Session Abstract:
There are many efforts underway to map the landscape of projects in earth science, including Research Data Alliance, EarthCube, ESIP and the RISCAPE project in Europe. This session will provide the current status of many of these efforts. We would also like to use this session to describe how ESIP meeting participants can contribute to the mapping effort during the Winter Meeting.
Ideally this session would be scheduled on Tuesday to give meeting participants to add to the landscape that be available during the meeting for additions and corrections.

  • Welcome & Introduction (Rebecca Koskela)
  • RDA Mapping the Landscape Interest Group (Steve Diggs)
  • ESIP/RDA Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Interest Group (Lesley Wyborn)
  • ESIP - The Market Landscape (Erin Robinson)
  • Mapping RDA, EarthCube (and other) Landscapes with SuAVE (Ilya Zaslavsky)
  • Group Discussion
Session Takeaways (post-meeting):
1) There are a TON of communities within ESIP and related organizations. Mapping the working relationships between these groups can help researchers and the public understand the work that is being done.
2) Tools for visualizing both Graph Data (Kumu maps) and survey data (SuAVE) can be valuable for interacting with metadata on the Earth science data community.
3) Mapping the links between ESIP communities, projects, working groups, collaborators, etc. can make the program more understandable and tractable to new members, funding organizations, and the public.
