2 System Context
As seen in Figure 1, the System facilitates the uploading, integration and submission of
geothermal data.
The System also checks the integrity of the data. The System handles the submission of
the meta-data records to the GTDA system, and transmits instances of the geothermal
data, when requested. Also, the System provides a mechanism to handle maintenance
issues relating to the operation of the system.

3 Description of Individual User Screens
In the following sections we outline the functionality of the individual screens.
3.1 Accessing Data
The SMU Node provides two ways to access the data it contains: interactively via the
map, or non-interactively by downloading the data in bulk. The login screen of the application provides a description of how to access the data via download. This avenue of
access does not require the user to login. Interactive access, on the other hand does require the user to login, even if it is as a visitor. Logging in is described in the next section
3.2 Login Screen
The Login Screen allows users to request access to the system. In the following you find a
Screenshot of the Login Screen.
Figure 2: Login Screen (http://geothermal.smu.edu).
Users wishing only to view the information and not to add or change it can log in anonymously.
This can be done by opening the Visitor Panel and clicking on the “Login as Visitor” button.
Remark: it might be necessary to click on the “Login” button several times if at first click the system seems unresponsive.

The following screenshot shows the login screen with the guest login panel open:
Figure 3:GTDA Login screen for visitors (right-hand side of http://geothermal.smu.edu/)
Users with contribution rights need to have SMU node credentials. They can use the ‘SMU Node
Login’ Panel, shown below.

Figure 4: Login panel for users with SMU Node credentials (right-hand side of
http://geothermal.smu.edu/)
Users requiring login credentials and privileges to upload and publish data can request these
from an administrator of the system by contacting …
3.3 Map Search Page
Upon login, the user is presented with the map search screen:
last saved: Monday, February 10, 2014

Figure 5: Map Search Screen.
The map shows the locations of wells about which the system has information. As can be seen in
several areas (especially Texas), the map is densely populated with wells. The control buttons on
the upper left corner of the map allow for panning and zooming into specific map regions.
Remark: Due to the large amount of data we recommend giving the system time to zoom into
the region of interest.
3.3.1 Filtering
Using the filter panel on the left hand side the user can filter the found results. Enter and/or selecting search criteria and clicking the “Filter” button will cause the system to redraw the map.
To clear the search results click the “Reset” button. Note that filtering does not automatically
take place when the user has made a change to the search criteria. Rather, the user must click
the “Filter” button for any changes in search criteria to take effect. Similarly, once the search
criteria are reset the “Filter” button must be clicked to make the map reflect that no points are
being filtered out.
The user can restrict the number of found results to specific states and counties. These widgets
provide a drop-down selector. Multiple states and counties may be selected. Note that the
8
last saved: Monday, February 10, 2014
county selector is disabled unless at least one state is selected. Furthermore, only the counties
of the selected states are listed in the county selector.
It is also possible to select a specific well by providing its hole name. You need not provide the
exact name of a hole. For the search text you enter, the system will place points on the map for
which the search text occurs within any of the fields “hole name”, “API”, or “other location
name”.
It is also possible to select wells that have a Measured Maximum Temperature that is at least or
at most a certain value. Simply select either “>=” or “<=” from the drop down menu, enter the
value to compare against, and click the “Filter” button. The same applies to the Depth of the
Well as a filter criterion.
Since the system does not contain full data for every well (it depends on the uploaded data) one
can also filter out wells for which no depth or temperature value was provided.
The filter panel also allows for filtering for wells for which the system has data from a specific
data contributor. The node contains data from the following data providers:
BEG, University of Texas, Austin
Cornell Energy Institute
MLKay Technologies
SMU Geothermal Laboratory
Texas Tech University
University of North Dakota
Finally it is also possible to select those wells for which specific information types are available.
The system allows for filtering for the following data types:
BHT Measurements
Thermal Conductivity
Heat Flow
TD Curves
3.3.2 Accessing Data
As described before, each red dot on the map represents a well about which the system provides information. After zooming into a specific region and filtering the wells of interest the user
usually wants to access data about chosen wells. Data of a single well, as well as a list of resources related to that well can be obtained by clicking the point on the map. Alternately, a table of data for a given region can be obtained by selecting a region on the map. These two
methods are described below.
When the user clicks on a point on the map, the system generates a small pop-up balloon at that
point. The following Screenshot shows the balloon info of an individual well.

Figure 6: Screenshot of the system showing ballon info of one individual well.
The balloon provides summary information about the well at that location. The balloon also includes a link. By clicking the link the well’s details page is opened in a new tab or window. The
following Screenshot shows the Details Page for one well.

