GIN A Network for Geoscience data

VIEWS: 7 PAGES: 14

									Geoscience Information Network
 A Digital, Distributed, Interoperable Data
      Network for the Geosciences



      Lee Allison, Arizona Geological Survey
        Association of American State Geologists

     Linda Gundersen, U.S. Geological Survey

              Stephen Richard, AZGS

             Tamara Dickinson, USGS
Geoscience Information Network (GIN)

3,000+ data
bases in USGS
& 51 State
Geological
Surveys
                  Defining GIN
• collections of service definitions,
  interchange formats, and
  vocabularies
• independent of hardware,
  operating system, or lower-level
  network protocols
• new technology will only require
  implementation of network
  elements in a new environment
• architecture allows for the use of
  multiple conventions for different
  user groups
• EarthChem test bed - linking a large,
  complex global data system




Geochemical data from GEOROC, NAVDAT, PetDB, and USGS = 594,335+ samples
