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 myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Overview

ScienceBase implements the basic requirements for OpenSearch, allowing the responses to be used in syndication formats such as RSS and ATOM.  ScienceBase Catalog can also be set as a search engine in the browser.  For more information, see http://www.opensearch.org/Home
