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. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Wiki Markup
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.

    =Wiki Migration!
    }We are currently working on transitioning the CDI wiki and documents from a myUSGS 3.0 space to this new myUSGS 4.0 space. That will hopefully be completed in advance of the 2011 CDI workshop, August 17-18 in Denver. In the meantime, you might see a few new pages show up here for ongoing work from CDI folks testing this new platform. During this transition, you may find that links will lead you back to the myUSGS 3.0 space and you will be required to log in to myUSGS 3.0 at that point. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
