Interdisciplinary Team Leading Community Data Integration Project

The USGS Information Science Branch is improving scientific data management through transparency and reproducibility after being awarded funding based on the recent proposal, “Facilitating the USGS Scientific Data Management Foundation by Integrating the Process into Current Scientific Workflow Systems.” This Community for Data Integration (CDI) project supports scientists who may have limited knowledge of information science or limited resources by providing an exemplar that the USGS can point to as it institutes new standards for producing repeatable science.

This effort ensures compliance with new bureau requirements by providing a workflow that facilitates comprehensive documentation of scientific processes. Colin Talbert and an interdisciplinary team made up from the Fort Collins Science Center, USGS Core Science Systems, and the DOI North Central Climate Science Center are leading the effort.
