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.

Community for Data Integration (CDI)

Warning

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 gs_cdi@usgs.gov 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 cdi-all@listserv.usgs.gov) but cannot find the invite, please contact the CDI facilitators at gs_cdi@usgs.gov.

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.

Expand

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 cdi@usgs.gov.

CDI Working Groups

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.

Please note that the default time zone shown on the calendar may not be your current time zone. To change your time zone, go to your user icon in the upper right corner–> Settings and edit your time zone. Email cdi@usgs.gov with any questions.

CDI Annual Request for Proposals (RFP)

The CDI has provided funding support for many products and activities. Through the annual CDI proposal process, funds have been awarded for projects focusing on data integration for interdisciplinary research, innovative data management, and potentially cutting edge technology. Typically the Annual CDI RFP submission and review process starts in early September and lasts through the end of March.

CDI Annual Workshops

The CDI has sponsored annual workshops/webinar series to encourage the exchange of ideas, sharing of activities, presentations of current projects, and networking among members.
