Extending​ ​Gateways​ ​into​ ​the​ ​Field: Geospatial​ ​Extensions​ ​and​ ​Remote​ ​Data​ ​Services

Science gateways are generally accessed via web browsers from workstation or laptop computers. However, activities such as fieldwork and data collection have prompted an increasing call for new methods of access using a wide range of mobile and specialized devices. Our work to extend the HUBzero gateway framework with new access routes is described. Specifically, an emphasis is placed on enabling the flow of geospatial data and metadata between geo-enhanced HUBzero hubs and devices in the field.
