ESIP Winter Meeting: January 9 - 11, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Winter Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2018 theme is Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years. 

  • There will be lots going on in Slack during the meeting, find your invite HERE. #winter_mtg

Visioning a Software Tools Framework & Workflow for near-End-to-End Sensor Data Management

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this Working Session, the ESIP EnviroSensing Cluster will lead a discussion focused on the needs, opportunities, and workflow for sensor data management software tools, with an end to visioning a framework that would be broadly applicable to streaming sensor data. Anyone with interests in this area is encouraged to participate and contribute, especially sensor network managers and scientists. We will hand out paper workflow graphics with blank spaces for participants to indicate their current solutions as a data gathering exercise, and then have an informal group discussion about choke points and challenges. So, think about how you acquire, transport, store, check, analyze, curate, and distribute your sensor data: which tools you use right now, how much relative time they take, and what parts of the workflow you really want to improve as data collection increases. General items of discussion will include, but are not limited to: 1) streamlining information manager workflow; 2) aligning to existing and upcoming metadata standards; and 3) reducing management system setup and maintenance complexity. We will discuss these topics within the context of sensor science 'best practices' as developed by the Cluster in previous years, as well as emerging provenance and data requirements concepts.
