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

Data Mashups can Help Answer the World’s Biggest Questions

As the world wakes up to the power of data, we need to start working out how to join up all this information. We need to turn it into meaningful findings that will help us to make changes to the way we live. A new technique is emerging as part of this quest – the data mashup. This approach to linking data could help us shed light on phenomena such as the health impacts of climate change....
