Tools and services developed and supported by EOL/DMS

Key community-wide tools and services developed and supported by the EOL/DMS include Real-time Visualizations, Communications Infrastructure and Situational Awareness tools, the Field Catalog and the EOL Metadata Database and Cyberinfrastructure (EMDAC) System. In addition, many tools and are developed for individual EOL observing systems. Please see our Software Download Center for access to platform-specific software tools for aircraft, remote sensing and ground based in-situ observing systems.

Real-time Visualizations, Communications Infrastructure and Situational Awareness

DMS supports the development and deployment of real-time cyberinfrastructure related to communication and collaboration, integrated real-time visualization of data with disparate time and space domains, networking and in-field data management. These services aid in coordinating researchers and platforms in order to obtain the best possible dataset through interactive mission coordination of observing systems during field campaigns.

The EOL Metadata Database and Cyberinfrastructure (EMDAC) System

The EMDAC system is a comprehensive metadata database and integrated cyberinfrastructure that will be the hub of all EOL data services. Through EMDAC, DMS will create bridges to multi-agency data portals, creating compatible metadata and data access infrastructure which connects EOL to the common services of today while allowing us to meet future needs through a modular and extensible architecture.

The EOL Field Catalog System

EOL's field catalog is a web-based tool for collecting, organizing and presenting reports and quick look data products during the field phases of observational experiments.
