Resum:

The efficient transmission of large resolution images is a key aspect in many applications to minimize the transmission costs and to enhance the browsing experience. Among the currently available standards for the coding and transmission of imagery, JPEG2000 excels for its superior coding performance and advanced capabilities. The JPEG2000 Interactive Protocol (JPIP) minimizes the amount of information transmitted in a client-server scenario. Nonetheless, JPIP does not provide mechanisms to re-use data already delivered to clients browsing the same image within a local network. Common HTTP proxy servers are not able to understand the syntax of JPIP, thus specialized JPIP proxy servers are put in practice. This work improves the capabilities of traditional JPIP proxy servers by means of a user-navigation model that, together with prefetching strategies, allows the server to anticipate (potential) future requests of clients. Experimental evidence indicates that the introduction of the navigational model into a JPIP proxy server enhances the browsing experience notably. © 2012 IEEE.

Resum:

The GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI) provides a Clearinghouse (the GEOSS registry and metadata catalogue) and a GEOPortal to discover and visualize EO data in an integrated, standardized and interactive way, as well as broadly use it by the scientific community when dealing with representation and modeling of Earth Systems. EO data sources are ideally elaborated following quality assessment procedures, resulting in quality estimates and other related indicators. The objective of this indicators is to allow users deciding about data fitness for a purpose, but in practice systems providing methods to distribute, show and exploit this producer quality information in a standard and interoperable way are rarely used. This work aims to extract information about data quality from GCI metadata and analyze the obtained results. Additionally, an XML specific tool is able to quick and visually punctuating the metadata that refers to quality. © 2012 IEEE.
