Description

Responding to the need for geospatial tool and data capabilities in HUBzero from various communities, a Purdue team is developing and integrating geospatial capabilities into the HUBzero software. Funded by the National Science Foundation’s Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) initiative, the follow-on program to the DataNet program, the GABBs project is a four-year software development effort aiming at enabling researchers, students and citizens to share geospatial data and tools online without requiring significant amounts of software expertise or IT administrative privileges. The new geospatial functions are being integrated into the HUBzero framework such as RAPPTURE Toolkit for rapid tool development, web component interface, resource management and publishing, and so on, and will be available via the open source HUBzero software releases. The GABBs project is building on past and ongoing projects such as DRINET, GeoShare, and WaterHUB, as well as integrating with other community efforts including iRODS distributed data management and Globus data transfer. This presentation provides an overview of the project, usage examples, and expected outcome. The project seeks input and requirements from the broader user community to guide its development.
