Exploring Apache Tika's Translate API to Enable Linguistic Analysis of Scientific Metadata through Internationalizing NASA JPL’s Physical Oceanographic Data Active Archive Centre - Lewis McGibbney, The Apache Software Foundation

The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) is one of a number of NASA data archive’s containing many petabytes of oceanographic data. The primary goal (and challenge) for PO.DAAC is to enable provision, dissemination and availability of such data to the global scientific community at large. The driving justification behind the Internationalization Product Retrieval Services (iPReS) project is to address the growing requirement for PO.DAAC to provide high quality data products and services in a user-oriented manner by introducing language translation support for any data products retrieved from the data archive. Currently, this information is available only in English. This presentation will display how recent work undertaken on Apache Tika's Translate API has been leveraged to back the iPReS Service.
