Several CDI FY18 Funded Projects will be presenting their on-going projects at the upcoming Earth Science Information Partners Summer Meeting in Tucson, “Data for Our Changing Earth: Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data.”
This is a great chance for the CDI teams to share their successes and challenges, and to discuss how the CDI can help integrate their outcomes and promote their lessons learned. Everyone is invited virtually, the session will be broadcast on GoToMeeting and will be recorded. (You can see the full ESIP schedule of many exciting topics at http://meetings.esipfed.org/.)
Our CDI Session is on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, from 11:30a-1:00p Tucson time (2:30-4:00p Eastern time, because Tucson, Arizona does not do Daylight Savings time)
Description: The aspiration of many data organizations that fund seed projects, including the USGS Community for Data Integration, is to support integrated, reusable, and sustainable tools and data. This year, the CDI funded several projects under the theme of risk assessment and hazard vulnerability, with the goal of coordinating and integrating the outputs. Project teams will meet during this breakout session, which occurs midway through the funding period, to report on progress, learn from each other, and coordinate to optimize their outputs. The selected projects are improving accessibility to drought modeling, hazards and assets data (for example, invasive species, landslides, and infrastructure data), and tools for knowledge extraction and data documentation. Integrating data and resources on hazards and assets improves our ability to assess strategic risk, predict future hazards impact, and realize the socioeconomic value of earth science data.
