EDI at ESA 2019

The 2019 Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America was held in Louisville, KY (11-16 August 2019). Building on the success of Data Fair Activities at AGU Meetings, EDI again this year led the effort to hold a Data Help Desk at ESA 2019.  Data curators Kristin Vanderbilt and Margaret O’Brien (and guest Stevan Earl, LTER/ASU) were joined by informatics experts from GBIF, iDigBio, ESIP, Arctic Data Center, DataONE and NEON  in answering a range of questions about available tools and data services. O’Brien and Vanderbilt also organized a storytelling-style “Inspire” session, Assembling Data for Synthesis: The Good, Bad and In-Between, which brought together researchers and data scientists attempting to assemble data for synthesis, or to harmonize data for targeted databases, web applications or displays. For more information see here.
