The Data Product Developer's’ Guide Working Group within NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Working Groups has been developing a guide to assist science data product developers in designing and producing products that are interoperable and conveniently usable by the community. A draft version of this document is expected to be available for broad review in early July 2019. While the initial target audience for this document are the NASA teams responsible for product generation, it is expected to be more broadly applicable. The purpose of this workshop session is to present briefly the contents of this document to interested ESIP members and promote a broader participation in the review process and facilitate improvements for the benefit of end user communities. During this session, the attendees will be divided into subgroups to review individual sections of the document and provide comments

Session Take-Aways
  1. Most attendees felt that the DPDG would be a useful contribution to help data producers make usable data products.
  2. Over 80 comments were collected during the session from four subgroups reviewing different sections of the document.
  3. Some of the key comments and suggestions included:
    1. Retitle the document to include “Data Producers” in the title. 
    2. Provide a paragraph upfront to tie sections to particular goals of particular readers
    3. Provide guidance on how to facilitate user feedback on data product usability and quality
    4. Rework discussion on chunk size for data
    5. Note how the Common Metadata Repository can make good use of certain types of metadata to make data more Findable
