The CDI holds in-person workshops every two years. These meetings are a crucial step for focusing people, funding, and Bureau-wide efforts across the USGS on data integration tools and services, data and information management, and computational methods. Participants join to grow their expertise in handling scientific data, to propose collaborative paths to solve data challenges, and to share knowledge with their network of peers.
