Data Collaboration Services

Data Collaboration Services are tools that enable better collaboration, management of data, and planning online. With a growing number of new collaborations occurring remotely, online collaboration Web sites and tools have begun to be crucial. The USGS is committed to providing an "Integrated Information Environment" for USGS personnel and their external partners in order to facilitate the production of data that can be shared within the scientific community and the public.
