Spatial Data Infrastructure at the Julius Kühn Institute
Managing federated geodata
The goal of this series of projects is to identify, discuss and document the current and future requirements for the geodata infrastructure at the Julius Kühn Institute (JKI). Hence, 52°North supports the JKI in identifying a solution for managing geodata and creating the prerequisites for a short-term implementation of a federated research data infrastructure.
52°North has collected, discussed and documented the specific requirements for the spatial data infrastructure in a joint workshop with JKI staff from different teams and organizational units. The following technical aspects, among others, play an important role in the development of the solution approach:
- Dealing with large amounts of data
- Access control
- Metadata description
- Unifying endpoints and data access
- Version control
- Embedding geospatial data in web resources
- Integration into local infrastructure
In the follow-up projects, 52°North prototypically implemented different aspects of the GDI. The focus in 2022 was on the integration of raster data from a rasdaman instance into GeoNode v4.
