EarthCube Resource Registry

In order to increase the visibility of EarthCube software products, components, and services, a core vocabulary, ontology, and registry must be developed which will describe and uniquely define the EarthCube cyberinfrastructure landscape. It will enable users to discover scientific and technical resources (software, tools, vocabularies, etc.) that are relevant to their research. The ability to locate resources of relevance will promote EarthCube investments, reduce time to science, and help enable interdisciplinary research. In the short term, the registry will help answer the question: “What is EarthCube?” in a tangible way.

To date, scientists interested in EarthCube have expressed uncertainty about what EarthCube can do for them. The EarthCube Resource Registry will provide immediate access to a list of EC capabilities to understand what EC is, and what it isn’t. The registry will provide a vehicle to notify the community about new products, increase visibility, and gain recognition.
