Featured Projects


DBOWLizer

DBOWLizer is a novel framework for the automatic creation/extraction of expressive ontologies from (normalized) relational databases. This approach extracts and accurately represents the information found in a database by examining its composition. We anticipate that this work will help to expose the rich content currently stored in thousands of databases in a way that users, in particular scientists, can be more effective in retrieving information that supports their scientific endeavours.

Water Models

The Sustainable Water Resources project is funded by the USDA under Grant No. 2015-68007-23130 to work with regional stakeholders developing a shared understanding of future scenarios of water availability and use in the Middle Rio Grande valley of southern New Mexico, west Texas, and northern Chihuahua.

ELSEWeb

The Earth, Life and Semantic Web (ELSeWeb) project integrates the NASA-funded Earth Data Analysis Center with an analytical Web Service platform, Lifemapper, which models potential future species distributions under scenarios of climate change. The integrated system provides climate change impact scientists streamlined mechanisms for discovering, accessing, understanding, and using Earth observation data to model future species projection scenarios.
