  • Earth System Grid Center for Enabling Technologies (Type I), Dean N. Williams, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California.
  • ISciences (Type III), Lisa Emmer, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
  • NASA Planetary Data System (Type I), Steve Hughes, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.
  • Satellite Educators Association (Type III), Paula Arvedson, Pasadena, California.
"The ESIP Federation continues to attract Earth science data and information experts to its membership. Our diversity and ability to work across disciplines, sectors and federal agencies has enabled this community to advance in ways greater than the sum of its parts." says Dr. James Frew, ESIP Federation President. "The ESIP Federation's reputation is growing as the place for community-driven collaboration in the Earth sciences."

Now in its second decade, the ESIP Federation has 115 partners representing a wide range of Earth science data interests. ESIP Federation partners include Earth science data centers, environmental research groups, practitioners in the application of environmental data, educators and technologists. Across these diverse interests, public, private and
non-profit organizations are represented. 

The ESIP Federation is a consortium of Earth science data and technology professionals spanning government (NASA, NOAA, EPA, USGS), academia and the private sectors (both commercial and nonprofit). Our organization is dedicated to transforming research data and information into useful and usable data and information products for decision makers, policy makers and the public. Initiated by NASA in 1997, the ESIP Federation provides data, products and services to decision makers and researchers in public and private settings. The Foundation for Earth Science provides administrative
and staff support to the ESIP Federation.
