For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth observation data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth observations more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and the public. The theme of the meeting is Putting Data to Work: Building Public-Private Partnerships to Increase Resilience & Enhance the Socioeconomic Value of Data.

COVID-19 has turned our worlds upside down, impacting our lives, our businesses and the economy in significant ways. Emergency response has had to adapt rapidly to an unseen and deadly virus. Decisions are being driven, mostly by data and that data needs to be trusted. This session will focus on identifying how the disaster response community trusts data. The All Hazards Consortium and ESIP have come up with Operational Readiness Levels (ORL) for trusted data and this is being embraced by private and public sector organizations and agencies.

We will focus our meeting on how public-private partnerships accelerate decision making and how the identification of trusted data, and the sharing of that data, leads to rapid data-driven decision making across multiple sectors. This can save lives. We are building on the ESIP winter meeting theme of “Putting Data to Work” and our session mapping data ORLs to FEMA Community Lifelines. In this session we will continue to encourage data producers, providers and users to work with us in the Disaster Lifecyle Cluster so we can refine our definitions of trusted data and ORLs.

Part 1 invites presentations on COVID-19 trusted data access and sharing from people who can discuss the challenges and goals for data sharing.

Part 2 explores challenges in providing trusted data and technology throughout the COVID-19 response teams from decision makers to community engagement.
