Back to Partnership -- The following applications have been posted for review by the Partnership Committee
Winter 2020 Class
Engineering Research Development Center at US Army Corps of Engineers - ESIP-II
The USACE collects, processes, and analyses geospatial and earth science data for both military and civil applications, particularly in support of our nation's infrastructure needs.
Crowd2Map - ESIP-II
We are supporting capacity development in Tanzania by helping train community activists and youthmapper chapters to use technology to develop their communities. We are mapping rural Tanzania into OpenStreetMap and supporting rural groups and universities with remote sensing. We are working with organizations such as Selian Agricultural Research Institute (SARI, http://www.erails.net/TZ/sari/sari) in Arusha, Tanzania, and Africa Soil Information Service project (AfSIS, http://africasoils.net) to help farmers groups and others to access and use their data.
Environmental Data & Governance Initiative (EDGI) - ESIP-II
EDGI is a home for accountability around federal treatment of environmental data and information. In addition to monitoring changes to federal sites and writing public comments, we provide reporting and information around the state of earth science coverage & influence in the U.S. federal government, and envision more archivally sound, distributed, and just futures for data in this sector.
Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research - ESIP-III
Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research is one of seven New Zealand Crown Research Institutes (CRIs) formed in 1992. CRIs function as independent companies but are owned by, and accountable to, the New Zealand Government. We are responsible for four National Outcomes, to: 1) Achieve the sustainable use of soil and land resources and their ecosystem services across catchments and sectors; 2) Improve the measurement and mitigation of greenhouse gases from the terrestrial biosphere; 3) Improve the measurement, management and protection of New Zealand's terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity, including those in the conservation estate; and 4) Increase the ability of New Zealand industries and organizations to develop within environmental limits and meet market and community requirements.
We have 7 science portfolios that work closely with central and local government, private sector businesses and organizations, and Māori organizations. We collaborate extensively with other research organizations in New Zealand and around the world.
Metadata Game Changers - ESIP-III
Many ESIP members rely on metadata as a primary mechanism for describing data and other research objects in a way that facilitates discovery and use. Our role is to help provide advice and analysis to scientists and data managers on documentation, metadata and data management. We bring extensive experience with NOAA, NASA, DataOne, DataCite, CrossRef, and other metadata repositories to this work.
Montana Technological University - ESIP-II
Montana Technological University specializes in engineering and science and houses the Montana Bureaus of Mines and Geology. Montana Tech currently has research on Geophysics, Remote Sensing, Domain Science in Biology, Chemistry, Geophysics, and other fields. Students, faculty, and affiliated researchers have a wide variety of in-situ and remote sensing projects that are integral to the Earth science community.
