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.

REO: Work to date, lessons, and possible data/software coming from USGS use of the ESIP Testbed

Feedback form is now closed.
USGS has been taking advantage of the ESIP Testbed for a number of data systems that are part of our evolving Modular Science Framework, a vision for enabling scientific infrastructure. Some of our developments are reaching a level of maturity where we will start deploying them to production capacity on USGS infrastructure, but there are some other components that might be useful across the broader community. Examples are our Spatial Feature Registry, a system for integrating usable named/identified spatial features through time for analytical uses, and the Taxa Information Registry, a component that assembles best available information from across disparate data sources on biological taxa of interest in our biogeographic work. We offer this session to share what we're doing in these projects, offer opportunities for other groups to share similar work on the ESIP Testbed, and open discussion on how best to conduct this work moving forward.

We're particularly looking for feedback on what parts of what we are doing would be best developed by us and others as ESIP common resources. We're building an inherently distributed architecture, and we can run operational components all over the web. As we take ideas from research to engineering, help us figure out the best pathway that will provide maximum value for USGS and for others.
