Bruce: We'd definitely be interested in accessing the data as well.
We're also working on a similar suite of tools for accessing remotely sensed data via open standards. The data is frequently updated and forms part of a multi-decade archive used for emergency management, natural resource management, and agriculture.
This is one of our current beta applications:
We're a small team working on all aspects of development (frontend, backend services, database, et al.). We've utilised:
for the frontend and:
- MapServer (w/ MapScript customisations)
for the backend services.
We'd be interested in sharing experience and knowledge with others working in this space.

These technologies are definitely relevant to our areas of interest as well.
I work for Landcare Research New Zealand. We are developing geo-spacial portals, namely:
While Our Environment is not officially launched yet, but it presents some of the features that we have implemented, all using open source libraries and software.
David is in CC, who you might be interested in collaborating with.
Additionally we use:
on the client side
Java Restful Services
on the server side.
Let us know if there are opportunities of collaboration.

We have a **prototype** that is currently not available externally. We have a few 3rd party data IP issues to resolve.
This prototype was a finalist at the V.SIBA spatial excellence awards.
Development was jointly funded by both the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency as well as by the Bureau of Meteorology.
In brief, we tested an enterprise grade spatial architecture for providing access to climate and climate projections related data.
The architecture is based around the use of Open Spatial Standards, so that in the future, we can provide access to data as well as portal type tools via open spatial standards such as WMS, WFS and WCS.
The interface is based around the Weave Spatial Intelligence / Business Integration framework.
Other key components include:
I have been very impressed by the functionality and performance of the open source components.
We tested realistic quantities of data covering the Australian Continent (and beyond):
* topographic data, based on the Bureau's GeoFabric data
* 20 years of Landsat Mosaic's covering Australia (GA)
* 9", 3" and 1" DEMs
* ~900 gridded climate data sets
* 50 years of historical Average Maximum Temperature grids (annual and monthly)
* 10 years of Climate Projections grids - Average Maximum Temperature (annual and monthly)
* Historical meteorological observations data at ~30,000 stations.
Functionality includes seamless integration of:
* Web Mapping capabilities
* GIS type attribute searches
* GIS type spatial overlay functionality (e.g. point in poly, buffer etc)
* Business Intelligence reports:
* time series graphs from DB and WFS.
* time series graphs created by drilling down through historical and climate projections grids via WCS
* a range of observations data and data provenance related reports.
* A time series animation capability for viewing climate grids (via WMS)
I demonstrated the prototype to our peers at the international OGC Technical Committee meeting in Boulder in the US a few weeks ago. The approach that we took generated quite a bit of interest and a couple of invitations to present.
Like most organisations, we have funding issues and competing priorities. I don't anticipate that we will have an operational variant of this prototype available externally for a few years.
If you have read this far, you may be interested in accessing Climate data via Open Spatial Standards, and/or the prototype type of interface in the future. If that is the case, please contact me via email so that we can start building the Business Case for funding.
Also, if you are in Melbourne and would like a run through and live demo, let me know and I'll see what we can do (bearing in mind that we're in the middle of a major systems migration).

Looks like the sort of tool that should be coming out of the NCCARF program? What's the closest equivalent in Australia?

Re: [Aust-NZ] web mapping & climate change [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED] Many thanks for the URL Ross.
This is very relevant for us.
