The DataONE Users Group (DUG) is the worldwide community of Earth observation data authors, users, and diverse stakeholders that makeup the DataONE partnership communities. The primary function of the DUG is to represent the needs and interests of these communities in the activities of DataONE. In particular, the DUG provides guidance that facilitates DataONE in achieving its vision and mission.

Karl Benedict and Robert Sandusky, the new DUG co-chairs, will introduce their vision for the DUG over the next two years, building on the partnerships developed with DataONE Member Nodes and the broader community. Continuing on the success of the annual DUG meetings, the DUG seeks to become a primary venue for repository community discussions, facilitating connections and providing support. There are multiple ways you can help us achieve this vision, the first of which is joining this webinar to learn more.

Dr. Karl Benedict has worked since 1986 in parallel tracks of information management, geospatial information technology and archaeology. Within the College of University Libraries & Learning Sciences at the University of New Mexico he serves as an Associate Professor; as the Director of the Research Data Services Program, and as subject liaison for the departments of Geography and Environmental Studies, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Biology. His previous experience includes fifteen years at the Earth Data Analysis Center at the University of New Mexico (including five years as the EDAC Director), for the US Forest Service, National Park Service, and in the private sector conducting archaeological research, developing geospatial databases, performing geospatial and statistical analyses, and developing web-based information delivery applications.

As Director of Research Data Services at UNM Karl works to support effective research data management through instruction, training, consultation, and infrastructure support. His current research foci include the development of open standards-based interoperable data management workflows and infrastructure in support of diverse research projects and streamlining the integration of research data products into long-term preservation systems to maximize the ongoing value of those data beyond the projects in which they are collected or generated. Karl is currently a co-chair of the DataONE Users Group.
