ESIP and OGC Coverage Processing and Analysis Sprint Day 1
The Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) are convening an agile development sprint to advance APIs for analytics on coverages, arrays, and gridded data. This will be a key event in the development of OGC APIs for geospatial resources and building blocks for community APIs. The event will be co-located with the 2020 ESIP Winter Meeting, which draws Earth Science data and information professionals from across the public, private, and academic sectors. A previous OGC API Hackathon in June 2019 advanced common elements across OGC APIs for Features, Coverages, Map Tiles, Processing and Catalogs. The next sprints are advancing specific elements of the individual APIs.
Please note this is a 2-day event (1/6/20-1/7/20).

Accelerating convergence of earth and space data in teaching and learning through participatory design.
Bringing remote sensing and astronomical data to life for students is a challenge for earth and space science educators. This session will engage teachers and scientists in a participatory design process that will demonstrate the power of data science, identify challenges in teaching and learning, and seek pathways to develop next generation tools and curricula to close the gap between science practice and education. This workshop extends an NSF convergence accelerator for earth and space data and will also help inform an upcoming NSF-funded workshop titled: Data Science for High School Computer Science: Identifying Needs, Gaps and Resources.
We are proposing a working session, working directly with teachers on tool development using a participatory design kind of approach. The ESIP Education Committee is working to identify DC-area schools to work with over the long term, and this session could be a good first step in that relationship. For this workshop, a minimum of three DC-area teachers will work with ESIP Education Committee members and facilitators.

Takeaways
  • There are many tools that already exist but they need to be more easily connected to the curriculum
  • There are constraints to which tools schools can use because they cannot have blogging features and present other security risks. Also, they have limited technological availability

Participatory design and evaluation of a 3D-Printed Automatic Weather Station to explore hardware, software and data needs for community-driven decision making
The development of low-cost, 3D-printed weather stations aims to revolutionize the way communities collect long-term data about local weather phenomenon, as well as develop climate resilience strategies to adapt to the impacts of increasingly uncertain climate trends. This session will engage teachers and scientists in the evaluation and participatory design of the IoTwx 3D-printed weather station that is designed to be constructed and extended by students in middle and high school. We aim to explore the full spectrum of the station from construction (from pre-printed parts), to data collection and development of learning activities, to analysis of scientific phenomenon within the data. The stations also represent a unique opportunity to develop community-based strategies to extend the capabilities of the platform, and in the session we are encouraging full discussion of data collection and sensing technologies of specific relevance to communities adopting the stations.

In this working session, we will work directly with teachers on evaluation and development using a participatory design approach to stimulate and encourage relationships between ESIP Education Committee members and teachers.

Preparing for this Session: TBD

Takeaways
  • Very valuable for the schools and community. It is an opportunity to include multiple departments within the school system (engineering, computer science, maths, earth science, etc.)
  • Need to understand the constraints that school systems may present: security, wifi, processing power, cloud access, only required for part of the year
