Abstract:

The software design methodology discussed in this report is fundamental to Geospatial Analysis and Model Evaluation Software GAMES module development. This report describes methods for the development of Web-based applications for accessing, processing, and distributing observations and model simulation results. The primary components discussed in this report include data visualization using Google Earth, geographical analysis using ArcGIS components within an oceanographic framework, and executable scripts designed to access large databases and run user-specified analyses. These components are illustrated using local examples in conjunction with local GServer web server. An example is also given of accessing a global ocean model database and using the results to calculate model statistics and long-term trajectories for surface flotsam in the Pacific Ocean. The components described in this report can be used for either component-based software engineering CBSE or service-oriented software engineering SOSE designs. The resulting software is applicable to research and operational oceanography.
