Please join us this morning for ESIP’s webinar on,

"Does it matter? The Socioeconomic Value of Earth Science Data, Information,
and applications"

Date: June 5, 2018
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Location: Go To Meeting; https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/809085733

As the first webinar in our series, “The Socioeconomic Value of Earth
Science Data, Information, and Applications”, we explore the value and
benefits that Earth Science data brings to society, including its
contributions to economics and quality of life. The challenges and
opportunities for enhancing Earth Science’s societal benefits are also
broadly addressed. To offer a balanced perspective behind the meaning of
“value”, our panel represents expertise from economics, earth science, data
and informatics, engineering, social sciences, and policy. Panelists provide
examples of different techniques and approaches that can be used to enhance
socioeconomic value, such as citizen science, and highlight some communities
of practice that are currently addressing these issues, such as GEOValue.
