Welcome to the Summer Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2017 theme is Strengthening Ties Between Observations and User Communities. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years.

Developing an Information Management Code Repository

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We are proposing to develop an Information Management Code Repository. The code in the repository will focus on data formatting, quality control, automating ingestion, metadata generation, and implementation of best practices for data archiving. General data manipulation routines may be of interest to the science community as well as information managers.

The code repository will be implemented in Github, and code will be freely available for anyone to use. For this code repository to be successful, the code must be well documented, discoverable, and ‘hardened or generalized’ such that it can be readily re-used. In this working session, we propose to define best practices for the code repository. Some of the issues to be addressed during this working group meeting are:

1) development of a controlled vocabulary to organize the code and aid in code discovery
2) code organization within Github
3) repository governance: who will be evaluating the code to determine if it is ready to be archived, and what are the criteria (e.g.,
https://www.software.ac.uk/sites/default/files/SSI-SoftwareEvaluationCriteria.pdf http://testbed.esipfed.org/sites/default/files/2015_AIST_Evaluations_Overview.pdf )
4) metadata format for code (e.g., https://github.com/NCEAS/eml , https://github.com/codemeta/codemeta/blob/master/README.md)

This code library will be supported by the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI).
