From SCGIS list:
Greetings GIS colleagues,
Just a reminder that there are only 11 days left to submit an app to the CSAS challenge! If you could help spread the word to any application developers you know, that would be great!
Calling All Application Developers - USGS Wants You!
USGS scientists are looking for your help in addressing some of today’s most perplexing scientific challenges, such as climate change and biodiversity loss. Through the Challenge.gov platform, the USGS Core Science Analytics and Synthesis (CSAS) is inviting the Nation’s premier application developers and data visualization specialists to create new applications centered on CSAS datasets.
"We know there are extremely talented people out there who will be able to devise new ways to expand the reach and/or capabilities of our data," said CSAS Director Cheryl Morris. "We're eager to see what folks come up with."
Submissions will be judged on their relevance to today’s scientific challenges, innovative use of the datasets, and overall ease of use of the application, with prizes awarded in several categories.
