We are happy to announce the Community Ontology Repository (COR) is now hosted by ESIP! COR is a web application and service to create, update, access, and map ontologies and their terms. Acting as a community knowledge base, COR offers a growing community base with a broad variety of Earth science artifacts encoded according to semantic and linked data principles. COR’s principle values are linked to community leadership and open source software with all aspects of the system being free and open.
