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.

Marine Data Cluster’s Controlled Vocabularies Decision Tree Development - Working Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Bring a specific marine observation from a dataset and tell us how you choose an appropriate controlled vocabulary!

Attendees will help explore and develop a decision tree to help choose which controlled vocabulary/vocabularies a data manager/scientist should use to ensure their marine data follow the FAIR principles. We will be testing out an innovative approach to community source these decisions through a combination of Google Sheets, Python, and a decision tree generator (scikit-learn and dtreeviz). The session will start off with an overview of the effort followed by breakout groups, where participants will draft out their thought process for selecting a controlled vocabulary for a specific marine observation of their choosing. We will then reconvene and start consolidating the information from the breakout groups which will start to populate the marinedata-vocabulary-guidance repository.

 The goals of the session are to use an innovative approach to community source information to:
  • Identify the recommended vocabularies to choose from for marine observations.
  • Identify the entry points into the decision tree.
  • Identify the key questions to ask when selecting a vocabulary.
  • Start a vocabulary guidance for marine data document.
