in developing, establishing and adopting international standards to allow geoscientists to focus on science and increase productivity. 

Summary of web services

GeoWS web services are available or under development by GeoWS PI institutions as IRIS, Lamont-IEDA, Unidata, UNAVCO, SDSC-CUAHSI, and Caltech.  Resources available include seismic, geochemical, atmospheric, geodetic, hydrologic and geodynamic observations and models.

On April 23, 2014 the funded partners in the GeoWS project met near the Denver airport for an all hands meeting of the GeoWS team.  We decided to change the name of our group from WS-BB to something a bit more exciting and so GeoWS is our group's name moving forward.
