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.

Metadata Evaluation - Tools and Results

ESIP community members are actively working throughout the data life cycle from data management planning to collection and creation to archiving, discovery, and data reuse. They use many metadata dialects to address multiple data use cases and are exposed to metadata requirements and recommendations from many organizations, disciplines, and communities. Using these recommendations to guide metadata improvement requires being able to evaluate existing metadata collections with respect to these recommendations. These evaluations can take many forms and serve many purposes.
We will discuss the role of repositories in these evaluations beginning with insights from three repositories:
  1. DataOne/Arctic Data Center (Matt Jones)
  2. EDI/LTER (Margaret O’Brien)
  3. Dryad (Ted Habermann & Daniella Lowenberg)
with a focus on three questions:
  1. How can repositories/networks use metadata evaluation in curation of data and metadata 
  2. What supporting tools and infrastructure exist at repositories for evaluating metadata
  3. How can metadata evaluation help motivate and measure evolution of metadata and dialects.
We plan to have plenty of time for discussion after these presentations.

Chief Game Changer, Metadata Game Changers
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.
