Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
Web browsers are becoming increasingly capable as visualisation and analysis platforms
Lots of tools and libraries are built around images and “simple features”
–GeoJSON, KML, OpenLayers, Leaflet ...
•Formats and tools for scientific / meteorological data are not always web-friendly
–Complex, binary, desktop-oriented
–Large variety, usually community-specific
•=> Lots of people building ad-hoc solutions for web applications
•We want to bring scientific data within the reach of more Web and mobile app developers
–Web-friendly formats (i.e. JSON)
–More powerful and reusable visualisation/analysis tools
