The Information Management Code Registry (IMCR) is a community informed resource to enhance the use and value of Environmental Science data by facilitating discovery of software solutions for information management needs. The primary goal of the IMCR is to create an extensive registry of information management software that is searchable by task (e.g. quality control) and other attributes (e.g. software language). Our secondary goal is to highlight coverage gaps of information management software and help shift redundant effort to new development.

The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) hosted a hackathon at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, June 11-13, 2019 to collaboratively design and develop software supporting data visualization. Ten participants, including LTER information managers, graduate students, and post-docs, enthusiastically joined this effort. For more information please see here.
The Environmental Data Initiative invites you to participate in the continuing development of the Information Management Code Registry with a hackathon at UNM in Albuquerque, NM on June 10 – June 14, 2019 (Monday, June 10 and Friday, June 14 are travel days). All coders and wannabe coders who have at least some experience with R or Python and an interest in writing new code or contributing existing code to the Registry are invited to contact us. EDI will cover all travel, meal and lodging expenses. The theme of this hackathon is “Data Visualization for Assessing Data Fitness for Use.”
The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) hosted a hackathon at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, June 12-14, to collaboratively design and develop software supporting the activities of information managers and scientists working with environmental data. We used the Open Space Technology approach to guide project development and gained valuable insights into hosting a successful hackathon from Deborah Paul and Mathew Collins of iDigBio. For more information please see here.
EDI received feedback for its Request For Comments (RFC) for establishment of a data registry, from participants of the ESIP working group along with EDI’s email list of environmental information managers. Subsequent updates on the code registry development can be found here.
