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 Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

  1. Regarding text editors that show line numbers: Notepad ++ is for PC machines only. For Macs you can use a couple of Bares Bones Software products: BBEdit (free 30-day trial, then $) or TextWrangler (less powerful, but free), both downloadable at Another option: TextEdit, which is the text editor app that comes on Macs, doesn't list the line numbers; however, you CAN go directly to a line number by hitting cmd-L, which brings up a small window in which to type the line number.

  2. Is there a document somewhere that lists what each element should say?  EX How he added /Time to the end of the date line.  How would we know what to add/change things to in order for it to be correct? Look for this information in the Standard, for example the FGDC CSDGM Standard.

  3. Regarding metadata validation with mp: When using the OME, would should not expect to find some of the errors Peter is pointing out like misplaced elements.

  4. Are there a collection of best example statements of 'Logical_consistency_report"? Not right now, but if this is a need, then the presenters will look into making such a collection available.

  5. Regarding the fact that those knowledgeable with Metadata Review will become go-to people: Good point by the person speaking to Peter right now. Those of us familiar with MP will be looked to until everyone gets up to speed
