December 1st, 2015 Telecon: Discussion Notes
Bill's notes from Dec'15 telecon

Finalize Our ESIP Winter Meeting Sessions

Session I: Climate Resilience Toolkit Case Study Workshop

  • 90 Minute Session: Workshop

Introduction:

  • Overview of how the Workshop will run
  • Quick Introduction to the CRT - (Bar will contact LuAnn)
  • Presenters (Paul Stackhouse and Jason Barnett) will introduce Web Tools and Data (availability and uses) - Overview


Breakout into Workshop:

  • Look at the current work and transform it into a CRT Case Study with the Template (very general outline - narrative/storyline)
  • Energy - Paul Stackhouse “leads” -- Could do many narratives - maybe choose one or do two if schedule/timing allows
  • Agriculture - Jason Barnett “leads” -- Narrative from Africa and Crop Modeling


Look more closely: Both areas of CRT might be appropriate for Use Cases:

  • Case Study - “Taking Action”
  • Tools - Can map back to the “Taking Action” narrative





Session II New Frontiers in Ag/Energy Data Session

  • 90 Minute Session: Breakout Session: ~4 speakers

Introduction:

  • Bar could introduce?

4 Speakers:

  • Maxwell Messinger - UASs (Confirmed)
  • Courtney Hammond Wagner - Webtools / Mobile Apps (Mostly Confirmed)
  • Lindsay Barbieri - UASs (Confirmed)
  • Ray Hunt - USDA UASs (Bill will contact?)


Based on the speakers, the focus of the session has narrowed down:

  • Will not include data management specifically
  • Will focus on Ag, not energy

Bar will update this in the Session Description




We also briefly discussed:

  • Coordination with the other two drone-related sessions: Drone Cluster and Education Committee sessions
  • Changing of Student Fellows from Lindsay Barbieri to Christopher Beltz in January
