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.

In 2012, the CDI Coordinators developed a Science Support Framework (SSF) (Figure 2) that categorizes and relates the activities and processes through which research data flows and within and upon which the CDI operates. It is these categories that provide the focus and a framework for coordination and integration of current and future CDI-funded projects. A more detailed explanation of the CDI SSF categories and the direction of data flow through the framework are included towards the end of this page.

CDI Operational Context for the Science Support Framework

Since 2009, CDI has funded a variety of projects that support the overarching goal of data integration (Proposals). USGS and other researchers conduct monitoring, assessment, and research activities that generate data assets, which through the application of business, computational, and analytic processes and technologies are converted into information that contributes to our understanding of the Earth’s physical and biological systems. It is within this context that data management and integration occurs and where the CDI operates (Figure 1). The CDI has provided funding support for projects that promote data integration and

  • Focus on short-term benefits to science
  • Leverage existing capabilities
  • Apply solution/methodology that can be replicated
  • Ensure sustainability
  • Seek substantial return on investment
  • Expose corporate data
  • Organize science models and outputs
  • Preserve and access project data
