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.

The work will result in several important outcomes: 1) the use case itself -- a complete understanding of the problem and development of details/roadmap towards potential solutions (policies, requirements for a new use of USGS web services or other online information product 2) documentation of the use case process, for re-use in the future with other use cases.
