[MGI04-02] IUGONET activities for data sharing and interdisciplinary study
Keywords:IUGONET, upper atmosphere, data sharing, interdisciplinary study, metadata database, analysis software
The IUGONET (Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork) project started in FY2009 to share the upper atmosphere data and promote interdisciplinary studies. We opened many kinds of ground-based observational data to the public via internet. We have developed metadata database for cross-searching various kinds of the upper atmosphere data obtained by the IUGONET members and analysis software for visualizing and analyzing these data. SPASE (Space Physics Archive Search and Extract) metadata model was adopted as a basis of the IUGONET metadata format. The IUGONET provided a plug-in software for SPEDAS (Space Physics Environment Data Analysis Software), which is a grass-roots data analysis software based on IDL (Interactive Data Language) for space physics community and supports multiple missions. We hold meetings for users of these IUGONET data and tools about twice a year. In the presentation, we will introduce these IUGONET activities and new plan to improve the metadata database system.
