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.
