The Keyword Aggregator web service: a tool for managing digital objects' keywords
The need to tag digital objects in various repositories such as datasets or scientific papers to allow for thematic classification is a well-known problem. In some cases a free tagging approach is used where contributors can add any keywords they desire while in other cases, selection from a controlled vocabulary is mandated. To enable repository m... moreanagers to allow both free tagging and the use of controlled vocabularies, we have created the Keyword Aggregator (KWA) system, key aspects of which are outlined next. A web service that: provides fast search access to vocabulary content; stores multiple, controlled, vocabularies of terms; permits the addition of new keywords. An example widget that makes use of the web service and can be embedded in a web page. Use of a relational database that captures keyword use statistics. A management methodology that: allows particular vocabularies to be selected for use on a per-widget instance basis; allows vocabulary updating through storage in versioned repositories; stores vocabularies with vocabulary-level metadata enabling vocabulary discovery; permits one vocabulary to link to a single term in another vocabulary (allows a 'vocabulary-of-vocabularies'). The focus of KWA is on the creation of a flexible keyword aggregation, management and search system for science keywords, however vocabularies of any kind could, in principle, be handled by this system. This release allows KWA to be run under Python 2 or 3 and more importantly, adds containerisation support via Docker to simplify deployment. In addition, graph loading scripts were added and various internal improvements and bug fixes were made. See the README.pdf supporting attachment for more detail. less

eReefs - Science of GBR
eReefs is a collaboration between the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, CSIRO, AIMS, Bureau of Meteorology, and Queensland Government to develop an information system that will provide a picture of what is currently happening on the reef, and what will likely happen in the future. The system will span the catchments, through estuaries, across the lago... moreon to the open ocean, and will provide information on physical processes, sediment transport, biogeochemistry and ocean colour. It is anticipated that the system will assist stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds in making sound strategic and tactical decisions relating to reef management. The eReefs projects consists of tasks that address enhanced monitoring, data standards and architecture, operational marine and catchment modelling and reporting and visualisation. less
