Hello to all,

I have continued to work on a presentation for the Federation that 
reveals what the group has contributed to current, and future, data 
and information systems specific to Earth sciences.  I did receive a 
number of additional charts for use in this presentation. Thanks for 
the help.  What I believe would be helpful at this point is getting 
feedback from the group on the structure of the presentation and how 
I have/am assembling the examples provided.  The attached powerpoint 
document contains the basic framework of the presentation and just a 
few samples of the materials already sent in.

I begin the presentation with a very brief overview of the Federation 
and the connection to data and information system developments.  I 
follow on with a section where the examples you sent, (and may yet 
send to me), fit.  This section has been organized using 4 topical 
areas where the Federation can present the work that has gone on over 
the years - we believe we can really show the benefits of the 
Federation by telling a story for each of these topics.

It is my aim to allow people to self select where their contributes 
fit into one or more of these areas.  Also, a number of you sent in 
several slides that I am taking the liberty of consolidating into 1 
or 2 to use in this section.  The impact will be made if we can well 
demonstrate efforts that support these important facets of data 
system development.

The final section was added so we are able to not just show what the 
Federation has and continues to work on but also can say 'what are 
the impacts', who is benefiting from these efforts', etc.

Thanks for your feedback and help on this important effort... the 
more targeted materials are to the subjects we are discussing the 
more powerful the take away message will be.
