Gateways 2020 is scheduled from October 12 to October 23, with the tutorial and workshop track during the first week and the main conference track during the second week. This fifth Gateways annual conference is an opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways, while supporting and growing our community. Register for the conference by October 5.

The default time zone is Eastern Time. You can adjust it to your time zone on the right side of the schedule underneath the search box (or in the top bar, depending on the width of your screen).

C1: GeoEDF: A Plug-and-play Workflow Framework for Earth Science Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Typical earth science research often involves a complex workflow of data acquisition from various remote data sources, followed by preprocessing, data preparation and fusion, and finally, simulation or analysis and validation. Several science gateways now provide dedicated data management, visualization, and processing capabilities for the kinds of geospatial data that is utilized in most earth science research. Despite the transformative impact that such gateways have had in these domains, in practice earth science research workflows still involve a mix of custom-built, non-reusable code, desktop tools, and intermediate data transfers to and from the gateway. Researchers consequently end up spending inordinate amounts of time on data wrangling rather than focusing on actual science. GeoEDF is designed to address these inefficiencies by making remote datasets directly usable in computational code and facilitating earth science workflows that are based entirely in a science gateway. In this demo we will demonstrate the key elements of GeoEDF that enable declarative, end-to-end, “plug-and-play” workflows in the earth sciences as well as the integration of GeoEDF with an existing, production, geospatial science gateway.
