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.

What the Project Profile does

The BioData System is organized by Projects and Samples. Use the Project Profile to determine who can access and edit data, provide metadata, and make data entry more efficient by setting defaults.

Functions of Project Profile (applicable sections)

  • Establishing project identification, data ownership and access; Set review status (Project Header)
    • Identification: Name, Label,
    • Ownership: Science Center, Owner
    • Access: Editing rights: Owner, Staff
    • Review Status
  • Creating descriptive metadata, the who, what, when and why of the project data  (Project Header; Special Project or Program Information)
    • Abstract
    • Program, Cooperator
  • Set default values and units (NWQL ASR Defaults; Default BioData Lab Order Information)
    • Lab order and ASR information
    • Future: enhancements to make data entry more efficient

Project Profile Page

These are the sections on the Project Profile page:

  1. Project Header (includes Abstract)
  2. Special Project or Program Information
  3. NWQL ASR Defaults
  4. Default BioData Lab Order Information

The Abstract

The Project Abstract provides a description of the data set collected by this Project. The abstract will be especially helpful to researchers who access these data through the retrieval systems. Enter an abstract that is a paragraph or more that describes the objectives, key aspects, design or methods of study. Also, helpful is the area of study, types of samples collected, and beginning and ending dates.
Suggested information to include in the Project Abstract
  • Description of the data set collected by this Project. The abstract will be especially helpful to researchers who want to use these data.
  • Describe the objectives, key aspects, design or methods of study
  • Area of study, types of samples collected, and beginning and ending dates

Special Project or Program Information & NWQL ASR Defaults

The sections "Special Project or Program Information" and "NWQL ASR" Defaults" are provided for a Project to :

  • Select a USGS Program (such as "National Water Quality Assessment;" "Cooperative Water Program;" "Federal Benchmark Sites)
  • List any cooperators with the project
  • For "National Water Quality Assessment program (NAWQA) Projects fill out values used on NWQL ASRs.
    • "NWQL ASR" Defaults" is conditionally displayed when "National Water Quality Assessment" is selected in the Program selection box

 

Figure. "Special Project or Program Information" section

Figure. NWQL ASR Defaults is displayed when "National Water Quality Assessment" is selected in the Program selection box. Here you can fill out values that will be used when you create ASRs for the National Water Quality Lab (NWQL).
