Description/Abstract

Providing homogeneous access (‘services’) to heterogeneous environmental data distributed across heterogeneous computing systems on a wide area network requires a robust information paradigm that can mediate between differing storage and information formats. While there are a number of ISO standards that provide some guidance on how to do this, the information landscape within domains is not well described. In this paper, we present an information taxonomy and two information components, which have been built for a specific application. These two components, one to aid data understanding and the other to aid data manipulation, are both deployed in the UK NERC DataGrid as described elsewhere.
