User Intent model (Discussion with Microsoft*)[edit | edit source]
- Sameer from Microsoft discussed "user intent modeling" at the charette
- Is there something to the concept of "user intent"?
- Users have to know about the Earth Science data search engine before they can use (must be found from Google/Bing)
Discussion of role of Discovery services in ESC and EarthCube[edit | edit source]
- EarthCube not yet talking technologies, mostly process...
- We should jump in again once EarthCube is ready for implementation

What's next for DCPs?[edit | edit source]
DCP-5: Valids and Restrictions for Query Elements[edit | edit source]
- This is going to be further revised using the OpenSearch parameters extension
- Updates coming soon!
- Side Topic:
- We need to start considering sustainability of this cluster
- We also need to start being more aggressive about deciding and implementing the DCPs
- Some may be concerned without how much influence they should have on DCP decisions
- Best Practice: Not opposed should equal a yes! (Though, if you can't understand a proposal or why its needed, then it may not be good!)
DCP-7: Error Handling Best Practices for Discovery Response[edit | edit source]
- Can't discuss without Hook...
