Talk by Dr. Eric Sproles (Earth Sciences Dept, MSU)

Data, Spatial, and Earth Science are increasingly interconnected, providing new paradigms and opportunities to advance scientific inquiry and research.  However successfully integrating these disciplines is not defined by a single, set framework.  Successful integration originated from a scientific question and the development of a hypothesis, then moving forward to find the sweet spot at the intersection of Data, Spatial, and Earth Science.  This seminar presents case-specific examples from an Earth Scientist's perspective on how to succeed (and fail) in these efforts.
