I think this is a great idea. In fact, in the Information Quality Cluster meeting yesterday, Ge Peng was suggesting that we should take on the discussion of provenance and implementation issues to make provenance visible to users. The ideas presented by Elisha fit very well to accomplish that and I believe are worth pursuing. I see that it will be a challenge to bring the various interested parties to gehter and coordinate, but the Data Stewardship Committee is the right place to do that! All the best.

Hi Everyone,

For a little more context, the current Chair of Data Stewardship has needed to step out of the role. The Program Committee will appoint a new Chair and Elisha may agree to be that person, but first wanted to determine whether other Committee participants share her enthusiasm for the direction she is interested in going in.

From my perspective, this sounds like a great and very concrete direction to head in that will involve cross-collaboration area connections with a number of other ESIP groups.

Anyone on this mailing list is invited to speak up if this idea resonates with them, regardless of whether or not you have the energy to contribute in a major way. Questions are also welcome. All input is especially invited before next Wednesday Dec. 6.

What do others think?

Aloha ESIP data stewardship committee!
As I often ask too many questions about data and the research process during ESIP calls, Megan asked me if I would be willing to present a possible project to this group - as something we could consider working on for the rest of the year's term.

I drafted some ideas into a G-doc here<https://docs.google.com/document/d/14rvBVGyr-KhnsiJFzhECU1Tgem-8Z3sqQCawQifxbM4/edit?usp=sharing>. The main goal would be to explore what is necessary to link ESIP data streams in meaningful ways that support accurate navigation across the data landscape, by humans and machines (AI/ML).

Proposed Scope of Effort

  1.  Identify ESIP groups, committees, members that work on use case topic (e.g., wildfires)
  2.  Set up community interviews to learn about their Qs and data sources
  3.  Establish small cross-data source teams to explore metadata required to support data integration/interoperability
  4.  Prep a ESIP summer meeting session to report out, get feedback - what are we missing to make connection, what data sources would others need to address additional Qs
  5.  Draft report on process and finding and determine if useful/relevant to try to apply to other use cases, scale
Happy to field any questions, ideas, thoughts.
