The California Climate Commons (CCC) and USGS Geo Data Portal (GDP) teams have collaborated to curate and host California and Great Basin Characterization Model (BCM) results. The CCC has successfully set up a web-server and installed needed software to serve these model results using data and web service standards that are compatible with the GDP. All raw monthly data has been transferred to the GDP team for processing and metadata development for hosting on the GDP. The GDP and CCC teams have made significant progress in converting raw BCM model data to archive formats and are moving forward as planned. The project experienced delays in transferring funds to the Point Blue Conservation Science team responsible for implementing CCC web capabilities and in receiving required raw data. Despite these setbacks, the project is on track to deliver web-service data access and processed summaries via web or script interfaces. These deliverables fit in the CDI Science Support Framework as a machine- to-machine integration between USGS and a partner organization, providing greatly improved access to raw and summarized version of a valuable dataset.
• Improved machine and human access to a pivotal USGS data product.
• Demonstrate the ability to integrate a partner organization’s web service data into the USGS’s Geo Data Portal data sharing framework.
• Establish a partnership of shared data and services between two climate change data systems and user communities.
• California Climate Commons data server accessible to the Geo Data Portal and other client software.
• California Climate Commons application leveraging Geo Data Portal processing to construct summary visualizations.
