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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
If you cannot access the new SharePoint site then:
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 Members receive notifications about upcoming CDI meetings as well as other information about the community. If you would like to become a member, please email email@example.com.
The CDI Monthly Meetings bring together the community to encourage discussion through presentations from USGS programs and science centers as well as outside organizations to share application development and new technologies, discuss data initiatives, and address data and metadata management challenges.
As part of networking and sharing knowledge and experience, the CDI has expanded its community approach through Working Groups that form around common interests, help address challenges, and identify solutions that enable data integration efforts. Working Groups have one or more leads and membership is open to all employees, other government agencies, and external organizations. Some Working Groups have also further subdivided into smaller Focus Groups that address more specific issues and report up to their respective Working Group.
A group committed to facilitating and enhancing connections between the USGS and the citizen science community; supporting the proper, effective, and creative use of citizen science data in the USGS; and engaging the public in USGS science to improve scientific literacy.
A new group (2016) that has emerged from the USGS Science Data Coordinator Network, focusing on science data communications and cross-cutting information management issues.
A team dedicated to developing mechanisms for incorporating data management into science, raising awareness of its importance and value, and promoting the elevation of the practice of data management as a critical partner in the pursuit of science.
Driven by Earth science needs, this group engages members of thematic communities, such as water or land cover, to help develop and share methods, data, software, and conceptual models for their appropriate use within theme-specific applications, as well as for their integration in multi-theme contexts.
A team focused on exploring Semantic Web technologies as possible solutions for integrating and exposing related but disparate data sets.
A group that concerns a broadly defined and applicable set or "stack" of technology that can be used to promote the management and use of Web-based data and processing services as well as enhance interoperability between individual services to help scientists pursue more integrated science. Includes a group exploring cloud computing.
A team that explores the use of cutting edge mobile tools, frameworks, and "thingbots" to support scientists, including wearable computing devices, cellular-based tracking devices, and other mobile science support tools. This team serves as a forum for members to exchange ideas, promote coding and design best practices, and discuss technical and design issues. The group will also facilitate collaboration by promoting joint projects and working with vendors to gain insight into new technologies being developed.
