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.

Cloud computing holds the promise of novel data analysis capabilities for geoscientists by providing affordable on-demand computing system resources. One of the major differences with the traditional computing systems is web-based object storage which requires new data access methods with a different set of performance parameters.

The aim of this session is to provide the ESIP community with an opportunity to learn about the current capabilities for accessing data in cloud object stores. The emphasis will be on the actual software, data servers or libraries, which are capable of accessing cloud object stores, performance issues and bottlenecks, and best practices that can be adopted when migrating data to the cloud. When considering end-user applications, this session is about how those tools access data from the novel data storage systems available with cloud computing and not about the algorithms, etc., associated with data visualization, analytics, or machine learning.
