The problem of data integration can be looked at from several angles: technologies, workflows, standards, etc. Within the context of each viewing angle a diagram can be drawn at varying levels of detail focusing on any component of the data integration technology stack.
This "technology map" uses the data management/integration technology elements, servers, services, and data as grouping themes. It attempts to give an overview of the entire existing data integration technology stack. These items are intended to be top levels of organization for documentation developed by the TSWG and collaborators. These will each be a link to a sub-wiki space containing other pages and content about the items.
Collaboration Tools: Listing and evaluation of a number of things like wikis that are used to help geographically distributed groups of people have conversations and share ideas.
Examples of Integration: Information on the use of one or more of the technology components listed below within a single system.
Technology Components: Some of the major building blocks that the TSWG sees as being useful for making data and services readily usable to scientists and the public in a networked environment.
Sub-pages discussing individual components are being added--if you know about one, please add to a pre-existing page or create a new one!
