Robodata Archive for Visualizing CRUSER Unmanned System Field Experimentation [video]
MetadataShow full item record
NPS performs many experiments with unmanned systems but few projects are able record results in a systematic reusable way. The robodata.nps.edu project is designed to establish NPS data-collection capabilities for a wide variety of unmanned system experiments. Utilizing open assets in a repeatable, sustainable way can build an institutional archive of worthy examples that is easy to adopt. Initial implementation efforts are establishing NPS data-collection capabilities for unmanned system experiments. Comprehensive display of results is performed using the Spatio-Temporal Oceanographic Query System (STOQS) from Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), an open-source data server that provides comprehensive tools for archiving, analyzing and visualizing data from a wide range of scientific missions. Fully open and extendable, STOQS includes an effective query interface, Web-based plots, dataset retrieval, and playback for scientific visualization using the X3D Graphics International Standard. Data is crucial, but only part of the challenge. Metadata is about forms of data relating to other data. For example, metadata can provide a variety of information regarding a document such as author, date revised, relevant key words, etc. Metadata is crucially important for describing collected data, supporting search, and enabling mashups to create new information. The following metadata is needed for any meaningful mission data collection effort: 1) Mission information. Who, what, when, where, why and how; 2) Telemetry datasets. The raw data, as collected or in compressed form: 3) Telemetry metadata. Precise details are needed for each sensor measurement including units, configuration, etc; 3) Images and captions. What does each picture mean? Tell the viewer what it means; 4) Video recordings. Short clips or links are accepted. Include start/stop times, location (or correlation to robot-location track), etc. Current work includes definition of a series of survey forms to facilitate data collection and metadata archiving by robot operators. We are further able to export database information as precise metadata terms to produce search-accessible catalog entries for the Calhoun Institutional Archive at NPS Dudley Knox Library. Once procedures and operational processes are in production and tested satisfactorily, we are next looking at publishing resource catalog metadata as part of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) collections.
