|Ontology-Enabled Polymer Nanocomposite Open Community Data Resource (Nanomine)|
Principal Investigator: Wei Chen, Linda Schadler, Deborah L. McGuinness, and Cate Brinson
Description: Our evolving semantics=driven data resource, named NanoMine, is an open access, user friendly, living, growing, data resource for the polymer nanocomposites community that is scalable and enables improved understanding of processing – structure - property relationships and thus facilitates faster nanocomposite design and insertion into advanced applications. By bringing together the data that is scattered throughout the public literature and private files and creating a protocol for recording and tagging data, this resource is an unprecedented compilation of information that is accessible. Tools within the resource allow users to visualize complex data, analyze images from their work, and design new polymer nanocomposites materials. For NanoMine to realize broad community acceptance and address scientific questions at the forefront of technology, it marries cutting edge cyber infrastructure with a robust set of data and tools.
|TW Website Project|
Description: A semantically-powered Tetherless World Website running in the Drupal CMS. This combines many web standard technologies, including RDF, SPARQL, XSLT, and XHTML.
Patrick West is a principal software engineer with the Tetherless World Constellation at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His current projects are focused on the semantic expression of data science concepts and relationships in various domains, including solar, upper atmosphere, ocean science [...]
