EDSC…

The Environmental Data Standards Council—a body of State, US EPA and Tribal representatives who are fostering efficient data sharing partnerships

data standards
Data Standards…
  • Are the common language (i.e., terms, definitions, and formats) that allow sharing of environmental information
  • Improve
    • Data quality and utility
    • Consistency and efficiency of data collection
  • Reduce data redundancy
esar is
ESAR Is…
  • The Environmental Sampling, Analysis and Results (ESAR) data standard
  • Being developed since there was no common data exchange standard for sharing environmental sampling, analysis and results data
  • Based on the premise that environmental data collection uses similar principles and components--regardless of media or regulatory program
  • Available, in draft, for review and comment at
    • www.ecos.org/wiser/PublicLibrary/
    • Click on Environmental Data Standards
edsc goal for esar
EDSC Goal for ESAR

To create common terms, definitions, and formats that facilitate the sharing of sampling, analysis, and reporting data generated by the field and laboratory activities.

esar development
ESAR Development…
  • Collaborative and consensus approach
  • Multi-disciplinary team
  • Based on business process
team members
Team Members
  • State Environmental Agencies and US Environmental Protection Agency Staff
  • Full Spectrum of Activities and Programs
    • Field Biologists, Chemists, Laboratory Managers
    • Air, Water Quality , Drinking Water and Waste Management
key design concepts
Key Design Concepts…
  • Develop a core standard that is applicable to all media and then build/add components that relate to very specific program and/or monitoring requirements
  • Identify Re-usable Blocks -- those groupings of related Data Elements that can be used and re-used among different information flows
  • Adopt Other Standards in part or in their entirety as appropriate
  • Create core standard that “everyone can use”
esar data standard
ESAR Data Standard…
  • A multi-segmented standard based on the business processes and steps that most data collectors follow-- from planning, collection, and analysis to reporting results
  • Segments and data blocks organize information about environmental laboratory results
  • Generic terms to apply to broadest audience
  • Foundation/base/core for exchange of environmental laboratory data
  • Organized to follow the business process but don’t have to be used as presented
systems electronic deliverables and esar
Systems, Electronic Deliverables, and ESAR…
  • Systems and Electronic Deliverables are the structures that organize and define the explicit relationships among data
  • ESAR provides data elements or blocks of data elements that populate the structure
