My Biography

Julia Wagemann is a consultant and project manager who works across strategy, user engagement and innovation of open Earth data. Her work is in the intersection between data providers and users. She helps data organisations to increase the use of their data and data services by consulting different user communities and developing training on access, analysis and application examples of large volumes of EO data. For the past eight years, she has worked together with a range of leading companies and intergovernmental organisations in the Earth Observation domain to drive data innovation and uptake, including the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the Open Geospatial Consortium and others. ​ To increase the use of climate data within the Earth Engine community, she made a subset of ERA5 climate reanalysis data available in Google Earth Engine via the Google Cloud Platform. The ingestion pipeline is available as open-source code on Github. Julia is in the final stages of her PhD in Geography and Computer Sciences at University of Marburg, Germany. In her doctoral research, she aimed to better understand user requirements and training needs for cloud-based systems of Big Earth data. By co-founding the professional network Women+ in Geospatial in March 2019, she follows her calling to improve diversity and gender-equality in the data and geospatial domain. She co-developed a speakers database giving more visibility to women speakers in the geospatial domain and organises a webinar series on career development.
