Standards promote interoperability of USGS data on the U.S. Geoscience Information Network

  1. 1. Standards promote interoperability of USGS data on the U.S. Geoscience Information Network Sky Bristol Natalie Latysh U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey USGS Core Science Analytics, Synthesis and Libraries
  2. 2. AGU Fall Meeting 2014 Talking Points • What is the USGS Core Research Center, and what is its value? • Current state of information access and interoperability • What is the US Geoscience Information Network, and why do we think it’s important? • Experimental application of USGIN architecture • Remaining pesky questions
  3. 3. AGU Fall Meeting 2014 USGS Core Research Center http://geology.usgs.gov/crc/ 1.7 million ft/15,630 core samples 239 million ft/52,579 cutting samples From 33 U.S. states 7,125 cores with photos 20,000+ thin sections 8,464 “analyses”

  10. 10. AGU Fall Meeting 2014 But… There’s lots of things we don’t know yet. despite the technical problems which we will resolve…
  11. 11. AGU Fall Meeting 2014 • Will people use this service? • If we plug it into the USGIN implementation for something like the National Geothermal Data System, will the records come up in searches? • Will we see researchers request access to the cores and other resources from discovering them somewhere other than on the CRC Well Catalog application? • Does this work really improve interoperability?
