Exploring ecosystem services in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming.
A Virtual Catalog for storing WyGISC harvested items.
LANDFIRE, also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Program, is a vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristic mapping program managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior. LANDFIRE represents the first, and only, complete, nationally consistent collection of spatial resource datasets with an ecological foundation that can be used across multiple disciplines. LANDFIRE data products are primarily designed and developed to be used at the landscape level to facilitate national and regional strategic planning and reporting of wild land fire and other natural resource management activities. However, LANDFIRE’s spatially comprehensive dataset...
ScienceBase Global context providing access to all items ScienceBase provides a data cataloging and collaborative data management platform for USGS scientists and partners. ScienceBase provides a central search and discovery application along with Web services that facilitate other applications. Research communities can set up their own virtual spaces that contain items of particular import to their work. Items are added to the ScienceBase Catalog through one of several methods: Harvesting engines access other catalogs or more simple listings of data resources and integrate them into ScienceBase by analyzing core elements needed for query and contextualization. Authorized users enter new items by...
The USGS Great Lakes Science Center will use ScienceBase to manage information, including archival science records, select data sets, citations for possible dissemination and sharing via web feeds. Advancing scientific knowledge and providing scientific information for restoring, enhancing, managing, and protecting the living resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes basin ecosystem.

The Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center 's mission is to provide scientific understanding and the technology needed to support sound management and conservation of our nation's natural resources, with emphasis on western ecosystems. The scientists from FRESC capitalize on their diverse expertise to answer critically important scientific questions shaped by the equally diverse environments of the western United States. FRESC scientists collaborate with each other and with partners to provide rigorous, objective, and timely information and guidance for the management and conservation of biological systems in the West and worldwide. Research activities are concentrated in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada,...

The Geologic Hazards Science Center is located in Golden, Colorado, on the Colorado School of Mines campus. The Science Center works in the following four programs: - Earthquake Hazards Program - Landslide Hazards Program - Geomagnetism Program - Global Seismographic Network
For over 125 years, the U.S. Geological Survey streamgage network has provided important hydrologic information about rivers and streams throughout the Nation. Traditional streamgage methods provide reliable stage and streamflow data but typically only monitor stage at a single location in a river and require frequent calibration streamflow measurements. Direct measurements are not always feasible, therefore improved sensors and methods are being deployed at gages to better document streamflow conditions between measurements. The technology and techniques of reach-scale monitoring allow the U.S. Geological Survey to collect more data across the full range of streamflow without requiring that a hydrographer be present....
The Science Framework for the Conservation and Restoration Strategy of the Sagebrush Biome provides a strategic, multiscale approach for prioritizing areas for management and determining effective management strategies across the sagebrush biome. It includes: A six step process linking information on sagebrush ecosystem resilience to species habitat requirements An assessment of the predominant ecosystem and anthropogenic threats Decision tools including a habitat matrix to aid in determining project areas and appropriate management actions at multiple scales Geospatial data, maps and models provided through the U.S. Geological Survey ScienceBase and BLM Landscape Approach Data Portal to support future assessments...
The USGS Land Remote Sensing Program has established a long-term study to better understand the users, uses, and value of Landsat satellite imagery. The current Landsat satellites provide high-quality, multi-spectral, moderate-resolution imagery of all areas of the world. This imagery is applied in a variety of applications, such as global climate change, environmental management, and planning and development. Landsat imagery is unique among current satellite imagery due to an archive of free global imagery collected continuously since 1972. More than 20 million Landsat scenes have been downloaded, the vast majority since a no-cost data policy was put into place in 2008. The Fort Collins Science Center’s Social...
The HNB ScienceBase community is intended to share information, datasets, and software related to monitoring techniques, methods research and development, data quality assurance, next generation water observing networks, and health and status of WMA-supported in situ observing systems.
The USGS Astrogeology Science Center is a national resource for the integration of planetary geoscience, cartography, and remote sensing. As explorers and surveyors, with a unique heritage of proven expertise and international leadership, we enable the ongoing successful investigation of the Solar System for humankind.
Our objective is to improve the scientific understanding of the modes, rates, and mechanisms of carbon stabilization and losses in soils from Alaska, California, and other Western states. We focus on the biophysical and microbial mechanisms that drive carbon gains and losses, and to use our data to improve models of soil carbon cycling. This catalog supports research from several projects focused on soil carbon cycling. It encompasses multiple types of datasets including environmental, ecological, biological, isotopic, mineralogical, genomic, flux, and modeled data from water, vegetation, soil, and atmospheric matrices. The catalog will be available online and to the public. Therefore, publication of data through...

Welcome to the USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center’s (PIWSC) catalog and repository space. The purpose of this space is to make available datasets and data products, and to establish linkages to associated publications. The mission of the USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center is to provide reliable and impartial scientific information needed to understand the quantity and quality of water resources in Hawaii and U.S. affiliated Pacific Islands. To learn more about PIWSC information and data products, visit our web site at Pacific Islands Water Science Center.
The Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC) conducts integrated research to fulfill the Department of the Interior’s responsibilities to the Nation’s natural resources. Located on 600 acres along the James River Valley near Jamestown, North Dakota, the NPWRC develops and disseminates scientific information needed to understand, conserve, and wisely manage the Nation’s biological resources. Research emphasis is primarily on midcontinental plant and animal species and ecosystems of the United States.

OBIS-USA brings together marine biological occurrence data – recorded observations of identifiable marine species at a known time and place, collected primarily from U.S. Waters or with U.S. funding. Coordinated by the Science Analytics and Synthesis (SAS) Program of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), OBIS-USA, strives to meet national data integration and dissemination needs for marine data about organisms and ecosystems. OBIS-USA is part of an international data sharing network (Ocean Biodiversity Information System, OBIS) coordinated by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization) International Oceanographic Data and Information...
