Apologies for any cross-postings with other email lists.

Earth observation data are collected by many countries and agencies, typically for specific purposes but frequently useful in other applications. Mindful of these interdisciplinary uses , EO data must be managed and preserved in a manner to be readily discovered, understood and utilized in novel and unanticipated ways. Clearly this requires data management approaches that can be applied broadly while still be adaptable to specific needs. Our AGU session – Common Data Frameworks for Interdisciplinary Science – provides an opportunity for the AGU informatics community to share their experience regarding policies, practices and challenges relevant to the management of EO data for interdisciplinary research and applications.

Abstract for IN013:

With the incredible growth in Earth observation data and in open data sharing, managing data so that it can be readily used for all research and applications is of great importance. This year the US government released the Common Framework for Earth-Observation Data, which provides a set of recommended practices for managing data. The Framework recommends a small set of standards and protocols to use regarding metadata and services for cataloging and access with the goal of easing discovery and use of Earth-observation data from sources across the Federal government.


This session will explore the benefits of having such a policy framework and future steps both domestically and internationally. Speakers can highlight current work being done to improve data interoperability, how the Common Framework is relevant for other data types, other countries and multinational organizations, and considerations for data management that have yet to be addressed in the Common Framework.


Note that the deadline for abstract submission is August 3, 2016. The link to the session can be found here<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm16/preliminaryview.cgi/Session13562>.
