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.

The meeting has now ended. Check out the ESIP Summer Meeting Highlights Webinar and learn how to access session materials at https://www.esipfed.org/collaboration-updates/esip-summer-meeting-2020-recap.

We welcome all to participate in this plenary, which is happening at a time that allows broader Australian participation than our Tuesday and Thursday plenaries.

Drones are now a common tool for scientific data collection. The past 5+ years has seen an enormous amount of work put into overcoming a wide range of challenges to drone use in multiple scientific disciplines. As the use of drones is maturing, researchers are looking for efficient paths to operational status. One such path available is that of borrowing and adapting. Borrowing: sensor use procedures, analytical methods, codebases, data, flight practice, legal frameworks, and infrastructure; that an otherwise completely separate scientific domain has already paid to create, and adapting and translating it to your own. For instance, work done to qualify a CO2 sensor on a drone by Atmospheric Scientists, had potential value to Agricultural Scientists, and vice versa.

Inspired by this potential for practical translation, and given the complexity of the scientific challenges currently being addressed by our community. This session will see a panel of expert Earth Science Technologists with a diverse range of experiences in navigating such translations; discuss their experiences with the ESIP community. The session will be run as a Fishbowl, with multiple opportunities for audience engagement and discussion, with the goal being to inspire new ideas that lead to actionable plans.
