New Geoinformatics solicitation
A new solicitation has been posted for the NSF Geoinformatics (GI) program from the Division of Earth Sciences. Please note that there are substantive changes to the program, including the addition of three possible tracks for projects. The target date for submission of proposals is August 15, 2019.

The announcement of the program and link to the solicitation may be found at:

A webinar will be held on Tuesday, May 14 at 2 pm EDT, with a brief overview of the program and the opportunity to ask questions. Please email swhitmey<at><swhitmey<at>> by 5 pm on Friday, May 10 to enroll in the webinar.

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) will consider proposals for the development of cyberinfrastructure (CI) for the Earth Sciences (Geoinformatics). EAR-supported geoinformatics opportunities will fit into three tracks: Catalytic track, Facility track, and Sustainability track. These tracks broadly support the lifecycle of geoinformatics resource development, from pilots (Catalytic) to broad implementation (Facility) to sunsetting and long-term sustainability (Sustainability).
The GI Catalytic Track will support pilot geoinformatics development efforts that are intended to serve Earth Sciences research.
The GI Facility Track will support awards for implementation and operation of a cyberinfrastructure resource relied upon by one or more Earth Science communities to address science questions.
The GI Sustainability Track will support development and implementation of sustainable funding models to preserve data and software products of value to Earth Science research.
