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.

Since the ESIP Winter meeting, the Air Quality Cluster has been hard at work developing several use cases for air quality data and tools. We are now ready to try developing some applications, and will be kicking off a competitive application development effort at our Summer Meeting session. Esri, an ESIP member, and the company behind ArcGIS, has generously offered us the use of the ArcGIS Online (AGOL) framework for this hackathon competition, providing accounts and credits to hackathon participants to support development activities for a full month. The objective is to develop AQ data visualization applications that will aid both citizens and local governments in decision making related to Air Quality issues.

Using the AQ Cluster's use case as a guide, we will form three core project teams that will compete to develop the best AQ visualization application. We will conduct preparatory work during the May and June AQC meetings, to help participants pre-register, set up AGOL accounts, and get briefed on using AGOL. At the Summer Meeting session, done remotely, we’ll break into teams. Each team will develop an application concept together an implementation plan. We'll come together at the end of the session, and each team will provide a brief report. At the August 26 AQ Cluster meeting, teams will present their application to a set of ESIP-selected judges with prizes awarded for most effective and most creative. A more complete description of the concept can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/19ajXwjepWzaXv0AKIXZqKnEW8nkJ7KmQC3rd1bwVuPk/edit?usp=sharing
