Science gateways are collaborative software environments designed to enable community-driven development and use of cyberinfrastructure services, software tools, applications, and data through common interfaces, typically an online portal, customized to meet the needs of individual communities [1]. By abstracting the assemblage of cyberinfrastructure needed by the research communities and democratizing access to high-end computational resources, science gateways (e.g. those on XSEDE) provide a shared problem-solving environment and promote collaborations among community users. The integration work presented here represents a cutting-edge approach to coupling two independent geospatial software environments developed separately, namely CyberGIS [2] and OpenTopography [3].
