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.

Defining risks for data can be a daunting task. The risk factors for data collections may vary from collection to collection, or vary over time for a single collection. These factors could additionally vary by the priorities and resources available at any given time. The Data Stewardship Committee held a session at the ESIP Summer Meeting 2018 (https://2018esipsummermeeting.sched.com/event/Eypr/building-a-data-risk-factor-matrix) where participants undertook a “card sorting” exercise, an established method for developing categorizations of concepts. The outcome of that exercise indicated more than one way to categorize data risks, thus indicating that any approach may need adjustment depending on the situation at hand.

This working session is intended to further develop and evolve the Data Risk Categorization Matrix (http://bit.ly/2IX3VM5) begun by the Data Stewardship Committee, and to work through test cases for its application. We invite volunteers to use the Categorization Matrix on a data collection they are familiar with prior to the session, then during the session we will discuss issues, comments, concerns, or improvements to the matrix. Participants are encouraged to bring information on a data collection to the session to conduct live assessments with input from other participants.
