Plotting the GlueSiteLocation

I plotted the GlueSiteLocation as advertised in the GlueSites a few days ago. In fact a quick look over the results shows that the field is filled in well in all but a few cases. Most of the plots are centered on a country with a few "World" ones showing everything. Chris and Steve as a result have an action to fix their location some time whenever they fancy it:-)

Filling in the GlueSite

The last few days I have again wanted to resolve a given site name as belonging to an EGEE ROC. There are no public interfaces to resolve something that would be useful to so many people including GGUS, the GridPP Real Time Monitor, Operations, Accounting and even the Managers. So I have created a review and proposal to fill the GlueSite object in with well defined information. I have spoken to the WLCG coordinators and will follow up in time with ROC managers, GGUS, OSG the WLCG monitoring working group and any one else I can think of who might be interested. Eventually when something
settles down I'll push it through EGEE deployment and YAIM and onto the sites.
