||Keynote - Metamorphosis: Environmental Data Management Transitions from Adolescence to Adulthood
Dr William Hooke (AMS/Assoc Exec Dir)
|Four big trends are forcing environmental data management (EDM) to
mature. Two are the challenges of adulthood. Big jobs need doing.
Two are the new tools of adulthood. They require mastering, but with
that mastery comes opportunity. Environmental data management has
never mattered more. But though the EDM of the future will share
the DNA of the EDM of the past, the two will be no more similar than
a butterfly is to the caterpillar it came from.
