Partner Assembly Endorses Santa Barbara Charter

Inclusiveness is one of ESIP’s core values. The ESIP Partner Assembly’s endorsement of the Santa Barbara Charter: Broadening Participation in Environmental Data Science is a reflection of our community’s commitment to seeking many voices and perspectives.
Read the full charter and sign on as an individual or organization: 

Collaboration and openness are two other core ESIP values. That means our organizational leadership felt strongly that official endorsement through the ESIP Partner Assembly was the most effective way for ESIP to support the Santa Barbara Charter and its implementation.

IT&I Committee: Rants and Raves

Rants and Raves are designed to get smart people to share insightful, provocative views of what's great and what's not about information technology and interoperability (IT&I) in modern Earth science. The IT&I Committee and USGS Community for Data Integration (CDI) welcome, high energy talks on personal pet peeves: topics that you can't believe in this day and age we're still dealing with, or solutions that you can't believe that in this day and age more people aren't using.
