The GABBs team has recently funded by the National Science Foundation's Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) program to begin a new phase of this project which is informally referred to as GABBs 2.0. Our overarching goal is to provide seamless connections among platforms, data and tools, making large scientific and social geospatial datasets directly usable in scientific models and tools. This CSSI project will creates an extensible geospatial data framework (GeoEDF) to address prevalent geospatial data challenges, support domain science needs, and contribute to a national geospatial data and software ecosystem. Specific objectives include:
Users with little or no programming experience will be able to create and build data pipelines that collect and process data at multiple scales and convert such data into usable results. Four case studies will demonstrate the capability of the data framework: flood hazard prediction, plant phenotyping, water quality monitoring and sustainable development. Building on the full capabilities of HUBzero, we aim at putting putting easy-to-use tools and platforms into the hands of researchers and students to conduct scientific investigations using findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) science principles.
Collaborating organizations range from academic, research projects, community organizations and industry, including:
NSF CSSI Data Framework program
Title: Extensible Geospatial Data Framework towards FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) Science
Project duration: October 2018 - September 2023
