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.

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.

Here's another installment of all the topics being explored in the CDI Collaboration Areas. I'll get up to date yet! 11/2/17 Software Development Cluster - How do we use version control? The Software Development group discussed how people use github or other version control, for example, regarding release schedules and when in the dev cycle do releases begin? Eric Martinez led this conversation with a presentation on how the GHSC (Geologic Hazards Science Center) is using gitlab.…

WURFL - Detecting Mobile Device Capabilities
Wireless Universal Resource FiLe or WURFL  is a Device Description Repository (DDR), i.e. a software component which contains the descriptions of thousands of mobile devices. The XML data file maintained by this site http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/ http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/ allow an easy way to programatically discover capabilities about mobile devices coming at your mobile web site. Bonus: sample programming language implementations.  (Courtesy of Mark Hamill)
Mobile-First Responsive Web Design
Mobile-First Responsive Web Design is a combination of philosophies/strategies, and ultimately boils down to a broader application of good ol’ web best practices.
