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.

We are in the process of updating the Manage Quality page on the USGS Data Management Website. We have a draft of the updated page in a Google Doc. We would like to include some examples of data quality elements in metadata records (e.g. attribute accuracy, logical consistency report, etc.). We have some examples from the Coastal and Marine Geology Program, but we would like to have examples from other disciplines as well. If you have examples that you would like to share on the Data Management Website, please either post those examples as comments to this forum post or send me an email. Thanks!

  1. Thanks to everyone who responded to this post with examples! I have compiled examples that I received here: Quality Management Documentation Examples (Only available to USGS employees and contractors). Please feel free to comment on examples that you think are really great, ones that could be improved (and how they could be improved), or other thoughts on the best way to share these examples with the rest of the USGS.
