CEE data building warehouse
Terrestrial Carbon Observation (TCO)
data warehouse building workshop will be held in Prague, Czech Republic,
16-21 November 2002. Carbon scientists, data holders and programmers
from the CEE region will be invited to the workshop and will participate
in finding, formatting and preparing data and information which
will then be made available to the general and scientific communities.
Data gathering and formatting will occur before the workshop and
data will be combined with the relevant data sets already available
including those from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Distributed
Active Archive Center (DAAC).
The data from
the workshop will be built into a warehouse, using FAO's Dynamic
Atlas data management software, which can then be used by participants
and other scientists. Participants will also have the opportunity
to receive training in the use of the Dynamic Atlas to allow them
to implement and use the software in their home institutions.
Additional information and the application form to attend the workshop
are available on the GTOS Web page.
TCO will invite
participants from Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the
Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and the Ukraine. If you are interested
in participating in the workshop please send the completed application
form and your CV to the GTOS Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
workshop is funded by the Government of the Czech Republic.
