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!

1. Stakeholder Panel: Katie Latanich, NGO and Stakeholders

Building partnerships for data progress

Successful digital products are a combination of technical and people skills. They require data infrastructure as well as ways to incorporate the needs and perspectives of end users, legal and policy staff, and other external stakeholders and partners. As NOAA advances its internal efforts to advance data innovations, expand data governance, and deploy next-generation ocean information tools, the public is raising their expectations for modern, user-friendly products and data transparency. If we need more voices at the table, and more awareness of the benefits of investments in modern data services, public-private partnerships can offer a way to move forward.
