For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth observation data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth observations more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of this year’s meeting is Leading Innovation in Earth Science Data Frontiers.

Building a primer for biological data standards

The ESIP Biological Data Standards Cluster was formed after the ESIP-IOOS Biological Data Standards Workshop held in July 2020. At that workshop a list of action items was created, and the cluster voted on the list to determine the highest priority ones for the cluster to work on. Building a decision tree was one of the most popular options. In the cluster's efforts to build a decision tree to guide data managers who are new to biological data standards, we have realized a decision tree would become a decision forest. Instead we have shifted to creating an infographic that will serve as a primer to data managers who are new to biological data standards as they select the one(s) most useful for their needs. For this session we will seek input from the ESIP community on building a primer for biological data standards.

Session Goals:
  • Get more terrestrial/aquatic folks involved in the cluster
  • Get feedback from the broader ESIP community on the primer
  • Build awareness about the cluster and the primer
  • Determine a pathway to a final product
How to Prepare for this Session: 
Think about any biological data standards that you are familiar with and repositories that require certain standards for data to be shared, especially terrestrial/aquatic focused data repositories.
