Geodata clearing house

"[G]eospatial data are critically important for disaster response, protecting the environment, and many other challenges. But much of this information is in danger of being lost due to evolving technology and other threats."
"The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program will fund development of a CIESIN clearinghouse at Columbia's Earth Institute ... These electronic resources are essential to research, education, and sustainable development and only grow more valuable over time."
