USGS - science for a changing world

Ben Thatcher

Standards for project metadata and support documentation for the 22 LCCs to create the metadata were developed by the CA LCC Data Managers under contract by the LCC National Office as part of the effort to create the Simple National Project Catalog database. The resulting database provided a single national source for information to date on all projects funded by the 22 individual LCCs and the national office, and a tool for reviewing these projects, for purposes of national-level management and presenting summaries of this information to Congress. Project descriptions were collected in standardized metadata records using controlled vocabularies, and presented in an online database with searching capabilities. The...

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are public-private partnerships composed of states, tribes, federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities, international jurisdictions, and others working together to address landscape and seascape scale conservation issues. LCCs inform resource management decisions to address broad-scale stressors-including habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity-all of which are magnified by a rapidly changing climate. For further information go to http://lccnetwork.org. The previous 2011 LCC Network Areas data is available at https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/52f2735ee4b0a6f0bd498c2f

The CA LCC’s Data managers worked with the LCC National Office and the 22 LCCs of the Network to create a single national source for information to date on all projects funded by all 22 individual LCCs and the national office, and a tool for reviewing these projects, for purposes of national-level management and presenting summaries of this information to Congress. Project descriptions were collected in standardized metadata records using controlled vocabularies, and presented in an online database with searching capabilities. The original data call was in 2013 and the database was updated in 2014. This work was a precurser to the development by the DMWG of a more automated metadata publishing system using the Arctic...
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
