Title: Spatial access to, and display of, global change data: Avenues for libraries
Author(s): Hill, Linda L.
Subject(s): Global Change Data and Information System Geospatial information retrieval
Abstract: Geospatial retrieval systems are considered in the framework of the U.S. Global Change Data and Information System (GCDIS), a cooperative effort of a set of federal agencies that have vast amounts of data and information relevant to the global change user community. The characteristics of an ideal geospatial retrieval system are proposed and five existing systems are described as examples of the types of spatial retrieval available today. Existing systems fall far short of the ideal system envisioned but show exciting promise. Librarians can participate in the evaluation of these systems and in the evolving development of GCDIS through the Library Information Subgroup of the Global Change Data Management Working Group.
