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.

The CDI wiki has moved to a new space on SharePoint. All members of the cdi-all mailing list that are external to Department of the Interior received either an invitation or direct access to the new space on January 12, 2022. The email is from Robbie Moreland and you should click "Accept Invite." We plan to turn off write-access to the CDI spaces on January 28, 2022. Contact Leslie Hsu at if you have questions. 

If you cannot access the new SharePoint site then:

  1. Check your email from January 12, 2022 for a message from Microsoft Invitations on behalf of DOI, with Paul (Robbie) Moreland. There is a link for "Accept invitation" - click that. 
  2. Join the CDI to get access. If you are not on the cdi-all roster, join here
  3. Or check in with CDI. If you are on the cdi-all listserv (you receive monthly emails to but cannot find the invite, please contact the CDI facilitators at

The Community for Data Integration (CDI) is a dynamic community of practice working together to advance scientific data and information management and integration capabilities in the USGS.


This is a publicly available web space managed by community members, and much of the content found throughout this site provides exposure to current thinking of the community. It is provided into the public space to encourage participation and collaboration with the many groups and individuals who are working on similar issues but does not represent official policy of the USGS or the U.S. Government in general.

Membership in CDI is open to anyone


interested in participating or contributing to the community. Members receive notifications about upcoming CDI meetings
