⇒ Retro: Scientific Computing in the Open Web Platform
It has been far too long since I've written about my research, past or present, and I need to correct that. I've been rather silent over the past year or more — life has kept me busy with other things. As such, I have a backlog of information.
⇒ Astroinformatics on the Web
This is the second entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore how astronomers use the Web to share data, some of standards and technologies they have developed, and bit about the history of their development.
⇒ GeoJSON to the Rescue (or not)!
This is the fourth entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore GeoJSON as an alternate approach to geospatial scientific data.
⇒ Geospatial Data and KML
This is the third entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore KML and how can (or can't) be used to disseminate geospatial scientific data.
⇒ An Introduction to My PhD Research
This is the start of a series of journal entries about my recently completed dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Webat the [School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh](http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/informatics/) . As I wait to defend my dissertation (July?), I'm going to try to explain what I've been up to these past four years. My hope is that not only will people understand what I've been doing, but also it will help me find new ways of explaining it other than a rather long document that few will actually read cover-to-cover.
⇒ Scientific Measurements in Schema.org
The physical sciences use the idea of a [quantity](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantity#Quantity_in_physical_science) to measure the world around us. While that might seem simple, basing a measurement on a system of units that can be quantified, measured accurately, verified isn't exactly simple. Nevertheless, a great deal of time and effort has converged into the [International System of Units (SI)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_System_of_Units) .
