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 17th October 2022, the topic of discussion will be ‘Curation’ in the context of the revised GEO Data Management Principles DMP9-DMP10. This includes the subtopics ‘Data Review and Reprocessing’ and ‘Persistent and Resolvable Identifiers’.
DMP9 is defined as ‘Data will be managed to perform corrections and updates in accordance with reviews, and to enable reprocessing as appropriate; where applicable this shall follow established and agreed procedures.’ Under the revised GEO Data Management Principles, curation refers to archiving, management, authentication, preservation, retrieval, and representation of data recovery and retrieval.
