Data to Action: Increasing the Use and Value of Earth Science Data and InformationFor 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth observation data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth observations more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public.

The ESIP Summer Meeting has already taken place, but check out the ESIP Summer Meeting Highlights Webinar: https://youtu.be/vbA8CuQz9Rk.

The FAIR principles provide high-level guidance for making data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. Some of these principles describe repository characteristics and practices while others describe data and metadata characteristics. The metadata characteristics are described in very broad terms like “rich metadata”, “a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes”, and “detailed provenance”.

Data providers in the ESIP community use many metadata dialects to serve many disciplines. Implementing the FAIR Principles in this community requires understanding specific metadata practices and elements that support these broad disciplines.

The goal of this session is to make these metadata recommendations more specific and achieve community consensus on these recommendations.

We will break into groups to discuss metadata elements and checks that we are proposing to support FAIR Principles. Starting points are available for comment as a set of issues at:
F - https://github.com/NCEAS/metadig-checks/labels/Findable
A - https://github.com/NCEAS/metadig-checks/labels/Accessible
I - https://github.com/NCEAS/metadig-checks/labels/Interoperable and
R - https://github.com/NCEAS/metadig-checks/labels/Reusable

I am interested in all facets of metadata needed to discover, access, use, and understand data of any kind. Also evaluation and improvement of metadata collections, translation proofing. Ask me about the Metadata Game.
