Earth Science Information Partners




2019 ESIP Winter Meeting

 The 2019 ESIP Winter Meeting will be January 15-17, 2019 in Bethesda, MD.

Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) is an open, networked community that brings together science, data and information technology practitioners.


ESIP is supported by NASA, NOAA,  USGS and 110+ member organizations.

Member Highlight: AGU

Reason AGU participates in ESIP: ESIP is a valuable Earth and space science community. Through the ESIP network of experts, data- and informatics-related problems affecting the entire community are addressed head-on. AGU recognizes the importance of this work and values the feedback of ESIP members to ensure that the programs it supports and develops meet the specialized needs of organizations and individuals in the geoscience community.

Member Highlight: CUAHSI

Why CUAHSI participates in ESIP: CUAHSI joined ESIP to cooperate with other data facilities to collaborate on technical implementations of data sharing solutions.

Member Highlight: Data Semantics Laboratory

The DaSe Lab researches information technology for data sharing, integration and reuse. We are interested in Earth science information data as it provides an application area to inform our research directions and solutions. We hope that ESIP participation will strengthen existing Earth science collaborations and help us forge new ones.
