The Federation of Earth Science Information Partnerships (ESIP) is a consortium of partners that collect earth data from satellites and sensors but they do not have an effective way of obtaining performance indicators about their organization. We analyzed ESIP's website through the use of software systems such as Google Analytics. The results obtained from this IQP were used to help ESIP justify its importance to current funding sources, including NASA and NOAA. We gave recommendations to update the website, use web analytic software, keep good relationships with partners, work with USGEO, and supply a better monthly performance report.
