CDI Keywords: data integration, scientific data life cycle, applications, data access, data handling and stewardship, scientific computing, knowledge delivery, "in the near-term, produce new and reusable ideas, methods or tools that have an impact beyond a single Program, Center, Region, or Mission Area" (from the RFP Guidance)
Innovation Center Keywords: measurement, monitoring, sampling, sensors, data acquisition, hardware, industry partnerships, "Successful proposals address issues of national importance where a technology partner can bring an emerging tool or technique (often with in-kind funding) that solves a problem aligned with USGS science strategy plans and private and public interests." (from the About page)
Powell Center Keywords: synthesis, working groups, publications, "leveraging existing research efforts to produce powerful new insights and move scientific understanding and its inclusion into management" (from the About page)
While the CDI proposal process is closed for FY17, both the Innovation Center and Powell Center have upcoming opportunities for funding collaborative, innovative ideas.
Joshua Bradley presented progress on the mdEditor tool, an open source client-side web application for authoring and editing metadata for spatial and non-spatial data. CDI has provided support for the development of this tool.
