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 myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The USGS GIS Community had a discussion on 12/19/17 about how GIS users and enthusiasts at USGS can share information and tools as a community. The importance of the topic was illustrated by the fact that the call was so well attended that we ran out of phone lines (sorry about that - recording linked below.) Shane Wright and Roland Viger led the discussion, including the current state of USGS Enterprise GIS Help. CDI helped to facilitate the call.

Participants answered polls about what open source GIS tools they use, what technical support mechanisms seemed most promising, and what are the most important needs of the GIS community over the next 5 years. This was the start of a community of practice that will help to communicate and advance GIS capabilities at the USGS. To get involved in the conversation, contact Shane (wright@usgs.gov) or Roland (rviger@usgs.gov).
