Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. 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.

The USGS CDI had nice representation at the ESIP (Federation for Earth Science Information Partners) Summer Meeting in Durham, NC, from July 19-22, 2016.  ESIP is known to some (me) as “the place where those cool Earth Science geeks hang out.”


ESIP used some new technologies very effectively to improve the meeting participants’ experience, including:

Here’s ESIP’s own Summer Meeting Summary, complete with a storify from the #esipfed tweets.

I’m looking forward to the next meeting to get the latest scoop on the Earth Science information landscape and to inspire ideas and connections for CDI.
