Around the Federation

Virtual Hackathon on Glacier Vocabularies
Water is one of the most important resources on Earth, requiring careful management. Much progress has been made on the semantic representation of where water is stored and flows as part of a number of ongoing standardization efforts. However, one of the most significant stores of freshwater, namely glaciers, ice sheets and related entities (e.g. permanent snow, icebergs, etc.), is not well represented despite them containing more than 68% of all freshwater and covering more than 10% of the Earth’s landmass (ref: https://water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycleice.html).

This February there will be a VoCamp to work on Glacier vocabularies. Check out the full details on this upcoming event here: https://github.com/Vocamp/Virtual-Hackahon-on-Glacier-topic/wiki
