If you have an idea but need some collaborators, you can start looking for CDI collaborators or comments, using the CDI RFP Collaboration Forum:


Why do we have the Community for Data Integration Request for Proposals?

The purpose of the CDI RFP is to build USGS capabilities in data integration and management.

CDI projects.... are short-term | leverage existing resources | demonstrate scalable solutions | improve access to data and tools | develop best practices | share lessons | involve interdisciplinary teams | can be modified for reuse | communicate their value to the wider USGS.

The CDI RFP increases communication across boundaries and creates opportunities to work with people outside of your normal program.

The proposals process involves .... commenting and voting from your peers | new collaborations | communicating without disciplinary jargon | community-building.
