Federation VisionAchieve a sustainable world
13
And how do we do that? (1) Put reliable
data into the right hands (2) Do it
actively
14
Strategic Goals
  • 1. Serve as facilitator and advisor for the Earth
    science information community.
  • 2. Promote efficient flow of Earth science data
    from collection to end-use.
  • 3. Improve quality and usability of Earth science
    data and information systems.
  • 4. Expand the use of Earth science information
    get it into the hands of decision-makers.
  • 5. Educate the public about Earth science and
    science information systems.
