===Current Projects and Collaborations===
 
 
Semantic Projects in which Committee members are involved in can be found in [[Strategic_Vision#Current_Projects|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 [https://esipfed.github.io/stc/UseCases/STCUseCasesAndRequirements.html 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 [[Ontology_Governance|governance]] looks like for community developed and maintained semantic resources (ontologies and taxonomies)
 
# In conjunction with ESIP's [[Products_and_Services| Products and Services]] we are helping to evaluate software readiness levels and software reuse.
 
# We are working with [[Cloud_Computing | ESIP's Cloud Computing Cluster]] to explore efficient and extensible means of hosting ESIP-wide semantic resources
