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.

Across geoinformatics, many initiatives deserve careful consideration and adoption to promote interoperability across our shared missions and projects. Because there are so many specifications for our discipline to evaluate and adopt, documentation and guidelines that streamline this process are highly beneficial. The ESIP “Science on Schema.org” cluster has been developing and testing a set of guidelines that help data repositories and other content providers adopt the schema.org vocabulary for publishing metadata about data resources in their HTML web documents. The goal of these guidelines is to document shared conceptualizations surrounding the description of scientific datasets and their respective data repositories for the purpose of providing consistent, machine actionable metadata using web publishing standards. In doing so, adopters achieve greater discovery of scientific datasets across the web from large scale search providers to local, domain specific metadata aggregators.

At the 2021 ESIP Winter Meeting, the community examined whether an ESIP Assembly Endorsement of Science-on-Schema.org guidelines documentation was useful and applicable. After discussion, it was decided that the Schema.org cluster would submit an updated version of the guidelines plus supporting materials for ESIP endorsement at or soon after the 2021 ESIP Summer Meeting. This session will: 1) present the ESIP endorsement package of the latest Science-on-Schema.org guidelines v.1.3; 2) host presentations from guidelines adopters regarding their experiences; and 3) gather feedback from attendees on ways to improve the submission package.
