Collaboration Areas

As a community-driven organization, the ESIP Federation is an independent forum for addressing topics of interest to many in the Earth science data and technology community. Participation in the ESIP Federation is open to organizations that are involved with Earth science data and who wish to work across communities to expose, gather and enhance in-house capabilities in support of their organization’s own data management programs that promote their broader agency mission.

The work of the ESIP Federation is advanced through collaborations among members who contribute their expertise to resolving common problems of the community. Partners participate together through the work of Committees, Working Groups and Clusters. To be aware of the general happenings around ESIP, sign up for weekly Monday Updates and to send to the ESIP Community, ESIP-All list-serv.

These groups can be categorized into three larger collaborative areas that further define the work of the ESIP Federation. Anyone with an interest in these areas is welcome to participate in the monthly telecons. Information on the committees and when they meet can be found on their respective pages
