ScienceBase and Other Project Lifecycle Tools
This video is a part of the Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, hosted by the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the FWS National Conservation Training Center. The National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) is managing activities at 8 regional Climate Science Centers (CSCs), each of whom fund multiple projects annually and coordinate with many stakeholders and partners to support climate change science, management and adaptation. We, at NCCWSC, need to be able to share information on these science projects, and on their associated data and products. In order to accomplish this, NCCWSC is working with ScienceBase, a data catalog and collaborative data platform as a repository for NCCWSC and CSC funded projects. We have also developed several other tools and policies that help us manage the entire lifecycle of our projects and share information with stakeholders and the public - bringing order to what can often be a chaotic process.
