Objectives: To learn about the uncertainty enabled moel web (UncertWeb.org); publishing and connecting environmental models in the web.

Workshop moderator: E. Pebesma

Who is invited: Anyone interested in the model web.

Duration: Monday 10th of Sept

Location: IfGI, Muenster Germany 

UncertWeb develops the uncertainty enabled Model Web. The Model Web concept, formulated within the Global Earth Observation System of Systems activity envisages the integration of complex resources, such as data and models, to construct complex models, composed of chains of model and data components exposed as web services. This offers exciting opportunities for model development in a more loosely coupled, component oriented manner, encouraging sharing, re-use and easy access. However, when combining services of limited, or unknown, quality it is necessary to account for uncertainty if the outputs of the model web are to be used for rational decision making. UncertWeb develops mechanisms, standards, tools and case studies to enable uncertainty management in an interoperable model web context.

This workshop provides an overview on the Model Web and the UncertWeb project and will present some of the tools developed in the project including:

  • tools for web-based composition of model workflows
  • a Web client for the visualization of uncertain spatio-temporal data
  • sensitivity analysis and emulation
  • variogram elicitation
