Welcome to the ESIP Geospatial Cluster

The ESIP Geospatial cluster is a forum for organizations and individuals involved in anything related to geospatial data and information. We seek to foster and build technical and interpersonal connections between and among geospatial data providers and data users by leveraging existing projects and resources to collaboratively advance improved access to geospatial data.

This goal will be achieved by convening individuals engaged in geospatial data research and development, identifying best practices and data management techniques that improve interoperability and data access. Projects will be developed collaboratively to respond to real-world environmental science needs for geospatial data integration.

Please participate at any level you would like in any of our activities. Register in the ESIP wiki and click on the "watch" tab to be notified of ongoing events.
