SOCIB Data Discovery Service (SDDS)

SOCIB Data Center is working on building a data treatment architecture that covers all data stages. This architecture is composed by the following stages: acquisition, processing, quality controls, storage and distribution.

The SDDS is a layer of RESTful web services intended to provides information and data of SOCIB platforms. This layer is located at the distribution stage.

Note that only fixed stations and trajectories are available for now.

  • description: provides a the details of a specific media source.

  • url: apps.socib.es/DataDiscovery/media-source-info

  • endpoint request parameters:

    • id = the id of the requested media source. Can be retrieved from the List Media Sources service described above (is mandatory)
    • parameter = the standard name of the parameter that is provided (one of it) by each media source. Can be retrieved from the List Media Sources service described above (is mandatory)
  • response format: Media source info provides information to get access to the media products generated by a specific media source. Each response contains nested information describing it and contains the following attributes attributes:

    • standardName, the standard name of the parameter to be used as identification code
    • name, the name of the parameter to be used with displaying purposes
    • units, the units used to represented the values of this parameter
    • minLon, the smallest longitude of the bounding box that compounds the media source product. In EPSG:4326 projection
    • maxLon, the largest longitude of the bounding box that compounds the media source product. In EPSG:4326 projection
    • minLat, the smallest latitude of the bounding box that compounds the media source product. In EPSG:4326 projection
    • maxLat, the largest latitude of the bounding box that compounds the media source product. In EPSG:4326 projection
    • legendUrl, the legend url used to indicate the range of values associated to this parameter
    • mediaSourceParameterContents, list of parameter contents or variables provided by the parameter.

      Each media parameter content contains:

      • name, the name of the media resource
      • url, the url to the specific content
      • timestamp, the timestamp associated to the content
      • dateTime, the datetime associated to the content
