A working meeting to discuss standardization of the various casting standards: collection, service, data granules, and events/topics. There will be a few short demos of applications based on casting. Feature requests and other feedback are desired from the community.  +
Brokering is a means of mediating interactions across heterogeneous multidisciplinary data sources and services. A distinguishing characteristic is that brokering shifts the burdens of enabling interoperability from users and providers to a third party service. Brokering can take many forms and involve many different types of services: translating and interpreting between search protocols, controlled vocabularies and natural languages, business processing models, etc. This session will report on current EarthCube activities related to brokering, explore some of the current brokering approaches and implementations, and look a bit into some of the future types of brokering possibilities that may help in fully achieving global multi-disciplinary data sharing.  +
Cloud Computing is becoming a promising computing infrastructure to support Earth sciences. With a variety of commercial and open source cloud solutions available, a 360 degree test of the cloud capability for managing computing infrastructure and supporting Earth sciences are needed to guide the field for adopting cloud computing. This session invites the two most comprehensive government studies of cloud computing for geospatial sciences to present the results. The presentation includes: *Mike Little, NASA SMD Cloud Test Brief (Virtual) *Doug Nebert, FGDC GeoCloud, (Virtual) *Phil Yang, GMU, Cloud Readiness for Earth Sciences *Confirm with Mike/Doug about another cloud readiness test in NASA Through both overall and technical detailed presentation, we hope this session can help shed some lights about how to assess and adopt cloud computing for Earth science efforts, such as EarthCube, Digital Earth, Earth Simulator, NEX, and other similar efforts.  +
Cloud computing offers not only a computing infrastructure but also an environment for our current systems and data with an elastic and on demand characteristics that enables us to tackle computing problems that were previously (not possible) limited by our local computing/storage resources. This session includes four 20 minutes technical presentations focusing on design and implementations of cloud-enabled applications/services that utilize distributed computing technologies like Eucalyptus, EC2, Azure, Hadoop/MapReduce, etc. The four projects identified include: *Mike Gangl, PO.DAAC - on the DMAS federate architecture using ZooKeeper *George Chang, LMMP - on using Hadoop *Phil Yang, GMU and Karl Benedict, UNM - Utilize Cloud Computing to Enable Dust Storm Forecasting  +
E-Science Drupal Lab (new name): The ESIP Drupal Working Group (DruWG), together with the NASA Science on Drupal Central (ACCESS) Project will be convening a day-long Drupal Lab with demos, tutorials, talks from Drupal developers, code-sprints, and yes: beer. The Lab will also invite local Madison Drupal experts to explore issues for doing earth science data-rich websites using Drupal. The Lab will start Monday afternoon, with an evening pub event, and then continue Tuesday AM, through lunch. STAY TUNED for more information up until the week before the meeting!  +
ESIP partners use data in many in formats and across many communities. These communities have different documentation needs and address those needs using different standards and conventions. ESIP exists at the crossroads of these communities, a natural "marketplace" where many dialects can be heard. It is a perfect place to identify needs shared across multiple communities and build understanding of how those needs are addressed. This understanding, in turn, facilitates sharing of documentation and the data they describe across communities. This workshop will address documentation dialects used across ESIP. Candidates include ISO, FGDC, DIF, CF, ACDD, ECHO, and EML. Members of the community that can represent these dialects in the discussion are needed.  +
GIS Web Services Hosting Environment project's goal is to provide a centralized hosting platform for geospatial data providers to upload and publish their data via Open Geospatial Consortium-compliant web services. The benefits of this approach include giving all data providers access to a common platform enabling standards-based, interoperable data sharing and publishing, without needing to configure and maintain the software at the program office level. To minimize costs and maximize potential for scalability, it leverages popular open source GIS software packages that will be customized to work within a enterprise computing environment.  +
In continuing our geospatial sessions, we will focus on demonstrating innovation through geospatial application for integrated discovery, access, and analysis through the use of GIS and remote sensing data.  +
Join us as we take a collaboration framework out for a spin! We'll select from an existing framework (NASA Earth Exchange, HubZero, RAMADDA, etc.) to see if we can do any collaborative work with science data within the framework. Bring your datasets, data tools, or use cases!  +
Join us in a working meeting to plan next steps to move forward with the Earth Science Collaboratory. We will be looking for and planning actionable initiatives, with input from all four tracks and focused on the theme of enabling science innovation. Topics may include: the role of human factors in innovation, leveraging advancements from the Earth Cube effort, promising collaboration technologies, looking forward to the NASA CMAC collaboration winners, and (Your Idea Here).  +
One of the useful modules in Drupal is the service module that allows different clients to efficiently interact with Drupal content. We will demonstrate mobile app development using the service module. The strength of “Drupal + Mobile app” will be discussed.  +

Several topics for the Air Quality community to discuss, including: Metadata creation and adopting metadata fields Metadata publishing and coordination among ongoing efforts Air quality data best practices  +
Study of nine different identifier schemes by the Data Stewardship Committee resulted in recommendations for use of certain schemes for data objects. The recommendations were tempered by the caveat that implementation of the nine schemes could change the recommendations. For the second phase of the study. a test was set up to implement the nine identifier schemes by assigning identifiers to two different data sets and at least some of the components of the data sets. This presentation will present the findings based on that test for discussion by the various ESIP committees and clusters interested in furthering the discussion of identifiers for data objects, and for non-data objects.  +
The ESIP Federation has grown its membership during the past several years and has evolved its activities during the same time. For those new to the ESIP Federation or anyone interested in learning more about its activities, join us for an overview presentation that will highlight the history, current activities, opportunities for involvement and how to become a partner.  +
The NOAA Data Management Dashboard is an effort to improve NOAA data interoperability through leveraging best practices and standards. Reports that give an overview of data, data services and metadata that are available through NOAA data catalogs will be created. Requests to spatial services such as OGC, OpenDAP, ISO metadata are returned into the NOAA Google Cloud Unified Messaging Service  +

The U.S. Geoscience Information Network (USGIN) is a framework for sharing geoscience data in a distributed network based on a collection of open-source applications, standards, procedures, and protocols for data sharing. USGIN is web-based, distributed, open-source, and interoperable. This workshop will provide a case study of USGIN in action through the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) State Geological Survey Contributions to the National Geothermal Data System.  +
