Rob Fatland and Shoshanna Budzianowski


8:30 to 10:30
New Collaborations

At this meeting Microsoft Research will present details of projects they are undertaking which have relevance to the Integrated Ocean Observing System. This will include a summary of their recent work on the development of ‘Eye on Earth’ (; a portal for public delivery of environmental data and the incorporation of data from citizen observing networks. The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss and develop new ideas for distribution and use of marine data and the potential for public contribution of observations.

11:00 to 1:00
Enhancing Observations

A meeting aimed at further developing the outcomes of the previous day’s workshop and determining how to take them forward. In particular, this meeting will seek to address three main themes:

  • Achieving optimum integration of the Pacific Northwest regional observing efforts and needs of the Federal Agencies represented on the Interagency Ocean Observation Committee;
  • Encouraging wider participation of stakeholders in the work of NANOOS;
  • Securing and sustaining improved engagement with all end-users of marine observations and forecasts.
