EarthCube Forms of Council of Funded Projects

 

 

 

 

Calling all current and past EarthCube project participants!  







Please join our newly formed EarthCube Council of Funded Projects (ECFP) to have a more direct voice in EarthCube planning and implementation over the coming years. We expect the group to have lively discussions of  geosciences  data access, geosciences workflow support, component interoperability, standards and specifications, long-term sustainability of Geoscience cyberInfrastructure, and more.  

Read more about the new council in a blog post here, written by the EarthCube leadership Council Chair Ken Rubin.

If you are interested in joining, please send an email to James Davies at jdavies@ucar.edu.

Data Visualization in the Geosciences Survey Request - A Message from Flyover Country



Computer technology has transformed the way we visualize our data.  As part of the activities of the Flyover Country project (http://flyovercountry.io), we have drafted a survey asking people in the paleosciences (broadly) to help us understand how researchers represent their data, and how we might better  represent complex spatio-temporal data in the future. As an expert, your feedback is critically important for helping to inform this discussion.

Survey link: https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6sPMhUhBW73YXid





The survey takes approximately 20 minutes (sjg: I did it in 19!).  You will be asked fo rbackground on your specific research domain, shown some visualizations and asked whether you have used them. You will also be asked about the sources of your research data and your interaction with various Community Curated Data Resources.
We've made an effort to keep this survey as short as possible.  Twenty minutes is a significant contribution of your time, and we appreciate your time and effort.  Your collective feedback will be shared with the community to help advance the practice of visualization in the paleogeosciences.

Thanks!

Shane Loeffler - University of Minnesota

Flyover Country is supported by NSF Geoinformatics and the NSF EarthCube Program through awards NSF-1550913, 1550855, and 1550843.

Contribute to NSF's Cloud Research Workshop



NSF is sponsoring a workshop on Next Generation Cloud Research Infrastructure November 11-12 in Princeton, NJ. They are asking prospective participants to submit information about how they might contribute to the workshop. This could be in terms of pervious experience, research, ideas, and more.
