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.

  • USGS NBII Metadata Clearinghouse (
    • The Clearinghouse can harvest metadata records into its catalog from a Science Center's web accessible folder on a server at the Center containing records in XML format and using the FGDC standard. The Center maintains control over all of its metadata records at all times. Once harvested into the Clearinghouse, we can set up a distinct area in the Clearinghouse that can isolate only the Center's records in a search. We can also give the Center some very simple code that can be added to their website and allows a search of only that Center's metadata records. Lastly, we can also push the records back out to the Center in the form of a customized Clearinghouse, if that is desired.
