  • Discuss the agenda of the meeting and the break out groups in Santa Fe.
    • Barry - JPL policy requires that everything go through document review. Barry can talk about ISO and ISO quality if desirable. Barry is a software engineer (not a scientist per se) that generates data for scientists.
    • Carol - 3 talks in the plenary. Greg Stensaas will give overview of multiple quality definitions, Bill Michener - DataONE, LTER use of quality measures, Panel discussion quality needs across various communities.
    • Carol contacted some of plenary speakers to engage in IQ session. Glenn Rutledge and Nick Mangus - will leave before Thursday and not able to participate. Kerstin Lenhert still pending.
    • Erin - Perhaps Unidata for precipitation? (Mohan Ramamurthy or someone he recommends?)
    • Greg L. - Unidata is a broker, not really a specific community representative
    • Greg L. - Semantic web/IQ session will be before the community needs session and won't have an idea of use cases until after.
    • Carol - One of the four people from NEON should present.
    • Barry Weiss - We need someone with experience in developing ontologies.
    • Barry - Ted Habermann is doing a quality workshop on Tuesday, Greg is plannng to ask Ted to do something on Thursday as well.
    • Greg L. - Rob, any suggestions who to invite to info session?

    • Chris Lynnes and Barry Weiss are talking about quality at SPG
    • Greg L. and Barry will participate in SPG
  • ISO Data Quality Discussion
    • Barry - Quality is one of the major reasons for metadata.
    • Greg L. - Europeans don't want to use ISO because it is still too fluid and has not been improved yet.
    • Barry - Temporal Consistency in data quality - whatever ISO tells us about temporal consistency is not formulated enough, has an opinion gap that needs to be filled.
  • Actions
    • Greg L. - will try to prepare better list of quality indicators so we could have lively discussions about what community thinks about quality indicators. - For second discussion breakout.
    • Greg will send a message to Ted Habermann, also contact Gregg Stensas to invite him for Thursday's discussion to ask him to participate in the conversation about QA4EO.
    • Carol - contacted Steve Berrick for NASA quality guidelines and will post it on wiki once it is received.
    • Carol emailed NEON too about possibly speaker.
