Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted.  For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown

Data Management

Training

The USGS has developed training modules for general data management best practices and USGS data release.

USGS Data Management Training Modules

The first 6 modules on this page help researchers, data stewards, managers and the public gain an understanding of the value of data management in science and provide best practices to perform good data management within their organization.

USGS Data Release Training Modules

The second set of training modules provides an overview of tools and workflows for USGS scientists and data managers to release USGS data products. The USGS Data Release page on this site describes the USGS Data Release process in more detail.
