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.

"Brains! Brains! Give us your brains!"               
      - Friendly neighbourhood machine minds
The collective knowledge in the ESIP community is immense and invaluable. During this session, we'd like to make sure that this knowledge drives the semantic technology (ontologies) being developed to move data with machine-readable knowledge in Earth and planetary science.
What we'll do:
  1. In the first half hour of this session, we'll a) sketch out how and why we build ontologies and b) show you how to request that your knowledge gets added to ontologies (with nanocrediting).
  2. We'll then have a 30-minute crowdsourcing jam session, during which participants can share their geoscience knowledge on the SWEET issue tracker. With a simple post, you can shape how the semantic layer will behave, making sure it does your field justice! Request content and share knowledge here: https://github.com/ESIPFed/sweet/issues
  3. In the last, 30 minutes we'll take one request and demonstrate how we go about "ontologising" it in ENVO and how we link that to SWEET to create interoperable ontologies across the Earth and life sciences.
Come join us and help us shape the future of Geo-semantics!

Stuff you'll need:
  1. A GitHub account available at https://github.com/
  2. An ORCID (for nanocrediting your contributions) available at https://orcid.org
