Science Node article "One-stop data shop" highlights the work of Bootcamp alumni

We recently reported that Carol Song of Purdue University and four co-PIs, including Jack Smith of Marshall University, were awarded a five-year, $4.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Both Song and Smith participated in SGCI’s  Science Gateways Bootcamps  while working on separate gateway projects. The grant will allow the team to build a “plug and play” platform, called GeoEDF, that will give researchers the ability to easily access and process geospatial...
