The Earth and Space Science Knowledge Commons: Space Weather in ESIP
presentationposted on 14.01.2022, 14:36 by Ryan McGranaghanRyan McGranaghan
ESIP has rich ontologies and semantic technologies for the Earth Sciences, however the space sciences are increasingly inextricable from advancing the science in our community. There is a marked lack of semantic technology maturity to integrate the space-based perspective. We launched a new initiative to address one of the vital components of improving semantic technologies in the space sciences: glossary harmonization. We describe those efforts, including important artifacts that reach all of ESIP: new approaches for cultivating collective virtual collaboration and curricular materials for performing glossary harmonization. Finally, we will discuss the role this work plays in broader activities, including: 1) the NASA Heliophysics KNOWledge (Helio-KNOW) project; 2) the NASA Center for HelioAnalytics; and 3) the notion of an Earth and Space Science Knowledge Commons. This presentation was given during the 2022 ESIP January meeting held virtually in January 2022.
