The Community for Data Integration (CDI): bringing together people, information, and tools to solve shared challenges in data integration and management

The Community for Data Integration (CDI) is a USGS-wide community of practice focused on bringing together people, information, and tools to solve shared challenges in data integration and management. Over 500 USGS members and their external partners make up this dynamic community that engages in working groups, virtual and in-person meetings, and an annual proposal process. Since 2009, CDI has evolved with the needs of its members and the changing technology and data integration landscape. Who is CDI? What are the recent projects, products, and working group activities? How can you benefit from CDI, and how can CDI continue to grow and serve its constituency with its voluntary work force? Join us for an update and an invitation to join our community.

Title: The USGS Community for Data Integration: Advancing science through communities of practice - Michelle Chang, Madison Langseth, Jennifer Carlino, Viv Hutchison

Abstract:

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) serves as a leading science and information agency providing reliable scientific information to further our understanding of the Earth and inform decision making. Recognizing the need to better integrate the Bureau’s data resources and to facilitate access to scientific data and information, the USGS formed the Community for Data Integration (CDI) in 2009. The USGS CDI operates on a “communities of practice” approach that brings people from across USGS and external partners to share knowledge and expertise about data and information management issues affecting the integration and delivery of ecological, biological, and earth science research. The USGS CDI builds an open dialog through monthly forums and working groups that form around shared topics of interest. The ideas generated by the community and working groups may be supported as USGS CDI annual projects which put into practice innovative solutions that improve interoperability between, integration of, and access to science data.

The USGS CDI has developed into a very active and productive network of over 350 members and has supported over 30 collaborative projects involving complex manipulation and integration of distributed ecological and biological data and technologies. These projects include

·  a visualization tool for national land cover (National Land Cover Database Evaluation Visualization Analysis Tool -http://www.mrlc.gov/eva/ ),

·  integration of North American bat population data to address white-nose syndrome (USGS Bat Population Data -https://www.fort.usgs.gov/science-tasks/2217),

·  enhanced access to downscaled climate projections for climate modeling (USGS Geo Data Portal –http://cida.usgs.gov/gdp/),

·  improved web service access to non-indigenous aquatic species data (USGS Non-indigenous Aquatic Species Database - http://nas.er.usgs.gov/),

·  an integrated web application for citizen science projects (USGS myScience - http://txpub.usgs.gov/myscience/), and

·  a resource for data management planning and metadata creation (USGS Data Management  -http://www.usgs.gov/datamanagement/).

Through this interdisciplinary and community approach, the USGS CDI continues to foster an environment for collaboration and knowledge sharing that has led to projects that enhance our use of data and advance Earth systems science.  New members are always welcome and encouraged to visit http://www.usgs.gov/cdi/.

Title: USGS Community for Data Integration Activities and 2014 Projects - Jennifer Carlino and Michelle Chang (CSAS&L)

Abstract
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Community for Data Integration (CDI) was established in 2009 and represents a dynamic community of practice focused on advancing science data and information management and integration capabilities across the USGS and other organizations. The CDI brings together expertise from external partners and representatives across USGS who are involved in research, data management, and information technology, and provides a forum for collaboration. Through partnerships, working groups, and projects, the CDI leads the development of data management tools and practices, cyber infrastructure, collaboration tools, and training in support of scientists and technology specialists. The 9 awarded projects in FY14 that support the Science Support Framework will be introduced as well as a discussion on ways you can get involved in them and in the broader Community (see http://www.usgs.gov/cdi).
