Leveraging Big Geo Data through Metadata

The increase in the scale of traditional data sources, along with an explosion in the availability of sensor data, have originated massive volumes of data, a great deal of which is actually geolocated. This is partly due to the wide adoption of cheaper position technologies, and to the exponential growing of Volunteered Geographic Geographic Information (VGI) movements, which rely on crowdsourcing approaches. Big Data has generated a lot of interest amongst industry, the developer community and the public in general, and it has been at the core of many technology innovations which took place recently (e.g.: NoSQL, MapReduce); these new approaches already started to involve the geo community with projects such as the ESRI Spatial Framework for Hadoop or GeoTrellis, just to mention a few. However, the focus has been mostly on storing data (at the infrastructure level) and using data (at the analysis level), leaving aside challenges such as discoverability, integration or security. In this talk, we will address some of these outstanding challenges through the use of metadata and the semantic web, and show how the use of a decentralized and standardized catalog can help to unlock the five V's of Big Data: Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity, and most importantly, Value.

Scalability of GeoNetwork: Current Status and Future Directions

In recent times, phenomenon such as the Internet of Things or the popularity of social networks, among others, have been responsible for an increase availability of sensor data and user generated content. To be able to ingest, store and analyze these massive volumes of information is a standing challenge that is no longer ignored. The data about this data is generally speaking, less of a problem, if we think for instance that trillions of sensor records, may share the same metadata record; for this reason catalogs have been less exposed to the challenges that took by storm the database community. Nevertheless, a large variety of datasets can also pose some performance challenges to traditional catalogs, and demand increase scalability. In this talk we will look at strategies for scaling GeoNetwork through load balancing, at its current limitations, and we will discuss potential improvements by adopting distributed search server technologies such as SOLR or ElasticSearch. On the database side, we will review the current database support, which is limited to ORM, and discuss the possibility of extending it to support NoSQL databases, which could be horizontally scaled, unleashing a new generation of metadata storage.

Integrating the spatial web with linked open data using GeoDCAT-AP

GeoDCAT-AP is an extension of DCAT-AP for describing geospatial datasets, dataset series, and services. It provides an RDF syntax binding for the union of metadata elements defined in the core profile of ISO 19115:2003 and those defined in the framework of the INSPIRE Directive. Its basic use case is to make spatial datasets, data series, and services searchable on general data portals, thereby making geospatial information better searchable across borders and sectors. This can be achieved by the exchange of descriptions of datasets among data portals.
