Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Hunting Invasive Species with HTCondor:

High Throughput Computing for Big Data and Next Generation Sequencing

Innovative computing solutions are necessary to effectively process complex data sets in useful timeframes. Integrating high-throughput computing solutions simultaneously across multiple USGS centers leverages already existing hardware to analyze these large data sets. CDI funding could help build data-processing infrastructure between multiple USGS centers. In addition to helping USGS scientists and our partner organizations to analyze data and run large computing jobs, this project would share computing resources to enable better research and work towards meeting computer reduction initiatives. Enabling the use of HTC by UMESC scientists will empower research and build collaborations within USGS and beyond.

A Data Management and Visualization Framework for Community Vulnerability to Hazards

Analytical data from tsunami evacuation modeling projects exists but needs additional management to fulfill its data life cycle. With CDI funding, this data will be integrated into web services through ScienceBase for use within the USGS and by partner agencies (California Office of Emergency Services, California Earthquake Clearinghouse). Additionally, a web application will be created to present modeling results in conjunction with contextual data to improve public risk awareness and provide access to USGS-derived information.
