  1. Introduction and purpose
    1. Refine air quality data system vision and goals
    2. Continue communications started at the data summit
      1. Improved system interoperability and efficiencies
      2. Reducing redundancies
      3. Increase awareness of existing systems
    3. Client and user group identification
    4. Solicit advice on assessment approaches and system evolution
    5. Advise EPA and other organizations on Air quality data base IT issues
    6. Process for moving forward
      1. Conference calls, wiki, etc.
  2. Inventory of current air quality data bases
    1. Largely based on current wiki information (pre summit inputs and presentations)
  3. Inventory of data enabling or hub systems
    1. As above
  4. Mapping system connections and communications (based on 2 and 3)
    1. Spreadsheet (S. Falke’s) matrix and schematic(s) of system inflows and outflows
    2. Tabular condensing of system attributes
  5. Desired features/attributes in data bases and systems
    1. recommended data formatting and interface protocols
    2. preferred data manipulation and visualization attributes
  6. Assessment of system strengths and weaknesses
    1. Compare systems with attributes defined in (5)
    2. EPA systems assessment
    3. External
  7. Early near term opportunities
    1. EPA AMI IT cyberinfrastructure proposal
    2. HEI second stage
    4. nternal EPA
