Developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), MAEviz is an open-source project that helps reduce the time from discovery gap that exists between researchers, practitioners, and decision makers by integrating the latest research findings, most accurate data, and new methodologies into a single software product. NCSA has also developed the open-source Tupelo semantic content management framework and is employing it to manage a wide range of e-Science entities (including data, documents, workflows, people, and projects) and a broad range of metadata (including provenance, social networks, geospatial relationships, temporal relations, and domain descriptions). The Tupelo framework includes an HTTP-based data/metadata management protocol, application programming interfaces, and user interface widgets which have been incorporated into MAEviz as well as NCSA’s portal and other workflow tools and is a key component in recent work creating dynamic digital observatories (digital watersheds) that combine observational and modeled information. Recent development efforts have integrated the two projects by creating a general RCP and Tupelo based semantic data catalog upon which MAEviz’s geospatial data management system is built. This presentation will discuss the architecture of the data catalog, the manner in which RCP was used, and the potential for use and extension by the community.
Shawn Hampton is a Senior Research Programmer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in Urbana, IL. He has 10 years of experience in developing enabling technologies using Java and grid computing for the scientific community. He is currently developing desktop scientific applications and middleware using the Eclipse Rich Client Platform.
