          At Partners for Our Children, we like making visualizations for people to read data. This parallel coordinates plot is a county comparison tool for child welfare measures, which allows you to see how different counties in Washington State stack up against one another. In this video tutorial, we address the following questions: 1. Why does this county comparison tool matter? 2. What is a parallel coordinates plot? 3. How do you use the parallel coordinates plot?

            La infraestructura europea ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System), tiene como misión proveer de mediciones de gases de efecto invernadero a largo plazo, lo que ha de permitir estudiar el estado actual y comportamiento futuro del ciclo global del carbono. En este contexto, geomati.co ha desarrollado un portal de búsqueda y descarga de datos que integra las mediciones realizadas en los ámbitos terrestre, marítimo y atmosférico, disciplinas que hasta ahora habían gestionado los datos de forma separada. El portal permite hacer búsquedas por múltiples ámbitos geográficos, por rango temporal, por texto libre o por un subconjunto de magnitudes, realizar vistas previas de los datos, y añadir los conjuntos de datos que se crean interesantes a un “carrito” de descargas. En el momento de realizar la descarga de una colección de datos, se le asignará un identificador universal que permitirá referenciarla en eventuales publicaciones, y repetir su descarga en el futuro (de modo que los experimentos publicados sean reproducibles). El portal se apoya en formatos abiertos de uso común en la comunidad científica, como el formato NetCDF para los datos, y en el perfil ISO de CSW, estándar de catalogación y búsqueda propio del ámbito geoespacial. El portal se ha desarrollado partiendo de componentes de software libre existentes, como Thredds Data Server, GeoNetwork Open Source y GeoExt, y su código y documentación quedarán publicados bajo una licencia libre para hacer posible su reutilización en otros proyectos.

              This tutorial video guides users through sibling placement as a measure of child well-being in the Data Portal. Though every case must be evaluated individually—and there are sometimes reasons that siblings should not be placed together—in general, the child welfare system seeks to keep sibling groups together. Sibling placement is an issue that Children’s Administration is currently exploring in greater depth than can be presented here.
