2020-08-22 - First Meeting

Time: 12:00 - 12:30, Location: Niwa Attendees: Andrea, Glen, Susi and Jesse

Notes

Yesterday at my internship I had a meeting with Susi and Andrea. this was regarding the NZODN Data Ingestion. This involves ingesting a dataset to the GeoServer by Christmas. I will ingest one dataset as work experience. then once successful, I will be contracted to ingest each dataset afterwards.

The difficulty in ingesting data arises from multi-disciplinary data sets. For example, Seismic, Ecological, Weather. They each come with their own preferences for file formats and conventions. The project exists since Niwa must make a certain quota of their data available to the public.

Glenn, who works at Catalyst, was previously in charge of ingesting GIS data from Niwa into the NZODN. This work has an existing codebase written in Python for ingesting existing datasets.

(Optional) There is also a possibility of integrating an existing wellmapsrvdev02 Postgres server. This could be used to store the data on. GeoServer is a portal for storing files, and not an RDBMS.

Time: 12:00 - 12:30, Location: Niwa Attendees: Andrea, Susi and Jesse

Notes

The NZODN ingestion project is off to a good start. Andrea and Susi joined me on teams to discuss the details of the job. The project consists of ingesting two datasets to a GeoServer application. Biology and CTD dataset. These have been discussed previously (at the workshop #1).

We now have a port of contact for the technical and scientific aspects of each dataset. For the Biology dataset, we have Dave Bowden (Scientist) and Glenn Wallbran (Technician). For the CTD we have Brett Grant (Scientist), and again Glenn. Additionally, should I have peripheral questions I can contact Susi (Geo-Physicist). Her availability is limited due to a voyage on the Tangora.

Andrea has suggested that I come into Niwa twice a week in order to make progress towards this project. Andrea is a Python developer and mentor to me, who will be able to provide guidance towards the best path forward. Ideally, I should meet the deadline of one ingested dataset by Christmas. Today I set up this Github repository to track my progress towards this goal.

Time: 12:00 - 12:30, Location: Microsoft Teams Attendees: Andrea, Kevin, Susi and Jesse

Notes

Kevin Mackay

We spoke to Kevin to clarify the specifications required for the GeoNetwork catalogue. All that is required is the URL for WMS and WFS. Kevin described the downloading as a blackbox, likely to be handled by the GeoServer. We now have an account on the metadata catalogue, this can be used to create entries. These entries are not visible to the public until we change the permissions.

Service Desk

We spoke the service desk regarding our ticket #8. The lack of documentation for the NZODN service provided by a third-party vendor is not ideal. We are making direct changes to a production server. The only backup available is to restart the entire server (which can take a couple of days). However, for now, we will be granted sudo access to use the robot user on the wellimos server.
