EnviroGRIDS workshop "Bringing GEOSS Services into Practice", Istanbul, 23 Sept. 2011
The enviroGRIDS training workshop series "Bringing GEOSS Services into Practice" aims at teaching how to install, configure and deploy a set of open source software to publish and share spatial data and metadata through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) using OGC web services & ISO standards.
GEOSS has been created as an international voluntary effort that connects geospatial and Earth Observation and information infrastructures, acting as a gateway between producers of environmental data and end users. The aim of GEOSS is to enhance the relevance of Earth observations and to offer public access to comprehensive, near-real time data, information and analyses of the environment.
The training workshop will cover interoperabilit y, hands-on experience with web portals, information access, open source software and spatial data sharing through web services and the GEOSS registries.
A detailed program will soon be posted on this page.
