We strive for a comprehensive registry of IM software for environmental scientists that is searchable by task (e.g. quality control) and software attribute (e.g. language), as well as provide a community forum to explore the development of new software ideas. We emphasize free and open source software of all maturity levels, but do not exclude proprietary sources. Join our community discussions! We meet regularly (first Wednesday of the month, 2 pm EDT) to explore new ideas, trends, challenges, and opportunities, and have an email list for out of band communications. Everyone ("developers" and "non-developers") is welcome!
