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.

Learn more about the FAIR principles here: 

To be Findable: 

F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and persistent identifier 
F2. data are described with rich metadata (defined by R1 below) 
F3. metadata clearly and explicitly include the identifier of the data it describes 
F4. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource  

To be Accessible: 
A1. (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol 
A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable 
A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary 
A2. metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available  

To be Interoperable: 
I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles 
I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data  

To be Reusable: 
R1. (meta)data are richly described with a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes 
R1.1 (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage license 
R1.2 (meta)data are associated with detailed provenance 
R1.3 (meta)data meet domain-relevant community standards
