The NERC Portals project

Since it's inception the NERC Portals project has started to be called the Data Portals Prototype Project (DPPP) across the participating institutions.


Conversion from CSML to KML

Since CSML currently lacks certain aspects of describing the context data it contains in the features (i.e. the metadata layer), the actual mechanisms used to convert data from CSML to KML do use only limited amount of CSML as a data source. The rest comes from different languages derived from GML. Hence this project became rather a demonstration of how OGC web services can be integrated into a common framework, which has a potential of working using purely CSML data, once CSML matures enough to contain all information in it.

Currently only CSML documents containing solely < csml:GridSeriesFeature> and < csml:PointSeriesFeature> elements are supported.

The functionality is split into two eggs/projects:

  • csml2kml - provides static functionality, with the output being KML stored in files (*.kml, *.kmz),
  • csml2kmlpylon - is a web server (to be run by the BADC) providing web services which bring dynamic content to the viewing experience in Google Earth via HTTP.
