  Information - SSP21 Geoinformatics and Information Management in Stratigraphy, Sedimentology & Paleontology

Event Information
Data on stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology are heterogeneous and diverse. In many countries around the globe, an increasing number of geoscience projects are developing and maintaining digital data and information systems together with tools for data analysis and visualization.

Coordination and collaboration among these projects, and their integration are essential in order to maximize the impact of these globally distributed Geoinformatics resources. This session emphasizes the importance of international collaboration in the development of a Geoscience cyberinfrastructure that will successfully promote advances in Geoscience research and enable new approaches to addressing scientific problems that lead to new discoveries and an improved understanding of the Earth. We have defined two objectives for this session:

(1) to draw attention to and discuss the many political, cultural, organizational, and technical challenges that need to be addressed and overcome in order to achieve a truly global cyberinfrastructure for the Geosciences.
(2) to highlight examples of international collaborations that successfully coordinate and integrate their efforts.
