The CHARMe-Project stand at the Climate Symposium was neighbored by the EUMETSAT Climate Monitoring Satellite Application Facility (CM SAF) and the ESA . The location fitted very well to attract the members of the symposium during the coffee- and lunch breaks throughout the whole week. The CHARMe-projectteam has been represented by Rhona Phipps (UoR), Alan O’Neill (UoR), Phil Harwood (CGI) and Frank Kratzenstein (DWD). With the demo-version of the CHARMe-plugin at hand, a lot of detailed and interesting discussions on the use of commentary metadata and data models used in climate physics applications were initiated. Among others, questions like “What requirements from a data-provider point of view do we have to meet in order to use the CHARMe Service?” or “How can I run my own CHARMe Node?” or “How will the development of CHARMe be maintained after the projects’ end?” came up during those vivid conversations.
– registering at a CHARMe node and claiming for a CHARMe client id
– editing/adjusting the web page(s) to be CHARMe-enabled
– enjoying to annotate your datasets or to get your datasets annotated
One aspect was clear: scientists and dataprovider are looking forward to use CHARMe tools and are keen to see its launching.
