OGC Open Science Persistent Demonstrator


Polar TEP has been selected as one of the platforms for the Open Geospatial Consortium’s Open Science Persistent Demonstrator (OSPD) project.

OPSD is a long-term inter-agency initiative aiming to enable and communicate reproducible Earth Science across global communities of users and amplify inter-agency Earth Observation mission data, tools, and infrastructures.

A major goal for this activity is to test and demonstrate the current level of interoperability among still maturing Earth Observation and Earth Science cloud technologies and infrastructures developed by ESA, NASA and other space agencies and international organizations and contributed in kind to the initiative in a coordinated approach, building on existing investments where appropriate.

The OSPD project will explore the principles of reusability, portability, and transparency, within an Open Science Persistent Demonstrator. The goal is to enable and demonstrate prototyping technology solutions that create capacity for better and faster Earth Science research, comparison scenarios, as well as higher adoption of EO-based results and impact on society.  Ultimately, the Open Science Persistent Demonstrator will be a 24/7 available web application that demonstrates and tests scientific workflows across several existing platforms. The goal is to demonstrate how platforms operated by different organizations can be used for collaborative research and data representation.
