Chesapeake Bay Environmental Observatory

The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Observatory (CBEO) project was an NSF-funded effort focused on exploring, presenting, analyzing and integrating environmental data related to the Chesapeake Bay. As part of this project, lab members developed a CBEO portal that supported data publication by project members, data discovery, access, visualization and integration. The CBEO portal inherited some tools developed initially within the GEON project, and added several new portal components, including a Data Access System for Hydrology (DASH) tuned to the Cheaspeake Bay Area, a semantics-based discovery system called Hydroseek, and an online spatiao-temporal interpolation module developed for the Chesapeake data.

The main CBEO project web site was hosted by the Chesapeake Community Modeling Program.
