Demonstration 1 - Access to the on-line resources of the US National Library of Medicine leader - Hemant Shah, M.D. Senior Research Medical Informatician at the Henry Ford Health System The National Library of Medicine (NLM) of the USA is an organization that develops valuable technology and content to empower biomedical investigators in their research and to facilitate adoption of the research findings into clinical practice and products. The resources and services offered by NLM are many and can be freely accessed by nearly everyone in the world. This demonstration will cover several well known and some lesser known offerings of NLM. The resources covered will include, MedLine/PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, WebMIRS, NLM Gateway, Entrez, MESH, RxNorm etc. An overview of these resources will be followed by demo of the features of these tools to exploit them for your purposes. We will also address how your institution can integrate some of these with your own software systems or develop completely new tools using them.

Demonstration 2 - Effective transfer of large earth observation satellite images from the USA to India leader - Dr Chris Elvidge, National Geophysical Data Center, NOAA The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center serves as one of two long term archive facilities for NOAA's satellite data. The archive and access system is known as CLASS (Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System). Current data holdings include the data from NOAA's Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES). The polar orbiting satellites collect data worldwide with both daytime and nighttime overpasses. The geostationary satellites collect frequent data, but at coarser spatial resolution than the polar satellite sensors and with coverage only of a single hemisphere. In 2011 NOAA and NASA will begin a new polar satellite series with the launch of the NPP satellites, which will produce more than two terabytes of data and products per day, a substantial increase over the current POES and GOES. Later, advances in the geostationary satellite sensors will yield a similar increase in data volumes. In this demo we focus on the download of U.S. satellite images covering India. This will include data from NOAA's Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and the U.S. Air Force Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Operational Linescan System (OLS). In addition, we will report download time results for MODIS 5 minute granules (~150 MB) from several sites in India.
