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.

Deriving transdisciplinary solutions that are responsive to complex socio-environmental challenges require, as stated in ESIP’s mission statement, linking “observation, research, application, education and use of Earth science”. One of the motivations behind the FAIR Principles (for scientific data management and stewardship) is enhancing machine-augmented capabilities to help researchers and practitioners find relevant data and information across “traditional” silos. The aim of this tutorial is to provide participants with an overview of the role ontologies play in enhancing collaboration across these silos.

Outcomes. The tutorial is meant to:
  • help participants understand the value of developing robust descriptions of processes, and harmonizing variable names in code, models, data products, and publications; and
  • learn how concept maps can be used to help model knowledge.

Time and date. 2020-07-13 (Monday) | 1200 hrs US eastern daylight time (GMT-4) | 3.5 hours (inclusive of a brief break)

Instructors. The tutorial will be jointly delivered by Drs. Anne Thessen (Oregon State University) and Pier Buttigieg (Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration / GEOMAR).
