This project aimed to advance the long-standing need for a more formalized approach to data management planning at the science center (program) level in USGS. The study used two different science centers as test cases. Improved planning for data management and data integration is identified in the Bureau science strategy goals (U.S. Geological Survey, 2007; Burkett and others, 2011) with the need for consistent and unified data management to allow for accessible and high confidence data and information from the USGS science community. Principal Investigator : Thomas E Burley, Stan Smith Benefits Two data management models for other science centers to use Data management framework tested by use case scenario ...
This project created a mobile application to collect nationally consistent data of fish passage barriers in the United States to meet needs for hydrologic and ecological assessments and conservation planning decisions. Principal Investigator : David R Maltby, Andrea Ostroff Benefits Meets high priority need for hydrological and ecological assessments Data available to conservation planners Expand USGS scientific and technical support to the National Fish Habitat Action Plan Deliverables Presentation given at CDI-hosted Webinar (September 2012) Available to both iPhone (iOS6) and Android (3.0 or higher). Uses the geo-locational services provides with HTML5 to correlate location with an online data entry form...
CDI helped fund development of the USGS Geo Data Portal in 2010. In 2012, CDI funded two projects to increase the functionality of the Geo Data Portal. The Resources section below contains links to the Geo Data Portal website and deliverables from the 2012 projects. Principal Investigator : David L Blodgett Description of the Geo Data Portal from the Geo Data Portal documentation home : The USGS Geo Data Portal (GDP) project provides scientists and environmental resource managers access to downscaled climate projections and other data resources that are otherwise difficult to access and manipulate. This user interface demonstrates an example implementation of the GDP project web-service software and standards-based...

This presentation is a product of the 2012 CDI Project: USGS Citizen Science Workshop. See the "Resources" section below for a downloadable pdf file of the original PowerPoint presentation. It was presented on Sept. 5, 2012 at a CDI-sponsored webinar. The USGS CDI supported the development of the Citizen Science Working Group in August 2011 and funded the Working Group’s proposal to hold a USGS Citizen Science Workshop in fiscal year 2012. The goals or the USGS Citizen Science Workshop were: To raise awareness of research within the USGS that incorporates citizen science To create a Community of Practice from which knowledge and expertise can be shared To provide a forum to discuss the challenges of and opportunities...
2012 Updates (from the FY12 Annual Review) The NWIS Web Services Snapshot represents the next generation of data retrieval and management. The newest Snapshot tool allows instant access to NWIS data from four different web services through ArcGIS, software available to all USGS scientists in all mission areas. Increased data retrieval efficiency reduces the steps required to retrieve and compile water data from multiple sites from what can be more than 30 steps to just a few clicks. As an end-user education tool, it promotes use of NWIS data from both web services and the NWIS database, which increases the production of scientific research and analysis that uses NWIS data. The Snapshot database design enables efficient...
This project described production of an information foundation for fish habitat research consisting of a “mashup” of data from multiple USGS data systems that are fragmented among the former USGS Divisions. The proposal aimed to develop and test the semantic approach to data integration by focusing on the problem of fish habitat modeling. Effective prediction of the abundance of particular species at particular locations is a primary objective of both ecology and natural resource management. Better knowledge of aquatic fish ecology and habitat requirements and improved tools for assessment and planning are needed to help conserve and rehabilitate populations throughout their native range. Principal Investigator...
This project developed a set of raster utility classes and layer types for inclusion in OpenLayers to allow for statistical analysis, manipulation, and additional rendering functionality for raster data sources. The deliverables are patches for the OpenLayers development branch that include the new functionality, examples and documentation to demonstrate its use, and comprehensive unit test coverage. The intention was to get this newly developed functionality into the next stable release of OpenLayers. An additional component of an HTML5 toolkit is for the opensource JavaScript mapping framework OpenLayers. These tools are especially useful to USGS web mapping needs. This effort delivered a new set of classes within...
The purpose of this project was to establish and support a USGS Mobile Environment website to provide support of portable hardware devices, application development and application delivery. The development of a framework to fully support this endeavor will require input and involvement by Core Science Systems, Enterprise Information, Science Quality and Integrity, Office of Communication, Publishing and the mobile community. Principal Investigator : Lorna A Schmid, David L Govoni, Sky Bristol, Tim Kern Benefits One-stop shop to provide detailed support information across USGS Mission Areas Actual functioning mobile applications, built collectively Deliverables Trained Mobile Community Workshop held July 17...

The USGS Data Management Web Site provides non-prescriptive data management guidance, best practices, tools, and resources in one convenient location. It’s intended to complement and support the Survey Manual handbook by providing guidance on how Survey Manual policies can be implemented. It offers a place to share and learn about USGS best practices in data management. The web site allows you to: Create a data management plan Develop data standards, data formats, and data templates Create compliant and robust metadata records Assign Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to datasets for citation and better tracking Preserve and archive digital data and physical samples Publish and share data to promote discoverability,...
2012 Updates - Phase 2 (information from the FY12 CDI Annual Report) This project solicited input from USGS Mission Areas, Geographic Areas, CDI, etc. on Phase 1 FY11 Data Management Education Products. The proposal called for an interface with Data Management Website Working Group to make materials available. The work also included the development of content for a USGS data management training program based upon existing materials and data management training. Finally, development of a format/structure for data management training workshop was completed. Principal Investigator : Heather S Henkel, Vivian B Hutchison Benefits Inform and encourage broadest possible application of data Management best practices...
This project identified collected, and characterized existing online monitoring methods and protocol collection tools that USGS manages or is a substantial collaborator. It also identified the common elements between existing protocol libraries content and functionality. The project examined the results of the USGS Monitoring workshop in December 2011 that provided information about stakeholder needs to form the future scope of monitoring library components and functionality. Finally, the project developed a mechanism via the Data Management website for USGS scientists to identify their needs with regards to seeking monitoring protocols for a particular methodology and or other protocol access, reference, and citation...
What USGS programs use citizen science? How can projects be best designed while meeting policy requirements? What are the most effective volunteer recruitment methods? What data should be collected to ensure validation and how should data be stored? What standard protocols are most easily used by volunteers? Can data from multiple projects be integrated to support new research or existing science questions? To help answer these and other questions, the USGS CDI supported the development of the Citizen Science Working Group (CSWG) in August 2011 and funded the Working Group’s proposal to hold a USGS Citizen Science Workshop in fiscal year 2012. The USGS Citizen Science Workshop goals were: To raise awareness of...
