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.

Usage-Driven Data Discovery Hackfest Part 1

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
What if users could find Earth science data by starting with how they plan to use it? For instance: "I want to predict landslides: which datasets will help me do that?" This is the problem that the Discovery Cluster is currently addressing. This session will bring together coders, data and information curators, and end users to develop simple prototypes to explore ways in which intended data usage can lead directly to finding the most useful datasets. Bring your own use case or work on one of the Cluster's use cases. Bring your own usage-data relationships, or work with the Cluster's datasets.

PLEASE SIGN UP HERE FOR ONE OF THREE TEAMS BEFORE (so we can optimize your Hackfest experience)

Also, the detailed agenda is online HERE.

  • Three successful implementations of usage-based discovery indicates the paradigm is feasible (though scalability requires further work).
  • UX work showed that the most appropriate target user may not be the end-user of an application, but rather the data/application wrangler that supplies the end user.
  • Manual foraging for application-dataset relationships was hard: better practices of data citation by applications would make this easier and more tractable to automation.
