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.

This two part session will focus on real-life use cases for ESIP's semantic technology resources, and hands-on tutorials to help ESIP members begin taking advantage of these resources. Part 1 will feature presentations from people who are using semantic resources: how they are using them and why, and what they are getting for their efforts. Part II will feature hands-on tutorials to help ESIP members use our semantic resources in their own environments to solve actual problems. Tutorials will include using schema.org for improved search rankings; using JSON LD for linked data; using COR and Bioportal for document annotation.

AGENDA:

Semantic Search in Action in ArcGIS Hub, Pranav Kulkarni, ESRI R & D Center

Esri's ArcGIS Hub has an improved search experience by implementing semantic search using a knowledge graph. The search is context-aware and provides a great user experience in search and discovery of data on ArcGIS Hub.
Pranav Kulkarni will be talking about how his team implemented semantic search at scale and how the knowledge graph can be grown with custom vocabularies further improving the search results.

Semantics in Action in the Cryosphere, Ruth Duerr The Cryospheric science and polar regions communities have a number of organizations and activities, both global and national, that are trying to pull together the observations and data needed to understand the rapid changes occurring in the Arctic.  As part of these activities, work is going on across the full range of the semantic spectrum - everything from controlled vocabularies, to glossaries, to full blown ontologies.  Ruth will discuss some of these activities, their underlying use cases, and how they tie to other semantics activities in ESIP and Earth science generally.

Using the Environment Ontology (ENVO), Pier Luigi Buttigieg, Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research 

The Environment Ontology (ENVO) is a community ontology for the machine-readable representation of environmental entities. ENVO has been built along the best practices of the Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology Foundry and Library, thus reuses and aligns to a suite of existing ontologies to express environmental entities such as geographic, astronomical, and anthropogenic features as well as the processes they participate in. The ontology’s initial uses were in the life sciences, and thus focused on entities such as biomes and ecosystems. It has become a standard resource in the genomes and microbiome communities, and is steadily being adopted in other disciplines. Most recently, ENVO has seeded and interoperates with ontologies in the domains of agronomy, food science, and - in collaboration with UN Environment - the Sustainable Development Goals. It also is providing semantic expression for a number of existing and emerging standard vocabularies, extending their functionality.

 Pier Luigi will discuss typical usage scenarios for the Environment Ontology, including its recent deployment in the UNESCO/IOC-IODE Ocean Best Practice repository and an example of combining ENVO and Gene Ontology to mobilise data  in environmental genomics.
