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 this year’s meeting is Leading Innovation in Earth Science Data Frontiers.

Join is for the ESIP Meeting Highlights Webinar on Friday February 19th at 2 pm ET/11 am PT. Find connection info at https://www.esipfed.org/telecons.

Linking Knowledge in the Earth and Space Sciences: Knowledge Graphs/Networks connecting data and individuals

Feedback form is now closed.
Description: The challenges confronting the Earth and Space Sciences (ESS) are increasingly complex, avoiding categorization or solution within neatly defined disciplinary boxes. Transdisciplinary, or "antidisciplinary," approaches are required to address threats in ESS like climate change and space weather.  However, existing approaches to integrating data and knowledge remain crippling to progress and collaboration. Thus, now is the critical time to bring together the antidisciplinary communities to create a new paradigm of knowledge integration using knowledge graphs/networks and semantic technologies. We will collect contributions that utilize these approaches to better structure knowledge across projects. This session will emerge the success stories and best practices for knowledge graphs across ESS.

Format: We propose to highlight the 'home run stories' in the Earth and Space Sciences to create knowledge graphs/networks that have improved information flows between individuals, projects, groups, and data systems. We will first feature these use cases, then hold a discussion period to emerge new articulation, methods, and research vistas for KGs across the Earth and Space Sciences. We hope that the discussion will emerge data models that can be generally used and processes for tailoring them to new applications.
