[edit] Subgroup Members:

  • Chris Lenhardt
  • Stefan Falke

[edit] Issues to Be Addressed:

  • Interfacing with other organizations – national & international (AGU, EGY, GEO, CEOS, ISRSE, others?) – how do we support our efforts in this? ESIP ambassadors; distinctions between wearing multiple hats; collaborations
  • Map relationships across organizations; what’s the landscape (concept map development tool)
  • Training for and Engagement of Next Generation of Data Managers – academic discipline; stewardship
  • Tentative List of Organizations and Type
    • AGU - Professional
    • EGY - Scientific/Data Stewardship
    • GEO - Applications/Decision Support
    • CEOS - Scientific
    • ISRSE -
    • WDCs - Data Stewardship
    • CODATA - Science Policy/Data Stewardship
    • ICSU/IGBP - Scientific
    • ISPRS - Professional
    • UN-GRID - Scientific/Applications/Decision Support

[edit] Discussion:

  • External Relations
    • Should we interface? Yes! The listed group represents a good start. But, these should not be the universe - where are the smaller, lesser known organizations (e.g. less formally structured groups like the EPA Data Summit; domain experts)
    • How to handle overlap among different groups? Connections are important to make & are being loosely made. CEOS wanted to make connections to Sensor Web and GEO. CEOS formed an Atmospheric Science Interest Group to make connections among/between groups.
    • GEOSS Air Quality Community of Practice - is the ESIP Federation limited as a domestic organization? or can we/should we play internationally?
    • ESSI focus groups at AGU, EGU
    • ESIP is uniquely positioned at intersection of science and technology
    • Should Data Management be its own academic discipline?
    • Integration of data management principles across academic disciplines is probably the way to go (e.g. like GIS)
    • How should data managers think? how does this relate to collaboration? need to look at the reward mechanisms for creating data sets
    • Should ESIP provide continuing education/professional development to data managers? (e.g. look at UCGIS [1]
    • Will the types of outreach differ based on the type of organization, e.g. professional organization v. scientific/research v. applications/decision-support?
    • Are the goals of external relations clear?
      • Recruit new members?
      • Promote scientific data stewardship?
      • Facilitate data mash-ups, application development?
      • Promote networking?


  • Promote Data Stewardship Vocation
    • ID list of data stewardship-related post-graduate academic programs
    • Look at issues related to informatics of ESIP Federation data
    • Provide a job search clearinghouse service (!!!); need to link potential employers with potential employees or soon-to-be grads of the academic programs
    • Provide a means for knowledge capture related to the stewardship of ESIP Federation-related data???

[edit] Recommendations:

  • Test waters with other organizations - international and domestic
    • Need to Identify/Map Organizations Where ESIP Partners are Active - Social Networking Software/concept mapping tool
  • Explore what the ESIP Federation might do to train/provide continuing education to data managers.
