GD-02 GCI Operations
General Description

Operate and maintain a user driven GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI) to discover and access GEOSS resources (e.g. datasets and services). Ensure routine operations, whilst maintaining the GCI as the architectural framework essential to supporting the GEOSS Data Sharing Principles. Support the integration of new GCI capabilities as developed and tested in GD-07. Continuously engage with data and service providers and user communities to connect new resources.

 

Implementation approach, respective responsibilities
The task activities will be performed by a task Team under the coordination of the GEOSS Development Working Group (GDWG), see task GD-07. The role of current operators will be kept for 2016, progressively adding user support functions by the Secretariat.

GCI Components operators (ESA, CNR, USGS, IEEE)
Perform GCI Components operations including maintenance, administration, monitoring and integration – covering both software and hardware
Maintain partnership with Data and Service Providers and improve these Providers discoverable and accessible through the GCI in mutually agreed methods Connect new providers which are relevant to Flagships and key members and participating organizations
Collect requirements and feedback from User Communities and Stakeholders for improving current GCI capabilities to ensure reliable products and services

Planned activities and outputs for 2016

Continue GCI operations

Develop a concept paper on user desk will work by April 2016, with interactions and support by SIF. User desk should be operational in 2016

Start the configuration control of GCI

Improve capabilities of existing brokering providers in particular more accessibility

Connect new providers giving priority to those relevant to Flagships, Initiatives and Community Activities and key members and participating organizations

Definition of improvements of early next year to be incorporated in the next 3year WP

Test and release new GEOSS resource registration process, including the synchronization of the CSR and the DAB.

Group Membership

Overarching coordination and GCI configuration management including to maintain the GCI documentation and the list of the GCI Component and related representative persons

Develop a service desk operation concept paper by April of data and technical assistance and support services to Data and Service Providers, User Communities and Stakeholders. Support will be provided by Standard and Interoperability Forum (SIF)

Coordinate to improve capabilities of existing providers and also to connect new data providers
