ESIP plenary and Drones

Hi all
Hope you're keeping well in these strange times. Virtual ESIP is already
upon us, I know the ESIP team has done some amazing work to make sure even
though we're virtual there will be stellar content.
If you haven't signed up already it's $200 and happening next week, see the
schedule here (they've
specifically arranged things to allow for some days to be more Australia
friendly too)
So 2 places drones will be highlighted/discussion had that we hope will be
of relevance to the future of drones and data:

Hi Jane,
As I'm sure you've heard, we are having an OGC TC/PC Virtual meeting week, 15-23 June 2020.
The joint Aviation and Unmanned Systems Domain Working Group meeting time slot is 17 June 14:30-16:00 EDT,
and I would be delighted if you could present an update on your work in both RDA and ESIP.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Stay safe, be well,

For interest: Radiant earth's requirements on AI training metadata

Hi all
Thoughts this was interesting. I'd say there's alot more needed for a best
practice guide for drone data but great to see a considered list. In
summary (but read the article):
1. Is the data geographically specific?
2. Are the classes well defined and consistent?
3. Are the required metadata included?
4. Is the data properly licensed?
5. Is the data properly formatted?
