The Earth Science Data System Working Groups (ESDSWG) is a NASA organization established under the auspices of NASA Headquarters in 2004. The chartered role of the ESDSWG focuses on the exploration and development of recommendations derived from pertinent community insights of NASA's heterogeneous and distributed Earth science data systems.

The ESDSWG is comprised of working groups organized around key technology and information system issues. Each Working Group functions independently establishing their own work plans on germane data system issues and topics. The ESDSWG members are drawn from a broad range of NASA-funded science and technology projects, NASA information technology experts, affiliated contractor staff and other interested community members from academia and industry.

New Working Group Proposals
ESDSWG is currently accepting proposals for new working groups. Proposals can be submitted by any member of the ESDSWG community and may be a follow-on activity to one of the current working groups, a response to one of the ESDIS Priorities listed on the proposal wiki page, or something entirely new.
A reminder that any NASA-funded attendees who are not on a grant must register in the NASA Conference Tracking System (NCTS) and receive NCTS approval before they can participate in the ESDSWG annual meeting. The JPL folks will need to register via the JPL unified forecasting system. It is important to get this done as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The NCTS Code for the meeting is 27310-17.
The 2017 ESDSWG meeting will be held at the Loews Hotel, Annapolis, MD March 21-23. As an off-site meeting, we are required to submit estimates for number of attendees and NASA-funded travel costs. A message has already been send to to current working group participants and attendees at the 2016 ESDSWG asking them to let us know if they plan to attend the 2017 meeting. This will also help us get the right number of rooms allocated for the hotel room block. If I somehow manged to miss you,…
