==Overview and Purpose of Wiki==

{| style="border-collapse: collapse; border: medium none;" class="MsoTableGrid"
This wiki has been established by the [[NOAA Global Earth Observation -- Integrated Data Environment (GEO-IDE)]] per the recommendation stated in Section 8 (Page 51) of the [[Global Earth Observation Integrated Data Environment CONOPS|Project CONOPS]]: “To assist program and project managers, [https://www.nosc.noaa.gov/dmc/swg/wiki/index.php?title=NOAA_Data_Management_Integration_Team_%28DMIT%29_Workspace NOAA's Data Management Integration Team] DMIT recommends that a NOAA Guide on Integrated Information Management be developed.  The Guide is intended to help NOAA program and project managers find resources needed to help write detailed implementation plans for their programs that conform to GEO-IDE recommendations.  These resources include NOAA data management policies and guidelines, an inventory of data systems, relevant NOAA, national, and international standards, and recommendations for developing data management plans.”

Welcome to the NOAA Environmental Data Management Wiki!

This wiki contains guidelines, best practices and information on policies, standards and tools being considered, used or developed across NOAA and in the broader environmental data management community. It is intended to help you find resources and connect to others in order to improve the access, interoperability, and usability of environmental information.

The wiki uses “Categories” to help organize and manage content (see Wikipedia Categories Page for information about using categories). The Categories link in the navigation menu on the left links to the Categories List from any page in the wiki. See using the NOAA Environmental Data Management Wiki page for additional tips on using the wiki.
