Request for Information on Existing Data and Information Mediation Services
The US National Science Foundation is developing a new data and knowledge management system for the 21st Century, called EarthCube, with a goal of providing geoscientists with the data and tools needed to improve interdisciplinary science and education. Differences in the attitudes, protocols and semantics used in sharing information across scientific communities is one of the key challenges that EarthCube must address. Solutions based on having all disciplines adopt a common discovery and access technology are deemed unrealistic so we are looking for instances of interdisciplinary interoperability supported by means of mediation.
If you use or know of any software or service that mediates the interactions between multiple, heterogeneous systems to facilitate the discovery, access, processing or semantic interpretation of data, we would very much appreciate receiving your answers to the questions below. If you cannot answer all the questions please provide a contact for obtaining further information.
Your response will be most useful to us if received by September 24. You may either reply to this email or send your response to Siri Jodha Khalsa at [hidden email].
Thank you for your cooperation.
