[ESIP-all] ESIP Drupal Working Group Demo Wednesday

Hello ESIPers... we have a great demo on Wednesday, October 17 at 11am PT,
2pm ET.

Please mark your calendars!

ROSE-MARIE GONZALES from JPL/Raytheon will demo the work they did to build
the Earth Data Federated Content Tool in Drupal.

Here is some background:
The Earth Data Federated Content Tool (FCT) supports sharing and re-use of
Earth Data content; sharing of
Earthdata.nasa.gov<http://earthdata.nasa.gov/> content
with the DAACs, sharing of DAACs content with Earth Data and sharing of
content from DAAC to DAACs.

The Earth Data FCT allows existing content to remain at the original
location while at the same time provides a unified solution for managing
Earth Data content. It allows participating entities to retain a large
measure of autonomy over the content they make available, as well as the
content they choose to re-use. Finally, the FCT provides a common interface
for all producers and consumers of Earth Data content.
The Earth Data FCT uses Really Simple Syndication (RSS) content syndication
tool (one-to-many), and augments the functionality to create federated
content tool (many-to-many). This approach allows independent entities to
work together exchanging content in a fully interoperable fashion and
provides a unified solution for managing Earth Data science content across

We will also be talking about Drupal activities for the Winter Meeting...
