Collaboration Area Plan

Collaboration Area Objective:

  • Provide a forum and resources for interoperability and new technology transfer, developement, and infusion.
  • Encourage the use of best IT practices to ensure the quality, usability, and breadth of Earth science data.
  • Ensure that data, information, and services can be readily doscovered, exchanged, and integrated through the use of interoperability standards and protocols.

(Taken from ESIP Bylaws section [https://github.com/ESIPFed/Governance/blob/master/Bylaws.md V.3] "Standing Committee for Information Technology and Interoperability.)

Things we may do to fulfill our objectives:

  • Coordinate the IT&I focused ( Interoperability_and_Technology/Tech_Dive_Webinar_Series)
  • Coordination with all IT&I themed committees and clusters
    • Quarterly committee/cluster chair telecon
    • Coordinate with committees/clusters on ESIP summer and winter meeting sessions
    • others???
  • Develop a definition of "Data Interoperability" for ESIP
  • others???

Things our collaboration area needs to deliver our objectives?

(e.g. Partnerships, in-kind support, staff support)

How will we know we are on the right track?

How will others know what we are doing in & out of ESIP?

Cross-collaboration area connections

(Identify other areas that you consider cross collaboration. Are there things that you need us to provide in support the cross collaboration?)
