    55This trac site was established as part of NDG2, and consists of currently active pages and activities, as well as obsolete pages. We are in the process of updating it, to clearly mark what is history, and what is current. The main function of these pages is to assist in project management and delivery, not to provide information to prospective users of NDG technologies. We will provide links from here (eventually) for those purposes.

    7 ==== History ====

    9 The old frontpage for the NDG2 project is [OldStartPage here]. 
    10  
    11 NDG2 delivered a number of products, the key ones were: 
    12  * CSML: The Climate Sciences Modelling Language. The historical project management pages are [wiki:T02_CSML here], however CSML has been spun off as an open source project with a life of it's own. See the [http://csml.badc.rl.ac.uk/ new CSML website]. 
    13  * MOLES: The Metadata Objects for Linking Environmental Sciences. The historical project management pages are [wiki:T07_MOLES here]. New MOLES activities are now discussed on the [wiki:MOLES] page. 
    14  * The operational NERC Data Discovery service, running [http://ndg.nerc.ac.uk/discovery here]. 
    15  * The operational NERC Vocabulary service, running [http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/ here], described on a [http://www.bodc.ac.uk/products/web_services/vocab/ BODC web page] 
    16  * The deployed NERC !DataGrid (software running at BODC, BADC, PML and NOCS). 
    17  * The [wiki:T12_Security NDG Security]. 
    18  * A python software stack which provided a CSML based Web Map Service and a CSML based web coverage service, as well as support for browsing MOLES documents, and visualising maps from the NDG WMS.

    209==== Current NDG Activities ====

    2211NDG3 also known as the NDG Medium Sized Initiative (NDG-MSI) began in October 2008 and will run til the end of March 2009. 
     12 
     13  '''Abstract''': NDG3 is about enabling the reuse of data within and between NERC commmunities (but also the wider community of users of environmental data). The key components of the current activity are to 1) build a community within NERC who are working not only on serving their own discipline, but on interoperation between their respective disciplines, and 2) provide the key services needed by that community: data discovery and reliable data description terms via discovery and vocabulary services (and appropriate exemplar portals). To do these things we are delivering workshops, foucssing on community tools and methodologies, and further developing and deploying services which make it possible for the met/ocean community to both exploit their own data and interoperate with the wider community via new standards compliant software consistent with the community methodologies.
