About Discovery

This page was created (probably temporarily) to represent discovery across three domains: Data, projects&programs, and methodology.

  • Data discovery: Search engines with data repository access for locating data sources and possibly obtaining data therefrom.
    • Example: The SciScope data search engine at www.sciscope.org facilitates simultaneous search and retrieval across NOAA/NCDC NWS, USGS NWIS, and EPA STORET.
  • Projects & Programs discovery: A registry of research programs associated by subject and location allowing you to find other groups doing similar work.
  • Methodology discovery: Find best (or reasonable) practices for How To, thereby get a jump on what you want to do and avoid re-inventing wheels.
    • Example:
