SISS Workshop 5 - 6 March 2014



The Spatial Information Services Stack (SISS) is a suite of tools for spatial data interoperability. SISS uses OGC standards, GML application schema, modelling tools, vocabulary support services and registries. SISS has been deployed into multiple Australian Government agencies and research organisations. As SISS is built on open source technologies others are encouraged to use the stack and assist in its development.

SISS builds on existing technologies including GeoServer, FullMoon and GeoNetwork. The SISS team have made enhancements to support complex application schemas like GeoSciML and EarthResourceML, and quality improvements to raise the quality of service level and ensure stack completeness. For example, the AuScope portal uses GeoNetwork to discover services, and the application schemas supported by GeoServer are developed and tested with FullMoon. SISS provides a complete solution to develop, establish and maintain OGC standards compliant infrastructures.The development of SISS was originally funded by the Australian Government's NCRIS through the NeAT initiative, AuScope and the CSIRO. Since then, it has been supported by several organisations including CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia and ANDS.

Workshop Goal

The goal of the workshop is to demonstrate how communities can use SISS to provide transparent interoperable access to spatial data and knowledge. This is an overview and will give background into SISS and all the components of SISS. This is a technical-based workshop targeting deployers and developers of the services (will not cover the modelling aspects only provide reference to them).
