OGC Update: Climate-Hydrologic Information Sharing Pilot Demo

Sponsored by: The Open Geospatial Consortium

Sponsor: Click here to view

During this webinar, you will learn about the OGC Climate-Hydrologic Information Sharing Pilot (CHISP-1), which is an innovative prototype virtual observatory system for publishing water resource information collected from observations and forecasts in the U.S. and Canada. This webinar will describe CHISP-1, the open standards it utilizes, and the functions it’s designed to support.

Just the Facts
In a nutshell, CHISP-1 makes it possible to link diverse hydrologic observations data to representations of the stream network, enabling queries of conditions upstream from a given location to return data from all relevant gages and well locations. Previously, this was not practical because of the diverse data sources available.
 
Key Takeaways
CHISP-1 is designed to support:
  • Hydrologic modeling for historical and current stream flow and groundwater conditions
  • Modeling and assessment of the nutrient load into the Great Lakes
  • CHISP-1 also provides a model approach for bridging differences in semantics across information models and processes used by various data producers, to improve hydrologic and water quality modeling capabilities.
Speakers include:
  • Chen-Yu (How) Hao, GIS-FCU
  • Alex Crosby, ASA
  • Alex Joseph, Explorus
  • Lew Leinenweber, CHISP-1 Initiative Manager, OGC
  • Peter Vretanos, CHISP-1 Initiative Architect, CubeWerx
The CHISP-1 activity is conducted under the policies and procedures of the OGC interoperability program.
 
Sponsors include:
  • GeoConnections (Natural Resources Canada)
  • US Geological Survey (USGS)
  • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Who should attend
Anyone interested in integrating water resource information from diverse sources for purposes of alerting, reporting and modeling
