In support of the NSF Data Science / Big Data Community and the Research Data Alliance (RDA), Semantic Community has prepared four multiple data set data sets from the RDA Climate Change Data Challenge, U.S. National Transportation Atlas Database (NTRD),, and the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit, to jump start the Federal Big Data Working Group Meetup, and other data science meetup participants, for our September 28th Meetup of Data Science Meetups, to prepare for the NSF Meetup of Data Science Meetups, November 5-6, 2015.

All of the information is a Data FAIRPort (Free, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) in a Data Science Commons or Hub as a community service. Suggestions and feedback are welcomed.
