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!

Cooperative, Collaborative, and Community Science projects are increasingly becoming a valuable source of data for use in the management of living marine resources. These types of projects are providing unprecedented view of the ocean by filling in observational gaps that occur due to timing and cost of more traditional research cruises and academic fieldwork. However, with this opportunity to acquire critical data, a host of challenges need to be considered. For example, ownership of the data, QA/QC protocols, standardized metadata creation, distribution, and privacy concerns due to fishing locations. This session welcomes talks focused on projects that have solved these issues, are in the problem solving phase, or are in the initial planning phase.

Presentations (abstracts by session here):
1. Tracking Data on NOAA Citizen Science Projects and Their Outputs
- John McLaughlin
2. Making Remotely Operated Vehicle video data more accessible through annotations
- Ashley Marranzino, Katharine Egan, Matt Dornback, Megan Cromwell, Adrienne Copeland
3. Fishing for data on the west Florida shelf
- Brendan Turley
4. Crowdsourced Bathymetry Data - Addressing National Skepticism to Help Map the World’s Seafloor
- Jennifer Jencks, Georgianna Zelenak, Payton Cain, Chris Slater, Jesse Varner