Figure 7: Screenshot of the Well Details Page.
Note that the link can be bookmarked and/or shared and is accessible directly without logging
into the system.
It is also possible to access the data about a certain area on the map in a tabular form.
Note: Use this feature with caution! When choosing a large area on the map or an area with
many wells it takes very long to create the results. We recommend to first zoom into a specific
region of interest, and then mark a small area.
Marking areas is done by pressing the Shift button and selecting the area of interest using the
mouse (i.e. the user needs to press the shift button and the primary mouse button at the same
time and then drag to draw a bounding box around a specific region on the map). Upon releasing the mouse button a window pops up that contains summary data available for the wells
within the selected region. The data can be browsed in the window or downloaded as a CSV file.
In order to download the data as a CSV file the user must first provide a file name and then
press the ‘Export to CSV’ button. A new window pops up that allows for selecting which data
one wants to download. When pressing the ‘OK’ button a set of CSV files is generated and compressed into a zip file. Depending on the size of the selected area this may take a long time.

Once the zipped package is generated a download window pops up and the file is automatically
downloaded into the download folder of the user’s PC.
The following Screenshot provides an overview:
Figure 8: Screenshot of the data details view.
Remark: The popup windows must be closed using the ‘cross’ at the upper right corner of the
popup window.
3.4 Publications Catalog
The publications Catalog view allows users to browse through the uploaded publications. In order to do so the user simply enters a search term in the search field and then clicks the search
button (or presses the “enter” key on the keyboard.) The entered keywords are searched within
the bibliographic metadata as well as in the full-text index of the catalog.
If a hyperlink for details of the bibliographic entry is available the user can click on the title of a
found entry. This will open a new browser tab that is redirected to that hyperlink.
The following Screenshot shows the ‘Publications Catalog’ View:

Figure 9: Screenshot of the publications catalog view.
3.5 Histograms
The histogram view allows for a rapid overview of the value distribution for specific data fields. The selector in the upper left corner enables the user to select the category of
data to be reviewed in the histogram. For example the user may choose to review data of
the category ‘borehole temperature measurements’ (abbreviated as bht-measurements).
Within the chosen category the user next chooses the Field to be reviewed. For example
the user may choose to review the field containing the corrected borehole temperature
measurements called ‘bht_corrected’.
Upon clicking on the “View Histogram” button the distribution of values is shown on
the screen. The two fields ‘Min Range’ and ‘Max Range’ are automatically filled with the
corresponding value from the chosen data field. The range values can be modified and
upon pressing on the ‘Apply Range’ button the chosen ranges are applied. By pressing
the ‘Full Range’ button the view resets to the full range of the data.
Finally, the vertical scrollbar on the right hand side allows for choosing the number of
bins the histogram is constructed of.
The following Screenshot shows a histogram for corrected borehole temperatures:

Figure 10: Screenshot of the Histogram View.
Clicking on a bar once will show, in a grid below the histogram, the list of wells that make up the
data represented by that bar. You can change the column upon which the list os sorted by clicking on the column header. You can also download the full list as CSV using the “Download as
CSV” button to the upper right of the grid.
3.6 User Management
This page is only available for users with administrator privileges. It consists of two sub-pages:
Sub-page number one is the user management page and sub-page number two is the Account
Request Page. The first page enables the administrator to manage the roles of the users in the
system, reset there password and to deactivate and delete them.
The following Screenshot shows the user management page:

The additional tabs “OpenId” allows to associate certain openId’s with the user. The tab “Password” allows the administrator to reset the user’s password.
3.7 Submit Datasets
Users with “Data_Submitter” privileges can submit data sets to the system.
Depending on the role users may upload the data of the type of the contributing institutes. Since each institute provides the data in its own format a different upload mechanism applies.
The following screenshot shows the heat flow file upload for the institute SMU:

Figure 12: Screenshot of the Upload Page for SMU Heatflow Data.
As can be seen the system asks for 4 individual files that have to be uploaded. Once the
files have been uploaded the user can change to the Job Status tab. In this tab the user
can monitor the progress of the upload process. When the job of uploading data is completed successfully the “Staged” message shows up. Failures are signaled as well and
when clicking on the failure message the user gets some hints what has been wrong with
the uploaded data.
The following screenshot shows the job status page for the SMU data upload.

