Scope & Objectives
The Samvera GIS Data Modeling Working Group will be developing models for geospatial (GIS) data in Samvera, including Fedora and PCDM. This work will:
provide common GIS data models for shared tools to enhance interoperability among Hydra institutions.
drive shared approaches to metadata, workflows, and best-practices for managing GIS content in Hydra.
provide a starting point, a pathway, for newcomers who want to manage GIS data in Hydra.
promote stewardship of GIS resources in a Hydra repository.
Deliverables & Timeframe
PCDM implementations of GIS data models:
“georeferenced maps” (in time for Hydra Connect 2015, late-September)
other scenarios (e.g., vector datasets, raster datasets) (2015)
Tutorial/presentation materials for workshops and conferences (early 2016)
Fedora 4 reference implementation of the GIS data models (2016)
Final data modeling documentation (Feb 2017)
Sunset date: Early 2017
Meeting Times & Communication Channels
The working group will use the standard hydra mailing lists (hydra-community, hydra-tech) with [geospatial] as the Subject prefix. We will meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month on the Princeton conference line or Google Hangouts.
Time: 1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific
Next call: Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Shared documents: Google Drive folder.
Reference implementation: GitHub repository.
Note that all members of a WG must be licensed Hydra contributors, with the appropriate CLAs in place.
Facilitator: Eliot Jordan (Princeton University)
James Griffin III (Lafayette College Libraries)
John Huck (University of Alberta Libraries)
Darren Hardy (Stanford University)
