Executive Summary

The SISS registry service provides the integration between the constituted parts of SISS, providing links to related material and services. It provides a service register capability and a catalog for data products utilising open standards

The registry provides the links between the spatial data services, vocabulary services, and other available data. Geonetwork is the chosen implementation of a community registry for SISS. The registry provides the community agreed content, records for harvested services, and a central point of truth for services.

Project Overview

Problem Definition

The Registry will be used as a catalog for SISS services and associated data products. Within the given use cases, the registry will:
  • primarily be used to drive the available data in the portals and will be built on open standards (CS/W) to enable other clients and services to consume it.
  • The registry must be harvestable for linking with other registries (such as ANDS Research Data Australia)
  • Provide data product catalog capability
  • Provide service catalog capability

Key Objectives

The key objectives of this project are:
  • Support a registry implementation that can provide a catalog for services and data products using open standards (OGC, ISO, ANZLIC etc)
  • Deploy a registry which respective communities can use
  • Ensure the governance surrounding the registry and its use is established
  • Incorporate the registry as the glue between services in the respective clients

Project Scope

The PROJECT must include:
  • Using an ongoing community codebase
    • a client guide on consuming the records
    • deployment guide for others wishing to deploy the technology
  • Sustainable Registry

Key Features

The Project will deliver the following:

  • Open read access to the registry, with write access granted to selected community members
  • Registry Content
    • Harvested service records
    • Static records

  • AAF integration with supported write access

Out of Scope Key Features

The Project will not deliver the following:

Investments into Geonetwork will be to enable our registry requirements, not to further develop the base code. All efforts should be championed back into the community for ongoing maintainability.
