The need for informatics
The Need for Informatics interdependency reflected in cyberinfrastructure

Research needs:

  • data to answer new, multivariate questions;

  • tools for manipulating and analyzing data;

  • data for validating models; and

  • To make own data longer-lived and more valuable.

    Societal need to have accurate and integrated scientific information for:

  • increased understanding; and

  • Informed decision-making.


Environmental drivers
Environmental Drivers interdependency reflected in cyberinfrastructure

  • Climate change

  • Pollution

  • Disasters

  • Invasive Species

  • Land and resource use

  • Wildlife diseases

Important geological data
Important Geological Data invasion by exotic species

  • Data linked to specific coordinates,

  • Data about the past (historical or prehistorical), and/or

  • Data available in real-time or near real-time.

    Almost all geological information is useful:

  • Data collected for geological purposes may also serve ecological needs, now or in the future.

  • Even small, brief studies: “original samples are often the only samples” (Geological Society of America, 2005).

“More than 100 million boxes of fossils are in geoscience repositories today” (Committee for the Preservation of Geoscience Data and Collections, 2002).
