LCC IDMN Webinar Series – Next Generation Data Integration Challenges

US Department of the Interior (DOI) WebEx Enterprise Site.

Topic: LCC IDMN Webinar Series – Next Generation Data Integration Challenges
Session status: Not Started (Registration)
Session date: Thursday, August 28, 2014
Starting time: 2:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Presenters: Ashley Fortune Isham
Description: Future landscape-scale analyses will rely on more and larger datasets, more computationally intense models, and an ever increasing rate of data inputs and outputs. Integration activities must keep pace with these needs.

Spatial Data Infrastructure Usability Comparison Assignment

Submission Materials

Submission Field :

Student Comments : Hi Dr. Bishop, I apologize for the late submission. I mistakenly thought I had more time to work on this. I appreciate the opportunity to submit this work with a penalty deduction for lateness. I am a bit concerned about how to incorporate literature, which I did not do. If I need to add in references to literature on online mapping usability, perhaps I could use some additional time this evening? In for a penny, in for a pound after all. Thanks, Tanner

Instructor Feedback

Grade : 52.00 out of 60

Comments :

This was done well. Future work would benefit from positioning your thoughts within existing literature. In that way, work you do matters to others. I will make it more clear in future versions of the course by assigning more required readings about usability in the GeoWeb week, including the best example from this class, and providing examples of what I mean by referencing literature. I did expect course materials to inform this first assignment (e.g., Harley, Crampton), but I will work better to help connect the dots in future assignments. For example, using another researchers framework would have been one way to do a usability assignment. Also, headings and subheadings help organize a paper, so you may want to use that structure in future work. The instructions also asked for screen shots and I think you could have used more of those. At least one for each application is what I will add to the directions.

Hi Tanner, I have attached the file from 20111025 and a new version created today.

Please do forward any final results from your analysis so that it may be archived if appropriate.

thanks,

Hello Dave, I sent this message to your G-mail account.

I thought I should’ve cc’d to your ku.edu to cover all my bases – here’s the message below:

I’m a Masters candidate in Information Science at UT-Knoxville working as a GRA on the DataONE project with Dr. Tenopir.

I’m working on a research question regarding social networks and influence within the DataONE user community.

Poking around on the DataONE docs.dataone.org site, I found a document you’d created in October of 2011 that I believe will be helpful in exploring this topic.

It’s called “List of DataONE users and groups” and apparently was created using a python script.

The exact filename is 2011025_dataone_users.xls

I found this file under “Project Information” <https://docs.dataone.org/member-area/project-information> on the main navigation menu of the DataONE docs site.

The download URL for the document is located on this page: https://docs.dataone.org/member-area/project-information/d1_users.xls/view, along with this description:

This spreadsheet lists members of DataONE, their group memberships and mailing list memberships. It is generated by the python script located in subversion software/tools/trunk/listusers/listusers.py executed with the command: python listusers.py -x file_name

I’m interested in this file as a view of historic membership of the DataONE community, but I’m also interested in re-creating the file to reflect current membership on the docs.dataone.org site.

I’m working with Chad Mitchell, another Masters candidate and research assistant at
UT-Knoxville.

He has some experience with python and I’m curious as well – if it’s possible for you to share, we’d like to learn how to generate a new file reflecting current membership.

Is this something that we or someone on the Dev team would have access to?

Barring re-creating your methods, we’d appreciate if you could supply us with a 2012 version of the d1_users.xls file.

Thanks for any help,

Tanner
