ESIPFed News
*Users Invited to Test New SEDAC Web Site. *The NASA Socioeconomic Data and
Applications Center (SEDAC <http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/>) operated by
CIESIN is a unique source of interdisciplinary data and related information
and services related to the human dimensions of global environmental change.
To help users more effectively find, access, and use these resources, SEDAC
is in the process of redesigning its Web site with enhanced search tools,
interactive mapping tools, a map gallery, topical views of SEDAC content,
and examples of uses of SEDAC data in research, applications, and education.
The new site builds on the latest Internet technologies, including a content
management system, Flickr, open source Web mapping services, and social
networking tools. During the user testing period through July 15, users are
encouraged to provide feedback on the site’s organization and ease of use
and suggestions about new features and content. Comments may be submitted
anonymously through a tool available on the lower right corner of each Web
page. To test the new Web site, please go to SEDAC Web site

all of which have utilized the NASA Goddard Earth Science Data and
Information Service Center (GES DISC) Giovanni system to analyze and
visualize satellite remote-sensing data from NASA missions and related data
sets.   At the end of April 2011, an update to the Giovanni publications
list for 2011 discovered 35 new journal papers, bringing the current total
for 2011 to 42 – a rate of over 10 research publications a month!  (See full
