The ESIP Discovery cluster has made significant contributions in the field of earth data discovery with their championing of Open Search and the provision of Best Practices and Validators for that protocol. Organizations like CEOS, CNES and OGC have taken note and provided compatible directions. In this session we will do the following, Recap the state of Open Search with respect to ESIP Report on the state of our community outreach with Open Search implementations, where we assist organizations in making their APIs compliant and, consequently, more interoperable. Talk about where we will go next OPeNDAP Best Practices - you've discovered your data, now what are you going to do with it Catalog Service for the Web (CSW) - although ESIP Discovery recommends using Open Search for discovery we understand that many organizations are tied to CSW. So let's get them working the best they can.

Now days organizations are making available data (e.g. vector data, rasters) via web services, that follow open standards and are easier to integrate with other data. Validation of these services is important to guarantee that clients (e.g. web portals, mobile applications) can properly discover and download the data that a user needs. Validation can also serve as curation process to improve discovery on registries [1][2] or for certification purposes [3]. This session will provide an overview and a demo of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Validation tools. The participants will understand how to invoke a test and install the tools in their own environment. The validation tools are used to test servers, data and clients. The tests can be customized to not only test implementations against OGC standards but also community profiles. The validation engine and the tests are available as open source in GitHub.
