More Monthly Blog Posts by WDS-SC!

After the popularity and success of the inaugural series of entries by WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC) members on the WDS Blog, we are very pleased to announce the start of a second round of monthly WDS-SC posts. These posts will span the year leading up to International Data Week 2018, and as ever, will cover topics that the WDS-SC are currently involved in and that we hope are of interest to the WDS community.

The first post in the new WDS-SC series is written by Alex de Sherbinin and his colleague Lindsey Harriman. It highlights a collaboration between two WDS Regular Members under NASA—the Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center and the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center—and the power that is gained to answer major research questions when multidisciplinary scientific datasets are integrated and made openly available: From People to Pixels: Integrating Data Across the NASA DAACs.
