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.

Recent advances in structured data on the web such as the Google data set search, W3C Data Exchange Working Group best practices, and ESIP's own Science-on-schema.org present great potential but can be daunting to take in and take advantage of. In this series of cross-community sessions, several ESIP collaboration areas will come together to build a common understanding of our challenges, look for opportunities, and share solutions toward adoption of these new structured data best practices. We intend for multiple sessions as part of this cross committee series with different formats and emphasis in each. Sessions are designed to be somewhere between a structured data helpdesk, work-a-thon and funding Friday pitch session.

Session 1: A session of lightning talks will be presented "pitching" breakout ideas that people in the community want to work on or need help getting off the ground. Lightning talk themes will be pre-arranged with topics like: "I need help with this problem" -- "I think we have an opportunity to do X" or "I've been working on this thing and you should too!" The end of this session will be open discussion to form focused breakout groups.
Session 2 and 3: A hands-on / face to face breakout group session to discuss and make progress on the pitched ideas. Breakouts will be required to have a mix of expertise / skills to ensure we have data managers, users, and developers contributing to the same end-goal. The first breakout will be more application and problem oriented while the second will shift to technologies and solutions.

  • Schema.org profiles for particular communities are absolutely needed. To allow interoperability at various levels (discovery, etc.) these profiles need to be very specific (no options or ambiguity). Three examples of this surfaced during these sessions - polar, oceans, samples
  • Need to socialize practices across repositories at all levels of technical capability as well as both Internationally and within the US. Eg. use case - dead simple search of time, space, parameter across all disciplines.
