Summary
Abstract:

The Cornell University's Geoscience Information System Project, started in

1995, is a major initiative that targets to develop a comprehensive Geoscience

Information System for the geosciences. The initiative is largely due to

acceptance that existing information systems and knowledge extraction

techniques are inadequate. In order to handle the changing needs of the
...


Specific goals in these research efforts are to:


-increase scientific productivity and the ability to deal with

multidisciplinary data sets at all spatial scales by collecting, developing,

and organizing data sets, data access tools, and codes to model and study the

collected data sets;


-raise the quality of instruction from graduate to K-12 levels by

promoting discovery-based learning and critical thinking skills with available

tools, data sets and information;


-provide a vehicle to disseminate scientific knowledge to the general

public;


-provide a Geoscience Information System that can link eventually with any

future unified physical, natural and social science knowledge system.
