Current Projects and Collaborations
Semantic Projects in which Committee members are involved in can be found in this section of the Strategic Vision document.
Current Collaboration Areas
- We are evaluating which ontology portal features (mappings, alignment, visualization, registering, etc.) are of need to the broad Earth science community. As of the ESIP Summer Meeting 2017, a comprehensive Ontology Portal Evaluation has been undertaken to understand what the community needs and what resources are necessary to support those needs.
- We are considering how to establish an Ontology Repository Evaluation Roadmap.
- We are evaluating what it means to be a "good" ontology and what governance looks like for community developed and maintained semantic resources (ontologies and taxonomies)
- In conjunction with ESIP's Products and Services we are helping to evaluate software readiness levels and software reuse.
- We are working with ESIP's Cloud Computing Cluster to explore efficient and extensible means of hosting ESIP-wide semantic resources
