Rants and Raves Webinar Series Kickoff - February 03 at 01:00 PM CST

The ESIP Information Technology and Interoperability Committee this year 
will host Rants and Raves Webinar series.  The Rants and Raves Webinar 
provides a platform to any ESIP member to present any Information 
Technology and Interoperability related issues, seek suggestions/ideas 
or present cool new technology useful to the ESIP community. Dr. 
Christopher Lynnes will kickoff the series with a rant on the 
difficulties associated with Earth Science data on Feb 03, 2010 at 1:00 

Earth Science Data:  Why So Difficult?
Dr. Christopher Lynnes

Assembling a multi-sensor set of data for, say, a volcanic eruption 
means days of wandering cyberspace to find data and pry it loose from 
the custom search interfaces that jealously guard it. Following the 
Search is a slog of weeks reading format and QA documents, then cobbling 
together code to beat the data into a form that can be used safely in 
analysis tools.  Why so difficult?$%#@^%!???

Above rant to be followed by a (mostly) calm and rational discussion of 
ways toward a solution.
