Geoconnex: A Community Index for Water Data
These webinar slides were presented during an IoW Webinar held on December 6, 2022, and provide a detailed overview and update for general audiences on the Internet of Water’s flagship technology, Geoconnex. When completed, this geospatial index will be capable of searching and retrieving any water metadata published in the United States, and ultimately North America and beyond. Geoconnex relies on a distributed linked data system. Such systems are foundational elements of modern internet search technology, allowing for the search and retrieval of millions of records in an instant. Such a linked data system does not yet exist for water data but has been an aspiration of the water data informatics community for some years, and the subject of significant research to date. This webinar will provide visualizations of Geoconnex (e.g., what does it do, how does it work), including visualizations of the current contents and anticipated growth in scope and scale of the index this year.
