As the IDN contains OpenSearch endpoints for data access and is also the CEOS Data Collections access point for the GEOSS Platform (former Common Infrastructure, GCI) and GEO Portal, it is essential that all CEOS Agencies keep information on their data collections, including Analysis Ready Data, up-to-date in the IDN according to its metadata model (DIF-10). This requires interaction with CEOS agencies and data providers.
WGISS Connected Data Assets Operational Systems (IDN, CWIC, FedEO) is maintained and operated in coordination among different agencies (System Level Team) and provides a single entry point for GEO (GEOSS Platform and Portal) to discover and access CEOS agencies data. Registration of new datasets in IDN is continuously addressed by the IDN team in coordination with the SLT members. Recent activities: ESA data collections from the FedEO system have been registered in the IDN; Working in cooperation with the WGClimate to have providers of ECV data collections registered in the IDN; Key datasets identified by the CEOS COVERAGE board are being registered in the IDN; NOAA/NCEI is working to register additional data collections in the IDN; National Remote Sensing Center of China (NRSCC) now active participant in WGISS CDA (35 millions granules); activitiesd resumed with JAXA abnd EUMETSAT and to be resumed with ROSCOSMOS; Implementation of a single front-end/portal (geographical/time search) within the IDN to access the WGISS CDA for data discovery and access is undcer discussion.
