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.

All Presentations are being added to a Google Folder temporarily and then will be moved to FigShare and linked to the sessions here.

REO: Work to date, lessons, and possible data/software coming from USGS use of the ESIP Testbed
USGS has been taking advantage of the ESIP Testbed for a number of data systems that are part of our evolving Modular Science Framework, a vision for enabling scientific infrastructure. Some of our developments are reaching a level of maturity where we will start deploying them to production capacity on USGS infrastructure, but there are some other components that might be useful across the broader community. Examples are our Spatial Feature Registry, a system for integrating usable named/identified spatial features through time for analytical uses, and the Taxa Information Registry, a component that assembles best available information from across disparate data sources on biological taxa of interest in our biogeographic work. We offer this session to share what we're doing in these projects, offer opportunities for other groups to share similar work on the ESIP Testbed, and open discussion on how best to conduct this work moving forward.

We're particularly looking for feedback on what parts of what we are doing would be best developed by us and others as ESIP common resources. We're building an inherently distributed architecture, and we can run operational components all over the web. As we take ideas from research to engineering, help us figure out the best pathway that will provide maximum value for USGS and for others.

What to do at a PROV roadblock
To make the PROV graph sing, all nodes should be identifiers to references and should be resolvable and maintained by the appropriate community group. So, when this isn't the case... how do we move ahead anyway?

This session will focus on:

A. How to come to community consensus when roadblocks arise. 
B. How to resolve issues independently and move forward! 

The session will also explore how the ESIP Community Ontology Repository fits into these challenges.

Using Cloud Object Stores for Data Storage and Data Services
This session will review and discuss a variety of approaches for using cloud object store technologies to support earth system science (ESS) data storage and data services. On the data storage side, we will discuss a range of projects from those storing existing ESS data files in object stores to projects developing data formats designed with object stores in mind (Zarr, TileDB, etc.).

On the data service end, we will discuss architectures and solutions to leverage object stores for improving data access and analysis (NEXUS, WSWM, HSDS, etc.). Agenda:
  • Intro
  • James Gallagher: “Adapting existing software to the cloud and preserving the user experience”
  • Frank Greguska: “Using S3 in Apache Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) for data ingestion and analytics
  • Lauren Frederick: “Cumulus”
  • John Readey: "HDF in the Cloud - HSDS"
  • Rich Signell: "Cloud-friendly ndarray formats"
  • Discussion

Interactive Data Analysis on Cloud Environment
From hype to real world applications, cloud computing is proven as the platform to tackle our big data challenges. With the elasticity of the cloud, it is possible for us to develop solutions for our community to analysis and interact large collection of data where the actual computing is performed on the cloud next to the data. This session welcomes speakers to discuss and demonstrate their cloud-based solution for interactive science analysis. Invited speakers: Emily Law/JPL - JPL's Trek technology for interactive exploration of planetary and earth data; Rich Signell/USGS - Interactive, data-proximate analysis of earth system model data on the Cloud; Sudhir Shrestha/ESRI - Improved decision support system with Real time flood inundation forecast Applications; Joe Jacob/JPL - OceanWorks: Ocean Science Data Analytics using Apache Science Data Analytics Platform

Preparing Three Dimensional Data for Virtual and Augmented Reality
Many scientists and researchers have been inspired by the VR and AR demos that they have seen at ESIP, AGU and elsewhere. A common question that surfaces is, “how do I get my data into VR?” In this session, a 3D data expert will share information about how to prepare data for immersive data visualization and ideas about automating the ingest of data into immersive visualization platforms.
