[ESIP-all] Federation Data Systems Information Request

Hello to all,

This is a follow up email request to one sent in mid-September asking 
for your help in pulling together the data and information system 
'story' of the Federation.  As you may remember we are putting 
together a package of materials to be used for revealing the 
contributions of the ESIP Federation, through its members and other 
partners, in adding to and improving current data and information 
systems used in Earth science research, education and applications.

I have to date received some feedback from a handful of partners so I 
am asking once again to assure that I gather the broadest and most 
comprehensive set of examples possible.  To make the organization of 
any examples you feel would help I attached a single powerpoint slide 
that uses four quadrants to describe your activity - feel free to 
modify this to suit your needs.  Some have sent back questions 
regarding what kind of information is appropriate for this exercise. 
The simple answer is any that help us show how the Federation is 
facilitating the 'flow' of data and information among and between 
users, producers, partners, etc.  Your project may not be 'building' 
some facet of a data system but it may be helping in other ways to 
connect users to data and information - this is also a great story to 

If you have any questions please feel free to email or call me.  We 
are hoping to have a package together shortly after the Thanksgiving 

best, and thanks,
