The Global Change Information System, Curt Tilmes, USGCRP NCO

The National Coordination Office (NCO) of the the United States Global
Change Research Program (USGCRP)  is coordinating the development of a new
data system to integrate information about global change from across the
federal government.  The Global Change Information System (GCIS) will
harmonize the organization and representation of that information from
across the program and integrate existing information from agency data
centers.  Early phases of the GCIS development will focus on representing
the provenance of the National Climate Assessment (NCA), but will also look
into existing agency data centers for sources of information to integrate into
the system.

This talk will give a brief overview of the GCIS and its context supporting
the USGCRP and NCA, with a particular focus on potential areas of
collaboration and involvement for the ESIP Federation.

*Telecons <http://esipfed.org/telecons>: * I have added the NASA ESDSWG
meetings and NSF's EarthCube telecons to the* ESIP
*. If you know of other meetings that should be on the calendar let me

Have a good week!
