Data Album technology provides the automatic aggregation of data and information from multiple resources for specified events, such as hurricanes and other severe weather anomalies. Albums are auto-generated by a reusable and scalable Knowledge Synthesis Engine, using domain knowledge encoded as ontologies that capture not what data and information resources are relevant, but also the semantic relationships between the components. Data Albums can be configured to automatically gather relevant data and information for case studies and climatology analysis, a job that would otherwise be tedious and time consuming. Resulting albums contain links to relevant data files (granules) from different instruments, tools and services for visualization and analysis, information about the event contained in news reports, images or videos to supplement research analysis and literature references.

Two implementations included albums for hurricanes and albums for daily severe weather events.
