An NSF Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Center of Excellence for Navigating the Major Facilities Data Lifecycle
Picture of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)
The aim of CI- Compass (CI-Compass.org) is to create models for a Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence (CI CoE) for the National Science Foundation's Major Facilities which include the Arecibo Observatory, the Geodetic Facility for Advancement of Geoscience, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the National Ecological Observatory Network, and the Seismological Facilities for the Advancement of Geoscience and Earth Scope. These facilities represent some of NSF's leading facilities in developing new innovations within the science and engineering field through data collection. However, not all of the facilities possess the resources or training needed to take advantage of the new capabilities or to solve issues themselves. To improve this, CI-Compass will help improve major facilities ability to solve problems and process data by using CI tools to create better organizational practices.
