Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group(s):
The sUAS data IG is focused on improving the FAIRness of data captured using sUAS in research via best practices, automation, and community education, and on lowering the barrier to use of sUAS for researchers.
The RDMinEng IG had already three working meetings (P12 to P14) with researchers, representatives from industry, funders and library as well as research data providers. The meetings were well attended with 24 to more than 40 persons which demonstrates the deep interest in the topic. In the last meeting at P 14 four focus groups were coming up on the topics Engineering and Open Science, Engineering-specific DMP, Engineering Data Annotation and Engineering Metadata. All the groups are right in the beginning and everyone is welcome to join the focus groups. If you are interested please do not hesitate to contact one of the co-chairs.
