feel free to send notices that you would like GTOS to disseminate
improved architecture and direct access to scientific metadata and
improvements have been made to the TEMS architecture and functionality:
Access to scientific
metadata and datasets is available through the GTOS matrix developed
in partnership with the Global Observing Systems Information Center
and NASA Global Change Master Directory (GCMD).
The matrix offers direct access to GCMD scientific metadata records
relevant to key global change issues which were selected by GTOS
scientific panels experts.
New module entirely
focusing on mountains
provides a unique overview of the global environmental issues related
to this important ecosystem. More specifically it contains a list
of the key monitoring variables to measure, links to the main data
providers, a description of the main networks and research organizations,
map interface includes an additional mountain map. Using the
legend filter it is possible to identify sites located in mountain
engine offers new possibilities, such as finding the variables
measured relevant to a specific theme. For each network
it is also possible to view all the variables measured by all its
member sites. Thus it offers a simple way to start a gap analysis
and understand what is measured and where.
i.e. Biodiversity, Coastal, etc. can be reached directly from the
accuracy and timeliness of site data updates has been facilitated
by simplifying the remote access and maintenance of the data by
the sites managers.
A contact person
is now available for each network, in order to retrieve information
for all the monitoring sites of a network.
We invite you
to explore the new TEMS.
