The ESIP Federation (http://esipfed.org) is a virtual organization of more than 100 earth science information providers, including the large NASA and NOAA data archives, several federal laboratories, university projects, and private and non-profit corporations. Many of these members are turning to Drupal as the framework to share content and data.
The ESIP Federation has a Drupal Working Group (DruWG) where Drupal knowledge and issues are shared internally. This external group is where we connect with external organizations interested in the Earth Sciences and share our knowledge with the broader Drupal community. Our goal is to support active discussions about using the Drupal framework to support large-scale government agency websites and data sharing in the Earth Sciences sector.
The Details of the meeting are on the ESIP Commons (Event URL)... We will have a set of demonstrations from NASA and NOAA Drupal web developers and a special guest: Angie Byron (webchick), who will be talking about Drupal 8 and then getting into discussions in the afternoon unconference.
We invite all local Drupalistas to join in! The Friend Center at UNC charges us $70 per day per person... so we have to pass along a one day fee ($70) to people who are not registered for the main ESIP meeting.
THERE will be remote participation (live streaming and some interactivity).
I ran a session at last week's Drupalcamp Atlanta on "Talking to Web Services" (http://goo.gl/y9eWD), which included an initial "proof of concept" integration with the ECHO service (http://earthdata.nasa.gov/echo). The slides are on slideshare (http://goo.gl/gHdGw) and I'll post up the video when its available (in around a month)Read more
Hello ESIPers... we have a great demo on Wednesday, October 17 at 11am PT, 2pm ET.
Please mark your calendars!
ROSE-MARIE GONZALES from JPL/Raytheon will demo the work they did to build the Earth Data Federated Content Tool in Drupal.
Here is some background:
The Earth Data Federated Content Tool (FCT) supports sharing and re-use of Earth Data content; sharing of Earthdata.nasa.gov content with the DAACs, sharing of DAACs content with Earth Data and sharing of content from DAAC to DAACs.
Looking for input as to what people want to explore at the Badcamp session, Science on Drupal. What is your vision for doing science using Drupal? What successes have you had? What problems do you face? We can build a new platform for Science 2.0 using Drupal and collective passion.
If you will be a Badcamp 2012, you can add your comments to the session: http://2012.badcamp.net/program/sessions/science-drupal
Hope to see you in Berkeley, or to see your comments below. We will do our best to address them.
Here is the video from the Webex (sorry for any audio issues) about the making of Energy.gov. The ESIP Federation wants to thank Phase2 Technology for sharing this really valuable knowledge, and for contributing this code back to the community.
Hello ESIP Drupalistas and open-source CMS Internet mavens... (Please excuse cross posting).
We have a special demo scheduled for next wednesday's call:
Wed, September 19, 1pm – 2pm (Central Time)
The Team from Phase2 Technology will be describing their work and taking questions.
This will be very interesting to many who are looking to host multiple sites with shared content...
Looking forward to your participation in the call.
