Title Implementing USGIN, a Distributed Data Network for Geoscience Information
Abstract The U.S. Geoscience Information Network (USGIN) is a framework for sharing geoscience data in a distributed network based on a collection of open-source applications, standards, procedures, and protocols for data sharing. USGIN is web-based, distributed, open-source, and interoperable. This workshop will provide a case study of USGIN in action through the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) State Geological Survey Contributions to the National Geothermal Data System.Property "Abstract" (as page type) with input value "The U.S. Geoscience Information Network (USGIN) is a framework for sharing geoscience data in a distributed network based on a collection of open-source applications, standards, procedures, and protocols for data sharing.
