NOAA EDMW 2022 has ended

Envisioning the Future of the NOAA Data Enterprise

September 12-16, 2022


Thank you for your interest in the 2022 NOAA EDMW. The Workshop is over, but we’re excited to announce that the session recordings are available! Just click on a session, then under the Description section click on the "Session Recording Here" link. Be patient, it can take up to 20-30 seconds for the video to display.

The Workshop featured a diverse group of sessions and presentations that cover NOAA’s strategic goals. In addition, ‘Workshop Wednesday’ provided multiple opportunities to learn about techniques, tools, and experiences that help us achieve our data and strategic goals.

We would like to especially thank everyone who submitted sessions and abstracts! This workshop wouldn’t be possible without the great submissions from our colleagues!

The value of NOAA data is realized when it is used by people to make decisions. Knowing what data exists within NOAA, who are the data users, and what decisions are made based on the data can help us to better understand what roles NOAA data play in the decision making process. It also helps to maximize the value of NOAA's data by ensuring that the data are easily accessible and provided in the right format at the right time. Lessons learned by engaging users should play a role in guiding research and development efforts to improve NOAA data products. This session will highlight NOAA's efforts to better understand and engage the users of the data and information that NOAA produces. It will also present the benefits and outcomes that these users derive from the use of NOAA data and information.
