2021 NOAA Environmental Data Management Workshop

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Environmental Data Management Committee is proud to host the 11th annual NOAA Environmental Data Management Workshop (EDMW). The 2021 virtual conference for NOAA employees and affiliates includes workshops, networking opportunities, and a slate of presentations around the theme “Maximizing the Value of NOAA Data through Investment, Innovation, and Governance.”

From oceanographers to meteorologists, NOAA’s scientific community sees data growing in quantity, value, and usefulness. So, NOAA sets aside a week each year to focus on the future of data management. The agenda for the 11th NOAA Environmental Environmental Data Management Workshop (EDMW), hosted by NOAA’s Environmental Data Management Committee (EDMC), emphasizes data investment, innovation, and governance.

The 2021 workshop will be presented in an entirely virtual format. We are taking advantage of the opportunities that this online format affords, to both encourage broad participation in breakout sessions and to line up high caliber plenary speakers.There is no registration for any sessions, only for the plenaries.

Among the topics on the agenda for the 2021 summer workshop are:
* Transformative technologies and strategies to make NOAA’s environmental data collection AI-ready
* NOAA's efforts to better understand and engage users of our data and information
* Applications used to manage metadata inventories, repackage data in widely used data formats, streamline data archival processes, or visualize applications
* GIS technology and its use in data management, access, dissemination, and visualization
* The future of metadata
* NOAA’s cloud strategies
