Url: http://www.ciesin.columbia.edu/
Publisher: Center for International Earth Science Information Network
Description: The very productive Earth Institute at Columbia University has a number of centers within its ambit, including The Center for International Earth Science. Their specialty happens to be on-line data and information management, along with spatial data integration and training and interdisciplinary research related to human interactions in the environment. From their homepage, visitors can learn more about some of their programs and projects, which include "Geoinformatics for Geochemistry" and their collection of climate change resources for the New York metropolitan area. Most users will also want to take a look at the "Educational Resources" area, as it contains information sheets that provide overviews of their online data resources, which include a wetlands database and thematic guides to human dimensions of global environmental change.
