- *Scalable
   Cloud Optimized Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for Earth Science Big
   Data and Analytics*; Scientists and engineers use geospatial data to
   manage organizational infrastructure, quantify the need and risk
   associated, and plan future development. The diversity and complexity of
   scientific data pose challenges in how it is stored, accessed, managed,
   shared, visualized, and fused for answering scientific questions. SDI for
   Earth and Space Sciences is built on frameworks that supports to enable
   Earth Observations such as satellite imagery, climate-weather observations,
   and forecasts that are service oriented and distributed via Geographic
   Information System (GIS). Such frameworks allow us to interoperate with
   systems of systems such as cloud computing, analysis ready data; analytics
   that can integrate with Artificial Intelligence to generate science
   products based on users need. This session explores critical components of
   cloud-optimized SDIs, workflows for spatio-temporal data ingest, archive,
   storage, visualization and distribution, and the use of GIS, spatial
   machine/deep learning, HPC as applied in big Earth data exploitation, 3D,
   4D Earth Science Data.
   - IN017 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81049>
- *Communities,
   Tools and Policies that Enable Integration of Earth, Space and
   Environmental Science Data and Cyberinfrastructures;* In recent years
   there has been rapid growth in online datasets, vocabularies, tools and
   compute resources for Earth, space and environmental science researchers.
   Most are coordinated by separate communities and range from major
   international/national initiatives down to notable efforts by much smaller
   communities. There are social, scientific and technological challenges that
   each is trying to solve in isolation, but there are sufficient differences
   that make it hard to leverage common developments across them. The time is
   ripe to synchronize efforts and create globally connected networks of
   Earth, space and environmental Science data, software, compute resources
   and researchers. Presentations are solicited ranging from those building
   community specific systems to those trying to resolve the challenges of
   internationally linking multiple communities to create globally networked
   environments that share common solutions for more efficient and effective
   use of limited funding.
