Architecture Workshop, February 2008

A GEOSS Architecture Workshop was conducted in Ispra, Italy on February 4th and 5th, 2008. The workshop was hosted by JRC and organized by GEO Task AR-07-02 "GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP)." The Architecture Workshop preceded the 6th Architecture and Data Committee meeting (ADC-6) also hosted at JRC. 

The Architecture Workshop was an interactive event to develop requirements for GEOSS Architecture developments. The workshop covered topics relating to the outcomes of the ADC core architecture tasks in 2007 and to develop plans for 2008. Participants participated in the refinement of topics that will become part of a Call for Participation in 2008. Scenarios in the workshop emphasized needs of Societal Benefit Areas (SBA) to the service architecture in support of daily decision-support. The scenarios topics were identified through collaboration of the GEO User Interface Committee (UIC) and ADC.

The Architecture Workshop is part of an overall process of the ADC. The AIP is a forum in which GEO ADC tasks can utilize the core architecture in developing task-specific portion of GEOSS. Development as part of AR-07-02, e.g., registration and testing of services, is then "delivered" to the AR-07-01 as an operational capability. Coordination between tasks is therefore of high importance to GEOSS development. The Architecture workshop emphasizes coordination with GEO Tasks .
