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.

Operational Readiness Levels: Establishing Trusted Data to Improve Situational Awareness

The Disasters Lifecycle cluster, in collaboration with the All Hazards Consortium, is developing Operational Readiness Levels for data-driven decision-making support to improve situational awareness. The AHC’s Sensitive Information Sharing Environment (SISE) Working Group recently communicated the ORL concept to the AHC members, including federal and state agencies as well as private sector companies supporting a broad range of emergency management services. Initial criteria for the ORLs, a flowchart assessment tool, and data examples were demonstrated. We received enthusiastic feedback on the value of the ORL concept, noting that it filled an important void. Work continues on refining strategies and criteria for assessing candidate datasets for specific operational use cases.

During this session we plan to address several challenges in meeting the trust criteria for establishing ORLs – not only for specific use cases but also across user applications and communities. Questions we expect to explore include:
• Who can set ORLs; what is ESIP’s role; how to balance data suppliers’ input from end users’ role
• How to manage ORLs to avoid confusion across user communities
• How to distinguish global issues that all users would consider criteria (e.g., security, availability, …) vs specific issues related to a specific use case
• Strategies for handling crowd-sourced information
