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.

The National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP) works with state geological surveys and U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) bureaus to support and foster the archival of geological, geophysical, and engineering data, maps, photographs, samples, and other physical specimens. Metadata records describing these assets are managed in the National Digital Catalog (NDC). The NDC is being re-architected to provide end-to-end improvements in capabilities and services to data providers and users. The goal is to evolve an existing system in the context of many identification systems (ORCID, USGS, ROR, DOI, IGSN, …), existing tools (GeoLog Locator, ScienceBase, mdTools), metadata models (ours, ISO, mdJSON, ScienceBase, SESAR, Science on Schema.org), vocabularies (GCMD, mdTools, many others), representations, and the FAIR principles. This session will encourage representatives of many of these group to discuss how we build a thriving collaborative documentation ecosystem larger than the sum of its parts.

How to prepare for this session: Think about information you need to discover, access, use, understand and trust specimens and other items in scientific collections. Bring examples of well-documented collections that you have created or used.

I am interested in all facets of metadata needed to discover, access, use, and understand data of any kind. Also evaluation and improvement of metadata collections, translation proofing. Ask me about the Metadata Game.
