Natural Resource Workshop :  Grid-enabled IT framework for Earth System

 Organizers: Jai-Ho Oh, Byong-Lyol Lee, APAN/Earth System WG

Objective

This workshop is to demonstrate the potential of GRID enabled IT framework through facilitating meteorological R&D in initiating global collaborations for future Earth System development. We will discuss how to integrate existing national-level earth system development projects into global efforts to get greater benefits from this long-term commitment by sharing every resources available and experiences accumulated based on novel GRID technologies at global scale.

Natural Resource Workshop :  Wireless Sensor Networks and Their Applications in the Environment 
 Organizers: Masayuki Hirafuji,   Seishi Ninomiya,  APAN/Agriculture WG, Kento Aida,  APAN/Grid WG, Peter Arzberger,  PRAGMA

Objective

Wireless monitoring is one of most promising technologies to efficiently collect ground truth data as well as to detect signals about the environment not obtainable before. The concept of Sensor Grid accelerates the application of this technology to ground-based environment and field data monitoring.
This workshop will provide an opportunity to exchange the most up-to-date information about wireless sensor, networks, and their application and to discuss practical aspects and experiences on projects targeted to this kind of monitoring. This workshop is jointly organized by the APAN - Natural Resources Group, APAN/Agriculture-Working Group, APAN Grid-Working Group and PRAGMA.
We anticipate that a second meeting on this topic will take place at the next APAN meeting in August. In addition to the information exchange, we hope to have group discussion about the role of APAN in this area, relationships to other APAN working groups and partners, and activities that could take place between the January and July 2004 APAN meetings in Cairns, Australia.

Natural Resource Workshop :  Earth Observation Summit: Planning for Asia Pacific Implementation Activities
Organizers: Chris Elvidge,  APAN/Earth Observation WG

Objective

The session will begin with a review of the GEO Initiative (http://www.earthobservationsummit.gov/terms_of_reference.html), established at the 2003 Earth Observation Summit.  Presentations are invited for potential new EO-WG projects that would support the GEO Initiative by making use of APAN to distribute additional satellite earth observation data sets, collaboration on building regional archives, or improved interactive access to EO data or products.  The group will discuss the proposals and may add additional candidate EO-WG projects. Candidate projects will be reviewed and discussed in terms of feasibility and the level of commitment expressed by the participants to proceed.  At the end of the session one or more new EO-WG projects will be selected for implementation.
