If putting a dollar value on your research makes you queasy, yet you must do it to justify and continue your work, this session is here to help. This session will feature 3 presentations on approaches and tools for tying your Earth Observations (EO) data with quantifiable business value. Building upon other ESIP threads such as the benefits of using EO data to build resilient communities, and spatial information as a key to link science, demographics, and economic value, presentations will focus on business use cases for EO, how to connect observation data to economic datasets, and how to position your EO research products. During the latter half of the session, we invite discussion on real world experiences, and challenges and successes you encounter.

1) What's the Value of Integrating Socioeconomic and Earth Observations Data? - Bob Downs (CIESIN), Bob Chen (CIESIN), and Karen Moe (NASA GSFC)
2) Increase the Relevance, Impact, and Efficiency of Your Research - Ben Hickson (University of Arizona)
3) Understanding Value to Articulate Worth in EO Data - Christine White (Esri), Laura McNulty (Esri), and Tripp Corbett (Esri)
