My co-conveners and I would like to alert you to Session IN042 Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences across Community, National and International Boundaries at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting in Washington from 10-14 December.
In this session at the AGU Fall meeting we hope to highlight the work and developments of the numerous collaborations and partnerships that building Earth, Space and Environmental data infrastructures and data sharing capabilities at either community, national or international levels.
The scale you at which you are working at or how many people are participating in your project is not important. Many major international collaborations started first as small, local community efforts. The session is aimed to raise awareness of what you are building, regardless of scale, so that maybe others can join forces, minimise duplication and prevent reinvention of the wheel.
Here is the full session description if you would like to contribute an abstract, raise the profile of your work and make new connections. Consider also Early Career Researchers on your teams who could make the presentation.
IN042: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences across Community, National and International Boundaries
The last decade has seen rapid growth in the number of online data sets and tools, many of which are coordinated by separate communities in the Earth, space, and environmental sciences. Notable efforts include GEO, ESGF, ESIP, EPOS, CUHASI, ENVRI, AuScope, EDI, EarthCube, OneGeology, ODIP, IGSN and DataOne. There are common technological and science challenges that each is trying to solve in isolation. Although standards, vocabularies, formats, etc are cohesive within each community, there are sufficient differences that make it hard to integrate data across them. The time is ripe to synchronise efforts to create globally connected networks of Earth, Space and Environmental Science data, information systems, software and researchers.
Papers are solicited from those building community specific systems or from those trying to resolve the challenges of internationally linking multiple communities to create networked environments for developing common global solutions for more efficient and effective use of limited, available funding.
