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!

In March 2022, the FY 2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act included language supporting NOAA Open Data Dissemination, formerly the Big Data Program, “to improve public access to climate change data and to transition NOAA data to the cloud.” Since 2019, NODD has been providing operational support for free egress to the public on NOAA data via three cloud partners Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services. The benefits are multifold, including cost avoidance to NOAA, increased computational capability with the data already in the cloud, and democratization of NOAA data. The ease of cloud-based access to big environmental data, often the only source of the access to some real-time data, reduces users’ effort in data aggregation, allowing users to innovate their data analytics and technical engineering via cloud based tools.
Leveraging scalability of cloud solutions and tools enhances data discovery and identifies connections for technical innovation.  NODD’s recent activities have been focused on enhancing interoperability, creating cloud-based metrics and user engagement by working with partners and end users. This session provides perspectives on these recent efforts, with speakers from a NOAA Cloud Pathfinder Project, NOAA cloud partner, and end users on benefits of access to NOAA data via the cloud.
