Do you like robots? Do you like flying robots? Do you like open earth science data? Do you like flying robots that collect earth science data to help solve important global challenges? Then please join us in Bloomington, IN for a 1 day drone data Workshop & Hackathon on July 24, 2017. The morning workshop includes short presentations by earth and information scientists from NASA, USGS, DJI, USDA, OGC and others involved in the area of science drones (AKA small unmanned aerial systems AKA sUAS AKA flying data robots). After lunch, speakers and participants will come together for a hackathon, working on projects ranging from prototyping data formating tools, through brainstorming best practices for data management, workflow design, or [your idea here].

Attendance is FREE (though please sign up HERE by June 30th) and food will be provided! Contact workshop organizers Jane Wyngaard and Lindsay Barbieri for more information at [,].

Ride Sharing from Indianapolis to Bloomington

Once all ideas have been gathered, there will be a two week comment period leading up to the ESIP Summer Meeting, where 2-3 ideas will be selected to move forward for further development. There is still time to spread the word on Twitter with #CommunityPROV for a chance to win the mini-challenge prize!

Get started here!

Around the Federation
Request: Short survey on data use
You are invited to participate in a study on how you collect, use, and share research data. The study will cover topics related to data storage, management, and your attitudes regarding the general use and re-use of research data. We are interested in responses from all subject disciplines. 
The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete depending on how you answer, and is being conducted by the DataONE project’s Usability & Assessment Team at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. The link below will take you to the consent page of the survey. We thank you for your time and participation!
