Dietmar's group are keen to consume WFSs in the app.  The problem is 
getting stable, persistent, reliable, consistent WFS up and running from 
the data providers within organisation's IT environments.

It has taken 3 years of AuScope funding to get EarthResourceML WFS up and 
yet to date we only have 2 services live from the data custodians 
production databases, 3 remotely hosted services (all to be moved to data 
custodian services by July 2011) and 2 still negotiating with their IT 
groups (expected to be live by end 2011).

This with a stable model (EarthResourceML 1.1), external funding and 
developers (AuScope) and Geological Survey Director's support.  Apart from 
the GeoSciML Testbed involvement (GA and GSV) none of the surveys have 
established GeologicUnit , Fault or Contact WFS.

As for Geochronology, we still don't have a stable model. 

Yes I think GPlates is a great driver for establishing these services. 
However, overcoming each organisations IT hurdles is extremely difficult 
and time-consuming. It does mean that we have to stabilise GeoSciML 
development so that applications like GPlates can be modified to consume 
the services knowing they won't have to keep tinkering due to the services 
changing. Unfortunately AuScope funding finishes in June, otherwise it 
would have been a great opportunity to fund GPlates consumption of the 
various WFSs.

Can we make this into the killer app we need ?

GPlates is one of the main drivers for trying to get an Australian 
geochronology WFS up and running. 

GPlates functionality currently displays a point in space and time as the 
plate reconstruction is run through time. At the moment Dietmar's groups 
has to manually reformat and load geochronology data from wherever they 
can get it, and update manually as new data becomes available. 

Combining geology, faults mineral occurrence and geochronology WFS data in 
a an application that displays the plate movement through time would be 
even more awesome!

Hi Eric,



We at GA are working with Dietmar Muller's team at Sydney University with 
the GPlates application, mainly by providing test datasets and GeoSciML 
web services for them to import into GPlates.



Cheers,

Ollie

There is a paper in press in Computer & Geosciences :
