Geosciences research, given its interdisciplinary and inter-organizational nature, is often conducted using distributed networks of researchers and resources including instruments and platforms. To better enable the discovery of the research output from the scientists and resources used within these organizations, UCAR, Cornell University, and UNAVCO are collaborating on the EarthCollab project which seeks to leverage semantic technologies to manage and link scientific data. EarthCollab is using the VIVO open source semantic web application to build Connect UNAVCO (connect.unavco.org) and Arctic Data Connects (vivo.eol.ucar.edu). Connect UNAVCO and Arctic Data Connects link diverse communities with the datasets, publications, grants, and instruments respectively managed by UNAVCO and the Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) at NCAR.
