These four tables document the data used to draw the findings in the manuscript “Measuring sustainability of seed-funded Earth science informatics projects,” by Hsu et al. Table 1, “ListProjects-data” lists the projects funded by the Community for Data Integration from 2010-2016. Table 2, “Outputs-data” lists the deliverables that were proposed and delivered to the Community for Data Integration from 2010-2016, and notes if they were still accessible or sustained at the time of this study (December 2018). Table 3, “Influences-and-Sustainabiltiy-data” lists the projects and the sustainability influences examined in this study, as well as if the project achieved individual-level or organizational-level sustainability....
NOTE: For the most recent listing of CDI projects, see the CDI public USGS website at: The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Community for Data Integration (CDI) was established in 2009 to address data and information management issues affecting the proficiency of earth science research. The CDI provides a forum for collaboration and brainstorming by bringing together expertise from external partners and representatives across USGS who are involved in research, data management, and information technology. Through partnerships and working groups, the CDI leads the development of data management tools and practices, cyber infrastructure, collaboration...
Executive Summary The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has a long history of advancing the traditional Earth science disciplines and identifying opportunities to integrate USGS science across disciplines to address complex societal problems. The USGS science strategy for 2007-2017 laid out key challenges in disciplinary and interdisciplinary arenas, culminating in a call for increased focus on a number of crosscutting science directions. Ten years on, to further the goal of integrated science and at the request of the Executive Leadership Team (ELT), a workshop with three dozen invited scientists spanning different disciplines and career stages in the Bureau convened on February 7-10, 2017, at the USGS John Wesley...
