Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) I-Frame Portals: A Lightweight Solution to Implement Customized Portals for Earth Science Data Search and Discovery

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

The Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) ‘i-frame’ portal solution leverages the full capabilities of the Common Metadata Repository (CMR) and GCMD keywords. This implementation is lightweight and requires minimal effort to implement as either a stand-alone portal or an ‘i-frame’ on a provider’s website. An ‘i-frame is an HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a website. A portal is a virtual subset of the directory with a focused view (based on a specific science discipline) for organizations to maintain and document their metadata. Portals can be customized and configured based on a pre-defined query (e.g. json={"condition":{"project":"ESIP"}}). A demonstration of the portal capabilities will be given and attendees interested in utilizing the portal solution  can provide a  query so portals can be created on the spot.

Draft Presentation Outline:

  • Overview and Purpose of GCMD Portals

  • What It Takes To Make a Useful Portal

  • Capabilities of the I-Frame Portal Implementation

  • How Metadata Providers Can Use the I-Frame Portal

  • Demo of How to Create an I-Frame Portal
