Welcome to the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) 2018 Summer Meeting! The 2018 theme is Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years.

All Presentations are being added to a Google Folder temporarily and then will be moved to FigShare and linked to the sessions here.

The aspiration of many data organizations that fund seed projects, including the USGS Community for Data Integration, is to support integrated, reusable, and sustainable tools and data. This year, the CDI funded several projects under the theme of risk assessment and hazard vulnerability, with the goal of coordinating and integrating the outputs. Project teams will meet during this breakout session, which occurs midway through the funding period, to report on progress, learn from each other, and coordinate to optimize their outputs. The selected projects are improving accessibility to drought modeling, hazards and assets data (for example, invasive species, landslides, and infrastructure data), and tools for knowledge extraction and data documentation. Integrating data and resources on hazards and assets improves our ability to assess strategic risk, predict future hazards impact, and realize the socioeconomic value of earth science data.
