CNR Activities

  • Adding to the iMarine SDI myOceans and World Ocean Atlas layers #1614;
  • Plannign TM plugins for integrating figisapps.fao.org (#1592) and data.fao.org (#1593) in the iMarine infrastructure;
  • OAI Tree Manager Plugin has been enhanced
    • The new tree generated by OAITMPlugin has an OAI record as part of the tree (not escaped xml text);
    • It is now possible to specify the metadata format.
    • The WIKI documentation was updated.
    • Added a simple URI resolver (considering DOI and URN).
    • Related tickets:#1446 #1513 #1264
  • SPD Tree Manager Plugin has been revised
    • The query system of SPD TM Plugin was updated to SPQL 2.0.
    • Related ticket: #1586
  • On SPD Service Plugins
    • SPD Service Plugins have been updated to SPD Service 2.0.
    • IRMNG plugin: added a scientific name column to the DB, because the original dump contains a column 'scientific name + author'. Using this new column, looking for a scientific name X in Irmng plugin, we'll get only those results where X is contained in the scientific name and not in the author.

IRD Activities

The currant work aims to set up a tuna atlas by using results from both geospatial and semantic cluster: fact sheets will be generated from RDF triples delivered by iMarine SPARQL endpoint and indicators will be generated with iMarine WPS server.

Geospatial cluster: we have developed 3 additionnal WPS for the Tuna Atlas use case:

  • Atlas_i4_SpeciesMonthByOcean: build a graph of monthly (seasonal) catches by ocean for a unique species
  • Atlas_i7_SpeciesMapRelativeCatches: build a map of 5° degrees squares catches percent of total catches for the species
  • Atlas_i8_SpeciesMapRelativeCatchesOtherSpecies: build a map of 5° degrees squares catches of selected species percent of total catches for the all species

We are now focusing on the few remaining WPS to build the tuna atlas (see: http://wiki.i-marine.eu/index.php/Geospatial_Cluster_-_Services). Our next step is to learn how to use / execute those WPS (Executeprocess query)to enable their use in the Tuna Atlas.

Semantic cluster: set up of a web squeleton for the TLO based tuna atlas :

- MVC structure based on Apache Struts²
- Function to execute SPARQL queries in a generic manner from within JSP pages
- Firsts tries with the SPARQL endpoint recently provided by FORTH

Once we know hwo tu run a process from the iMarine WPS server, we will set up RDF classes and properties to indicate the application how to write a compliant WPS request.

According to xSearch needs, improvement of the Opensearch/RSS module of Ecoscope
