ESIP Update: Mentorship, Inclusion, and Celebration

We're celebrating 25 years — and so is The Carpentries! Plus, new articles, events, and job posts in the #EarthScienceData world.

ESIP News and Events

Celebrate 25 Years of ESIP

Silver Anniversary, two and a half decades, a quarter century. 25 years is a big celebration.

(For us and The Carpentries! Their Executive Director Kari Jordan is the speaker for our ESIP Meeting Opening Plenary.)

Some ESIP History

Created by NASA in 1998, ESIP was formed to bring together community stakeholders. A National Resource Council recommendation called for breaking down silos in the development of NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) as a critical element of the U.S. Global Change Research Program.

Since its inception, ESIP has continually grown and attracted a diverse group of partners. That now includes more than 170+ partner organizations and 30+ Collaboration Areas as well as the ESIP Lab. ESIP partners include federal data centers, government research laboratories, research universities, education resource providers, technology developers, and various nonprofit and commercial enterprises. Our nonprofit is governed by volunteer leadership and funded by cooperative agreements with NASA, NOAA, and USGS.
