Dear Colleagues:

Please find the following announcement and excuse any duplication of 
this message.

A new Web site, the Geospatial Data Preservation Resource Center, aims 
to help those responsible for producing and managing geospatial data 
learn about the latest approaches and tools available to facilitate 
long-term geospatial data preservation and access. The Web site provides 
descriptions and links for a variety of relevant resources, including 
education and training modules, useful tools and software, information 
on policies and standards for preserving geospatial data, and examples 
of successful preservation and associated benefits. This first release 
of the Web site, which CIESIN will be enhancing over the next year, was 
developed as an element of the National Digital Information 
Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) of the Library of Congress.

The Geospatial Data Preservation Resource Center is accessible at 

CIESIN, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network, 
is a unit of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, based at the 
Lamont campus in Palisades, New York.
