Historically, Earth Science data have been made by and for scientists, but society now expects more access to and value from data and information. Earth Science can offer societal benefit by contributing to the resilience of communities, but there are many complex challenges that must be overcome, including inequity in the scientific process, gaps in data ethics and governance, mismatches of scale and focus, and a shortage of actionable information for communities. The ESIP Community Resilience cluster aims to support the Earth Science data community’s understanding of the challenges place-based communities face when applying Earth Science data to their resiliency efforts and seeks to offer a starting point to address the challenges presented. This poster was presented at the 2021 Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held virtually in July 2021.
