Organised by Group on Earths Observations (GEO), the GEO Data Working Group will hold a weekly webinar to address both the theoretical and practical implementations of data sharing and management principles. They will present their newly released resources in an effort to support learning opportunities and the adoption of open knowledge principles in the development of Earth Observation tools and services, included in this is the GEO Work Programme. This virtual meeting will take place every Monday from 5th September to 24th October 2022, available online via Zoom.
On 26th September 2022, the topic of discussion will be ‘Accessibility’ under the revised GEO Data Management Principles DMP-2 ‘Online Access’. Accessibility is a key part of ensuring that Earth Observation tools and services are available to the wider scientific community.
The revised GEO Data Management Principles Implementation Guidelines state ‘Data will be accessible via online services, including, at a minimum, direct download but preferably user-customizable services for access, visualization and analysis.’ Examples of how this implementation will take place include; simple architecture, use of standards, and archived data repackaging/reformatting.
Bente Lilja Bye, BLB, Norway and Marie-Francoise Voidrot, and Open Geospatial Consortium will lead the dialogue series and contribute their expertise on the topics presented.
