Visit the Polar Information Commons at the Oslo Science Conference!
The Polar Information Commons (PIC) creates a fast and easy-to-use open data resource accessible through normal search and browse tools. Using PIC tools, investigators quickly expose their data to the world and share them, thereby contributing to a repository for scientific data and information about the polar regions and participating in an innovative community-based infrastructure. The PIC goal is to rapidly enhance international and interdisciplinary research, education, planning, and management for the polar regions.
In Oslo, a PIC information area will demonstrate the PIC tools, highlight recent data advances and data services from many polar data centres (and PIC partners), and present an array of fresh and free polar information, from IPY IPO, UNEP, University of the Arctic, and others. Visit PIC to receive your complimentary copy of the new IPY book Polar Science and Global Climate - An International Resource for Education and Outreach.
