- Update from participants on use cases
- Comments on UC2 Plan
Peter Gijsbers, John Halquist, Peter Fitch, Paul Sheahan
Update from BofM.au - Paul S.
has WISKI from Kisters installed and intends to serve historical data from this server.
's interest is to evaluate data volumes transmitted. No real-time data flow is planned
at this time, but it should be capable of doing so. This effort is not engaged with the FEWS
trial group. For its evaluation, BoM
is not tied to FEWS as a client. They may also use other
clients to evaluate performance and traffic volumes.
Update from CSIRO - Peter F.
Peter F asked for a contact point for the FEWS group - Justin Robinson is the contact.
The CSIRO-ICT group will put up a data service, some raw some QC'ed. Data may be availability
may be ad hoc/event driven and thus provides a good opportunity to evaluate the combination
with an sensor event service. The group in Tasmania also has a FEWS client to work with.
Paul Sheahan will contact Justin Robinson to get engagement of the forecasting group in a
CSIRO and BoM
together will need to develop a plan that fits their needs. This will depend to
some extent on the involvement (or not) of the forecasting division.
Update from NWS - John H.
The NWS, Deltares and USGS held a conference call last week to discuss the plans for the US.
USGS will be setting up both a Web Feature Service (based on Inspire) as well as a WaterML
Sensor Observation Service.
It was agreed that these services would be provided for tributaries to the Mississippi River -
[possible locations: Chippewa, Wisconsin, Rock] and for a tributary to the Great Lakes. The plan
is to provide raw data (push and/or pull) but also an event service to notify of data updates.
There is strong interest in pursuing stage/discharge relationships (rating curves) within the
2, so existing xml formats will be provided for evaluation and possible harmonization
with other examples (i.e. WTDF, etc). There was consensus among the telecon participants that
we wanted to see Rating curves move forward.
In addition, although not directly relevant to WaterML
2, we discussed the creation of a gridded
data service for NEXRAD data.
Discussion of workplan
It was determined that the architecture portion of the plan should be extended with a set of sequence
diagrams to illustrate the different test situations.
- A raw data feed being ingested on a schedule (i.e. push and/or pull)
- A quality controlled data feed where data changes are ingested, and using an event service to notify the need for an update
Peter G. will update this section of the workplan
