For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, forming a community dedicated to making Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of the July meeting is "Data for All People: From Generation to Use and Understanding."

Registered attendees can join us virtually at https://2022julyesipmeeting.qiqochat.com/.

Notes Doc

While the past 2+ years have been massively disruptive for all of us, many research groups and organizations have continued to make significant progress in approaches to managing data coming off uncrewed vehicles. The Drone cluster would like to use this in-person meeting to give updates on drone data progress from within our ESIP Cluster, to invite other updates from collaborators and colleagues working on sUAS data, and to regroup energy for future endeavors and determine best pathways for Drone Cluster work.

The session will be run as a panel, with short update presentations from many of our key members after which a facilitated discussion will be led covering both the results presented and discussion about what the group sees as key remaining challenges and how best to regroup energy for future endeavors of the Drone Cluster. Of particular note, our colleagues in the Semantic Tech cluster, the EnviroSensing cluster, and the new direction of the Ag and Climate Cluster -- along with the new knowledge-graph group -- are all leading related efforts that drone users and Drone Cluster members could collaborate on. We will strive to bring these perspectives forward before the July Meeting to discuss during our session. Additionally, there was significant interest from related groups outside of ESIP -- particularly in the recent NSF FAIROS RCN proposal call, which many Drone Cluster members participated in, and the AGU is currently also pioneering projects that also have relevance to this cluster. These members will also be encouraged to participate in contributing updates for our panel discussion.
Recommended Ways to Prepare: No preparation necessary (although we will prepare our speakers very well!)
