adding link to discovery deployment UML

T01 Discovery

The NDG discovery portal provides a web portal accessible by standards compliant browsers that allows a user to freely discover datasets held by data providers who have offered up appropriately formatted discovery metadata for harvest by the discovery portal backend. The current discoveyr architecture is outlined here:

source:TI01-discovery/trunk/doc/NERC Metadata Gateway.JPG Where NDG compliant data providers hold datasets, the portal will provide information about NDG services available for those datasets, and provide links to instantiate these services.

The key subcomponents are (with keywords for tickets in brackets):

  • Software for discovery portal deployment (available to third parties to deploy)
  • Deployed discovery service (running at NDG)
  • Schema instances for various discovery formats
