EarthCube Resource Registry, Progress & Review

There are many reusable infrastructure components (resources of different types) already developed within the EC community, as well as in related NSF-supported, government, and commercial projects. However, they are difficult to discover and re-use because of the lack of consistent information model and vocabularies describing such resources that can be used across the spectrum of EC activities.
The  EarthCube Resource Registry will be a component in the evolving GeoCODES platform architecture for EarthCube designed to address this problem. In this breakout session we will review progress on development and testing of the registry information model for description of reusable technology components for the EarthCube community. The currently planned scope for the registry includes software, interfaces, APIs, interchange formats, repositories, services, vocabularies (a.k.a. ontology, information model), specifications, and catalogs. Resource descriptions will be encoded using rdf for linked data integration, and the goal is to minimize the generation of new rdf classes, using existing vocabularies (DCAT, VOID, FOAF...) whenever possible. The purpose of the registry is to assist developers and scientists find components useful to streamline research workflows, and to enable greater automation of the linkage from data to software for analyzing and viewing the data. There will be a hands-on exercise for participants to experiment with describing resources that they are familiar with using the draft registry information model, with discussion for feedback and suggestions.