Figure 13: Screenshot of the job status tab.
Once data has been staged the user can choose the Review tab to check the uploaded
data using histograms. The histogram functionality is similar to the histogram of the histogram tab. The following figure shows a screenshot for reviewing using histograms:

Figure 14: Screenshot of the data review panel.
Once satisfied with the data quality the user may publish the staged data. This is done
by pressing the “Publish Dataset” button.
Note that in order to publish successfully, all three data sets for a given state must be
staged.
Pressing the publishing button accomplishes the following:
The data is aggregated along with all the already public data in the system. This
includes incorporating this data into the appropriate AASG content modelcompliant data sets.
The catalog entry is updated based on any changes you made to the "Distributor"
details when you uploaded the data set, making it easy for other services to find
and use your data from this site.
If the uploaded data is from Texas Tech the existing table containing only the
Texas Tech University data set is updated.
The publishing process will take some time. Once the "Job Status" tab indicates it is
complete, the data will appear on the map, and the web map service and web feature
services will provide the newly updated data to anyone requesting it.

3.7.1 Publish dialog (activated when the publish button is clicked)
The publishing process has begun. The process will take some time to complete. See the
"Job Status" tab to see whether it has completed successfully. If it has not, then the details of the failure will be presented there.
3.8 Submit Related Resources
The last screen provided by the system is the “Upload for Related Resources”.
The Bibliography Upload tab allows you to upload and update bibliography details for
publications you are about to upload (To upload publications, see the "Publication submission" menu item of the "Submit Related Resources" menu.).
Uploading publications and their bibliographic data are separated into two distinct
steps: Step 1 is to upload the bibliographic information and step 2 is to upload the documents. They must be executed in this order.
It is assumed that there is not a document to be uploaded for every bibliographic entry
but there is a bibliographic entry for every uploaded document.
The following two sections describe the two steps for uploading publications.
3.8.1 Bibliography Upload
To upload bibliographic data, use the "UNIVERSAL BIBLIOGRAPHY" item in the "Bibliography" pull-down menu, and provide an index.csv file.
Use the http://geothermal.smu.edu/static/manual/universal_bibliography.csv to help
you arrange your data so that it will be import properly. The following aspects are important:
The combination of the fields “source” and “source_number” must be unique. The
source number must be a number, not a string. We recommend to not do partial uploads
but always a complete upload per source organization.
The following figure shows a screenshot of the upload page.

Figure 15: Screenshot of the Upload Mechanism.
For GRC, the bibliographic data should be delivered as a zipped Microsoft Access Database (MDB file).
The status of the upload process can be reviewed by clicking on the job status page:

3.8.2 Publications Upload Page
Once the bibliography is successfully processed, proceed to the publication submission
page. The following Screenshot shows the publications upload page.

Figure 17: Publications Upload Page.
Publications are uploaded as zip files containing the publications as PDF. The ZIP file
shall contain either or both of the following folders:
SOURCE_Pubs_OK_to_distribute (example: SMU_Pubs_OK_to_distribute)
SOURCE_Pubs_NOT_OK_to_distribute (example:
SMU_Pubs_NOT_OK_to_distribute)
The first folder may contain publications that are ok to publish and the second may contain publications that must not be published.
Again, click on the job tab to review the status of the upload process:

Figure 18: Job Status Page for the publications Upload Process.
3.8.3 Related Resources Submission
You can indicate the specific type of the resource (well log, well hog header, map, publication, comment, or field note) in the index.csv which must accompany the re-sources in
the ZIP archive.
Once the upload is complete and the resources are linked to the associated sites, you
should be able to find them under on the sites' well details pages under the appropriate
section. The well details pages are accessible via the Map search, and via the histogram
table.
On this screen you can upload various types of related resources. Related resources are
items -- such as well logs, well hog headers, maps, publications, comments and field
notes -- that are to be associated with one or more surface sites.
There are three "upload types" from which to choose. The upload type determines how
the system processes the uploaded resource. The following three types are available:

Related Resources
Field Notes
TD Curves
The following Screenshot shows the upload page for TD curves:

In the following we give some brief details on the three different types of related Resources that can be uploaded.
3.8.3.1 Related Resources
Use the "Related Resources" upload type to upload any type of related resource. This
includes well logs, well hog headers, maps, publications, and comments. It also includes
field notes for which the title of the document DOES NOT begin with the name of the
site to which it is to be associated.
3.8.3.2 Field Notes
Use the "Field Notes" upload type only when each individual field note file in the ZIP
archive is named with the first eight characters indicating the site to which it is to be associated.
3.8.3.3 TD Curves
Use the "TD Curves" upload type when uploading temperature depth curves. Uploading via this type allows the system to process the TD data so that it can be rendered
as a chart on the surface site's well details page.
