NEESgrid Data – Technologies

Grid
– GRIDFTP is used for data transport
– Grid Web Services are used to insure security and
provide access control between systems over the
Internet – also provide for credential passthrough
– Grid credentials are used as part of login providing
a single sign-on framework

CHEF
– Provides a flexible mechanism for deploying GUI
tools like the data viewers and data browsers.

NEES Markup Language (NEESML)

Provides an RDF-like structure capable of
representing semantic information
– XML is the syntax which is used
– Logic is more “object oriented”
• Can define objects
• Can create objects
• Can reference objects
RDF/XML Versus NEESML

NEESml is topologically equivalent to RDF but more
straightforward to use
– A compromise between usability and functionality
– Focused on solving the problems of ingesting types and data
– rather than “cross-server ontology webs”
– Used to build a reference set of ingestion tools
– RDF is a moving target

Repository does not store either RDF or NEESML – It
is an relational database tuned to store “three-tuples”
There is a layer is where
we develop tools which
take advantage and
begin to depend on of
the “meaning” of the
data – where we begin to
depend on the meaning
of a second.

Strategies





Take Existing Data Models and Adopt
Build tools and data models at the same time
Find existing tools that produce types of data
we find interesting
Build meta data extractors for important file
formats
Build converters for things like Excel
Why start with the ORST Model?





It provides good coverage of a wellunderstood scope
It has consensus across multiple sites
A prototype toolset exists around the model
which is an important validation
http://nees.orst.edu/IT/data.model/
We can adopt the core elements and extend
as necessary

Go Forward – Data Models




documentation
Form core group between SI, ES, and CS to
push data model issues forward – once
groundwork is better defined – we can
disperse into distributed teams
Use experiment based deployment to help us
encounter new data needs over time
How to prioritize model
exploration and development

Focus on the following areas:
– Areas where we have or are building tools
– Areas where we already have incoming data in
some format
– Build the model through experiment based
deployment - solve real problems in an open way
and see if (with some adaptation) the solutions
apply more broadly (i.e. Minnesota )

NEESML
1 Introduction
NEESML is a means for populating a NEESgrid metadata repository with objects and
definitions of object types. It provides a syntax for defining object types and specifying
objects, the values of their properties, and the relationships between objects. The
NEESgrid metadata ingestion tool accepts NEESML files and uses them to populate a
repository with objects and type definitions, communicating with the repository with the
NEESgrid metadata service (NMDS) interface.
Table 1: Primitive types in NEESML

Description
string
Text
int
Integer
long
Long integer. Can exceed
the size of an integer.
double
date
Double precision floating
point number.
A moment in time,
represented as a date and
time stamp in UTC with
1ms resolution.
NEESML can be used to share type definitions and objects between repositories, and as
an interface between other applications and repositories, because applications can either
be written to read and write NEESML files, or can be augmented with translation utilities
that translate the data formats they can read or write to and/or from NEESML. Finally,
NEESML can be used to archive metadata to files.
Examples
“Hello, world.”
This
document is 493-2584x”
intended as a comprehensive reference manual for the NEESML
“BN#
language. It does not explain how to use NEESML to represent real-world objects, but
1.1 About this document
rather completely specifies the syntax and meaning of every NEESML construct. Using
this document, you will be able to write NEESML documents that conform to the proper
syntax, and will be able to understand syntax errors and other problems with nonconforming NEESML documents or document fragments.

Some NEESML-specific terminology is used in this document. The first time every such
term is used, it is italicized. Definitions of all special terms are given in the glossary in
section 7.

NEESML is a general-purpose metadata description language. Throughout this
document, examples are used that do not directly pertain to earthquake engineering. This
is done merely in the interest of simplicity. All the constructs used in the examples can be
applied to metadata describing earthquake engineering experiments and simulations.

NEESML documents are XML documents. There are some aspects of XML that
1.2 Some XML “gotchas”
constrain the syntax of NEESML documents in important ways:
2002-10-27
 XML element and attribute names are case-sensitive. “ID” is not equivalent to
“id”, and “MyTypeName” is not equivalent to “mytypename”.
15:40:32.048
 Namespaces, if they are used as relation ID’s or the ID’s of types for which
objects are created, must be declared in an enclosing element.
1969-01-12
 Some characters are not allowed in element names. It is common practice to only
00:03:48.774
use alphabetic characters and dashes. Colons and other punctuation are not
allowed.
For details on XML syntax, consult the XML specification (Bray, Paoli, SperbergMcQueen & Maler, 2000) or a good XML reference or tutorial.

We may be able to get a patch out to switch this to NEESml and provide a simple entry tool.
