 Hello everyone

Kathe and Simon alerted to me to the terrible sound during my presentation. Thank you for alerting me and I really apologise, this is the first time I have had that complaint - I’ll investigate my setup.

Attached are the slides, which as well as the notes should capture most of the main points. Thank you for the note taking, and the succinct email summary Kathe. Our team will keep you posted re. how we go with roll out and further development of our user interface – users in this phase primarily farming and catchment management groups - and the delivery of data in various formats (including JSON-LD) through services. The Observations and Measurements approach is proving pretty flexible for our purposes, so far. Looking forward to further interesting discussions.

See you in the next meeting!

Best Regards

Subject: [Esip-soil-informatics] Meeting recap

Thank you to all that were able to call in to the meeting on Wednesday, and a special thank you to Dr. Megan Wong for her presentation! For those who were unable to attend, here is a recap:

Dr. Megan Wong (Centre for eResearch and Innovation (CeRDI) Federation Uni Australia) presented on the approaches, challenges, and solutions for applying controlled vocabularies in standardizing agricultural soils data in Australia. Balancing the needs of informatics with data providers remains a key challenge; data providers often provide poorly or undocumented data requiring constant communication between the informatics team and data providers. Manual templates filled out by the informatics team remains a critical step in data integration for the project. While control vocabulary and procedures from larger groups (INSPIRE and the Green/Yellow books) were leveraged in the group when possible, it was still necessary to create new procedures and vocabularies to capture the data.

Our next meeting will take place on 2 December 2020 at 2300 UTC. Mark Schildhauer (NCEAS/UCSB, NSF Arctic Data Center, and DataONE) and David Smith (USDA-NRCS) will lead the discussion on Semantics Use Case for “Soil Bulk Density.” We hope to see you there!
