FY2009-FY2014 (the first term)

  We developed the metadata database that enables cross-search of observational data distributed across some universities and institutes, and the analysis software that can handle these data in an integrated fashion. We demonstrated how these tools are useful for the upper atmospheric science, and opened various data accumulated in the IUGONET members to public. We regularly held data analysis workshops using our tools to construct the domestic and international networks for the upper atmospheric science.


  We reviewed the metadata database and data analysis software developed in the first term and designed new metadata database. We planned to add a part of functions of the data analysis software to the metadata database to change it from the information providing system to more practical system.


  We developed a new metadata database, "IUGONET Type-A", which provides one-stop web service to search data, get the information of data, simply analyze data, and conduct users to the detailed analysis. We started up the project for standardizing the framework of the IUGONET products to be applied to other fields.


  We collaborate positively with the other projects in the nearby field, exemplified by the ERG mission. We give high priority to outreach activity to distribute internationally our products and nurture human resources in the field of Solar Terrestrial Physics. We release IUWAF (IUGONET Universal Web Application Framework) produced by the standardization project and collaborate with some projects in the different field.


  We create a community for the standardization activity and help some projects to open their data to public. In particular, we apply IUWAF to PANSY radar data and meteorological data in the nearby fields and further to data in the other fields, such as meteorites and biological specimen. We continue the international outreach to promote the open data, in particular, in the Asia and Africa regions and to construct international network. We register data from the global ground-based observation networks to our system and collaborate more with the neighboring projects.


  We aim to develop high-functioning tools to effectively analyze data obtained by the Equatorial MU radar. We provide users with the opportunity to comprehensively analyze data obtained by the international collaboration, in particular, with Asia-Oceania-Africa region. We apply IUWAF to different fields including literature.


  We plan to develop the tool that enables effective analysis of massive data obtained by the EISCA_3D radar. We contribute to the study of coupling processes in solar-terrestrial system by providing the integrated analysis tools that can handle global and various kinds of data. Furthermore, we apply IUWAF to other different fields in order to contribute to open data and open science and create new interdisciplinary fields.
