Chilean Web Services and AIP- Capacity Building activity related to Societal Benefit Areas

Lucia Lovison-Golob, AIP - Capacity Building Leader, Geospatial Director Afriterra Foundation

First, the author describes the capacity building effort of technical experts within GEO-Chile and GEO program and second the capacity building effort of the AIP- Working Group. During the first part, it will be shown how people and agencies collaborate within Chile and internationally, while supporting the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI). As examples, it is described the multi-year Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP) project for disasters management in Chile. The goals of this project are both to exchange data and services through interoperable interfaces, to test geospatial components and services within GCI and to make suggestions during an emergency event. Geospatial standards are adopted such as the Catalog Service of the Web (CSW) by IDE-SNIT (Chile), and the GEO Discovery and Access Broker (GEODAB) by CNR (Italy) as well as collaboration are supported between Servicio Aerofotogramétrico de la Fuerza Aera de Chile (SAF) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). For the year 2015, five use cases scenarios related to regions with earthquake, tsunamis risk management (Talcahuano and Iquique), areas interested by volcanic activity (Copahue and Villarrica), and wild fires (Valparaiso) are discussed. The second part focuses on the capacity building effort within the architecture implementation project past and future.
