Upcoming Meetings


Enter Data Discovery Studio's Data Discovery Science Competition by Wednesday

Come Find the Data You Need! The deadline is May 1st!

Join the Data Discovery Science Competition at 
Data Discovery Studio is built to help geoscientists find data. It hosts records for over 1.6 million datasets and resources from over 40 repositories, and continues to grow. Individuals, classes, and sci-tech teams can compete in two categories: 

(1) Build a shareable Collection of datasets from existing resources, and add new ones

(2) Modify existing Jupyter Notebooks or create your own to explore a data type of interest.
 Find details at or jump in and start exploring at - enter by May 1, 2019.

Please share broadly! We built this NSF-funded gateway for you, want it to be useful. and welcome your feedback.

Scheduled Informational Webinar for the new NSF Geoinformatics (GI) Solicitation May 14th

A new solicitation has been posted for the NSF Geoinformatics (GI) program from the Division of Earth Sciences. Three new tracks of opportunities are now supported: the Catalytic Track, Facility Track, and Sustainability Track. 



On Tuesday, May 14 at 2 pm EDT, a webinar will be held that holds a brief overview of the program and the opportunity to ask questions. Please email by 5 pm on Friday, May 10 to enroll in the webinar.

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) will consider proposals for the development of cyberinfrastructure (CI) for the Earth Sciences (Geoinformatics).  EAR-supported geoinformatics opportunities will fit into three tracks: Catalytic track, Facility track, and Sustainability track. These tracks broadly support the lifecycle of geoinformatics resource development, from pilots (Catalytic) to broad implementation (Facility) to sunsetting and long-term sustainability (Sustainability). For details, check NSF's official solicitation page.
  • The GI Catalytic Track will support pilot geoinformatics development efforts that are intended to serve Earth Sciences research.
  • The GI Facility Track will support awards for implementation and operation of a cyberinfrastructure resource relied upon by one or more Earth Science communities to address science questions.
  • The GI Sustainability Track will support development and implementation of sustainable funding models to preserve data and software products of value to Earth Science research.

All proposals must be submitted by August 15th.
