Welcome to the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) 2018 Summer Meeting! 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.

Web-based Tools and Data Standards for Electronic Tagging and In situ Datasets: An Interactive & Consultative Workshop

Decision support and other earth science data applications for societal benefit increasingly rely on the integration of multivariate data from various sensors. This in turn hinges critically on interoperability aspects of such data and the means by which they are delivered. The inherent heterogeneity of oceanographic in situ datasets and their variable adherence to data standards poses a significant impediment to interoperability and their long-term data stewardship. The Oceanographic In situ data Interoperability Project (OIIP), funded under NASA/ACCESS, is a collaboration between JPL, UCAR/Unidata and the Large Pelagics Research Center (UMASS-Boston). OIIP aims to address these interoperability challenges with a focus on technology solutions for data from both conventional oceanographic sensors and emerging datasets for electronic tags deployed on biological “glider” platforms. The project seeks to deliver a reusable and accessible set of web-based and open source tools to: 1) mediate reconciliation of heterogeneous source data into a tractable number of standardized, archivable formats consistent with earth science data standards. 2) develop an improved data model supporting metadata rich in situ datasets. 3) enhance THREDDS server technology for support of point, profile, trajectory data series. 4) implement a web-based visualization tool based on JPL’s Common Mapping Client for comprehensive mapping and charting of earth science spatial data types. The objective of this session is to engage directly with stakeholders, soliciting community comment on OIIP capabilities demonstrated in an interactive workshop setting. Interactive demonstrations will focus on the following areas: 1) integrated web-based visualization of in situ and satellite remote sensing data. 2) use of ROSETTA to produce standards compliant data files from ASCII source files. 3) demonstration of new, THREDDS V5.0 support for discrete geometry data types. 4) extensions of geospatial metadata standards developed during OIIP to support “rich”, community specific metadata for enhanced, semantically aware search.
