An International GIS and Data Curation dissemination framework using mobile devices: a Purdue-Aalto University example


The Purdue University Libraries in collaboration Aalto University Library presents a framework for an international method of bridging geospatial resources from one university campus to another. It should be noted that this is a small-scale framework based on open policy, open access and the Group of Earth Observation Systems of Systems (GEOSS) values of sharing data, resources and cyber-infrastructure capacity. This framework advocates that library services could pioneer knowledge dissemination efforts in a low cost manner utilizing mobile devices that can link international users with resources and advance international collaborative inter-librarian data support services that may incite cost reduction of operations while still broadening an international research mission of collaborating universities. Lastly, various forms of data curation may benefit from international collaboration, including such as educational data curation.
