An Organizational "Landscape" - EarthCube Liaison Team Story Map

Authors:

Abstract

EarthCube is an initiative of the US National Science Foundation to develop and implement a new data and knowledge management system that will allow for a better understanding and prediction of the Earth system, from the sun to the center of the Earth. More than 2,500 contributors are building this evolving, virtual data infrastructure, including Earth, ocean, polar, planetary, atmospheric, geospace, computer and social scientists, as well as educators, and data science professionals. The Liaison Team of EarthCube is a governance- level working group charged with linking EarthCube activities more widely to relevant organizations, collaboratives and initiatives worldwide. This includes activities in other scientific and technical domains, as well as the private sector, the education sector, and operational geoscience agencies. Tracking and engaging such efforts worldwide is a daunting task, particularly without some kind of summary knowledge or graphical depiction of the “where” and the “what” of data infrastructures, and from the perspective of both research domain (i.e., what part of the Earth, ocean, or atmosphere is the focus) and organizational domain (i.e., scholarly society, data facility, long-term funded research project with accompanying infrastructures, etc.). We have constructed an interactive web map of organizations worldwide (http://dusk.geo.orst.edu/ec-story), external to, but very relevant to the EarthCube initiative to assist the Liaison Team and other interested parties in identifying and fostering partnerships on a national/international level. Such a “map of an organizational landscape” may also be used by existing EarthCube project teams when developing follow-on or new proposals.
