Data discovery, access, and mining are essential functions associated with any cyberinfrastructure that supports data-enabled science. The EarthCube Data Discovery, Access, and Mining (aka DDMA) cluster of activities will assess the state of the art in each of these areas and provide a roadmap for the future. Broad community engagement is a key aspect of this activity. Correspondingly, we will discuss strategies for embracing the needs of the so-called long tail of geoscientists in the areas of…See More
"Your white paper is on point. We are also dealing with both of the challenges you described, i.e., engaging the scientific communities ("experts") to collaborate more closely while also trying to figure out ways to make not only the…"
"I am not familiar with the details of the dataset you are describing, but our group of data mining and machine learning researchers in the Computer Science Department at the University of Minnesota also does research on "event" or change…"
"I had not heard this term before but it is very appropriate. Another project that is taking a step in that direction is the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX). I think in terms of the vision it is not too dissimilar from EarthCube (collaborative environment,…"
"This comment is more of an affirmation than a response. In short, I believe that Ian is right on point here. I can relate from anecdotal evidence that I have spent weeks and months myself and, more recently, had students who have spent too much time…"
This group focuses on innovative technology-based solutions for data management, data analytics, or any aspect of CI to support the geosciences. Groups or individuals may submit position papers or comment on submitted papers here.See More
This group is for discussions of user requirements gathering, descriptions of use cases (scenarios of the geoscience use of technology), and suggestions for ways of making sure EarthCube can meet user needs.See More
Which would you say is your main area of expertise?
Users who have a strong grasp of both the geoscience community's scientific and cyberinfrastructure needs, Postdocs and Graduate Students who have training in the geosciences or in a technology field with an interest and ability to participate in discussions related to geosciences cyberinfrastructure
