Site of the Month GEO Great Lakes
data.glos.us/geo-greatlakes/

GLIN's August Site of the Month is GEO Great Lakes. GEO Great Lakes is a working group that is part of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). It was established as a testbed to support data collaboration efforts between the United States and Canada for the Great Lakes Region. The goal of this group is to make bi-national datasets discoverable (easy to find), transparent (easy to understand), and interoperable (easy to use). These needs are met through application of internationally accepted standards to ensure that the data are accurate, consistent and verified.

The website provides an overview of ongoing efforts and access to the Great Lakes GEO Network Metadata Catalog. It also provides links to its various partner organizations such as Environment Canada, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS), the Great Lakes Information Network (GLIN), and many more. The group welcomes the addition of datasets to our core collection and additional collaboration with other organizations and groups.

Overview
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
