ESIP Partner Assembly Votes to Endorse Guidance

The ESIP Partner Assembly has voted to endorse Guidance developed by the Cluster. The work helps make Earth science data more discoverable.

Congrats to the cluster participants and guidance co-authors!

Read the news release on the Merge blog and check out the Cluster's resources on their Collaboration Area page.

If you are interested in implementing markup for your data or organization, then join the cluster's monthly calls on the fourth Thursday each month at 2:30 p.m. Eastern.

The 2023 theme is “Opening Doors to Open Science” and the meeting agenda will be available later this fall. Once again, ESIP will be able to offer virtual design support for all session organizers.

ESIP Events and Programs

See you at the Data Help Desk for GSA 2022

This week our Community Director Megan Carter and a dozen volunteers will be at the Data Help Desk during GSA Connects 2022. Find them in person at booth 2312 in the Exhibit Hall and join the conversation online @EarthDataHelp on Twitter or using #DataHelpDesk #GSA2022.

Be an Ignite Speaker at the AGU Fall Meeting (Due Nov 1)

Be bold. Be quick. Share your story.

The popular science storytelling event Ignite@AGU is back for the AGU Fall Meeting 2022 in Chicago this December. In the Ignite format (five minutes with 20 auto-advancing slides), presenters pull in humor, personal stories, vivid images and clear communication to share insights about their work. 

The live event will be Wednesday, December 14 at a local venue. Apply to be a speaker by Tuesday, November 1. Know someone who would be a great Ignite speaker? Share the opportunity with them!

Next IT&I Tech Dive Webinar: Meet openEO (Oct 13)

openEO is a modern high-level API aiming to define earth observation processing workflows independent from the infrastructure in which they are processed. It is based on the concept of virtual data cubes. A broad ecosystem of open-source client and server implementations has evolved around it.

Join us for the Information Technology and Interoperability (IT&I) Tech Dive Webinar with openEO and the USGS Community for Data Integration (CDI) this Thursday, October 13 at 1 p.m. EDT.

ESIP Awards for Collaboration and Impact

Community is the heart of ESIP — and outstanding people and organizations are at the heart of community. Each year, ESIP recognizes a handful of individuals and one of our partners for their contributions to the Earth science data community in the last year. Can you help us give credit where credit is due?

We are seeking applications (due Monday, October 31) for the Martha Maiden Award and our ESIP Partner of the Year.

Disaster Assessment Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (Oct 19, 20, and 27)

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online introductory webinar series: Disaster Assessment Using Synthetic Aperture Radar. This 3-part training, delivered in English and Spanish, will focus on the use of SAR to: assess areas at risk from disasters due to landslides through the use of interferometric SAR (INSAR); characterize the extent of oil spills and their impacts; and characterizing flood inundation extent.

CODATA Call for Papers (Nov 15)

The Data Science Journal is seeking papers for a special collection devoted to “Data Management Planning across Disciplines and Infrastructures.” Papers should focus on work related to Data Management Plans and their implementation, not data management per se.

Special Issue on Geoscience Knowledge Graphs (Closes May 31, 2023)

For a forthcoming special issue on “Geoscience ontologies and knowledge graphs” in Applied Computing & Geoscience, the guest editors invite contributions that present advances in building and applying ontologies or knowledge graphs in any field of geoscience.
