The CDI Risk Map Workshop was convened by CSS and CSASL leadership to discuss a plan for Risk related tools and data funded by the CDI. The workshop brought together the USGS team working on the Dept of Interior Risk Map project and initial USGS groups that could collaborate in order to produce reusable, modular pieces of a Risk Map and wider EarthMAP vision.
