GSA Special Paper 482.

Geoscientists around the world recognize the urgency in developing new information management capabilities to meet the ever growing needs to discover, manage, and sustain resources, as well as to provide capabilities for forecasting adverse events for the public at large. This volume contains papers from researchers addressing some of these capabilities as they are being developed around the world, and it highlights the future goal of geoinformatics to make data and tools available for meeting societal challenges. Publications such as Societal Challenges and Geoinformatics enable researchers to share information that advances an integrative knowledge management environment and to promote data without borders.
