Following recommendations included in the EarthCube Advisory Committee report delivered in March 2016 (the “Reverse Site Visit”), the National Science Foundation (NSF) has tasked the EarthCube Science Support Office (ESSO) with creating an architecture and implementation plan from the EarthCube architecture blueprint defined at the May 2016 Architectural Framework Workshop and in follow-on discussions at the 2016 EarthCube All Hands meeting.
Over the past few months, the Leadership Council-appointed Architecture Implementation Plan - Tiger Team (AIP-TT) provided advice and guidance to both the ESSO and the consultant group, Xentity, in the development of the EarthCube architecture and a corresponding implementation plan.
When EarthCube launched five years ago, the challenge was to establish the functional and technical scope and role of its implementation from an incredibly vast and complex set of scientific and technical needs, all within its capital and management limits. On this page you will find the resulting EarthCube Architecture Implementation Plan, Solution Architecture, and the Executive Summary of these efforts. The ESSO would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the AIP-TT and to Xentity for all their hard work on this project.
