==Wiki Location==
+
{| style="border-collapse: collapse; border: medium none;" class="MsoTableGrid"
The Geo-IDE Wiki is moving to a new home in the [http://geo-ide.noaa.gov/ geo-ide.noaa.gov] domain. This process has been more difficult than anticipated and involves redirecting a number of URLs from one server to another. Our goal is to keep URLs for the original Wiki location working. These look like (for the Home Page):
+
|- style="height: 18.85pt;"
*https://nosc.noaa.gov/dmc/swg/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page
+
| width="638" valign="top" colspan="3" style="width: 6.65in; border-width: 1pt 1pt medium; border-style: solid solid none; border-color: windowtext windowtext -moz-use-text-color; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% rgb(0, 112, 192); padding: 0in 5.4pt; height: 18.85pt;" |
These URLs are currently being redirected to
+
'''<span style=""><font color="white">Welcome to the NOAA Environmental Data Management Wiki!</font></span>'''
*https://nosc.ngdc.noaa.gov/dmc/swg/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page
 
and will eventually end up at

This wiki contains information on a wide variety of standards and tools being considered, used
 
or developed across NOAA and in the environmental data community. Organizing this information
 
and making it easy to find is a challenge. The wiki provides Categories
 
to help this process (see Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Category Categories Page] for information about using categories). The Categories link in the navigation menu on the left links to the  
 
[[Special:Categories | Categories List]] from any page in the wiki. Please try using it to find information and help others by connecting pages you create to appropriate categories.
 
  
The largest category contains pages with information about the [https://geo-ide.noaa.gov/wiki/index.php?title=Category:ISO_19115 ISO 19115] metadata standard. There is also an [[ISO FAQ]] page with simple answers to frequently asked questions.

==Overview and Purpose of Wiki==
+
|- style="height: 6.25pt;"
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://geo-ide.noaa.gov/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.
