Metrics Planning Group (MPG)

The purpose of the Metrics Planning Group (MPG) is to review and recommend program-level performance metrics and collection tools that measure how well each data activity supports the NASA Science Mission Directorate's Earth science, application, and education programs. The MPG was formerly known as the Metrics Planning and Reporting Working Group (MPARWG) and was part of the Earth Science Data System Working Groups (ESDSWG) until it was renamed to MPG and elevated as a standalone part of the Community Data System Programs in November 2011.

The MPG provides on-going review, evaluation, recommendations, and metrics evolution for the NASA Earth science data and service provider community.

The MPG recommends additions, deletions, or modifications to the set of metrics. Recommendations may be approved, modified, or rejected by NASA. If approved, NASA Science Mission Directorate-funded Earth science data and service providers will have to make the recommended changes in their reporting.NASA Science Mission Directorate-funded Earth science data system projects report their metrics using a web-based metrics collection tool.
