Introducing Sourcemap: the Open Source Platform for Sustainability and Supply Chain Transparency

submitted by: amerigo
How can we begin to make sustainable decisions without information about the products and services we buy? At Sourcemap, we believe you have a right to know where things come from and what they're made of. Sourcemap is a free and open platform for understanding the social and environmental impacts of modern supply chains. It is a rich social tool for crowd-sourcing information from producers, designers and consumers to build a comprehensive catalog of consumer products. Built-in...

Gregor Mobius - visualDNA/transcription2

submitted by: gregormobius
Visual method for representing five DNA and RNA bases U C A G T with five discrete values on the gray-scale: black (100%), dark (75%), gray(50%), light (25%) and white(0%) www.visualDNA.org This animation illustrates a proposal to replace the nucleic bases letter representation with five discrete values on the gray scale. Instead of letters UCAGT this concept employs five discrete values U=Black, C= Dark, A=Gray, G=light, and T= White. Value of "black" is defined as "absence of light",...

LTER ASM Working group: Assessing the IM Training Video Series

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is
The development of a series of training videos on information management topics has been initiated. These are available at the IM training video resource link in the working group materials. To guide the content and format of future videos, we invite all ILTER and US LTER information managers to come to this meeting and watch and comment on two of the existing videos. We will also invite information managers with well-established information management systems to participate in a...

Sensor network technologies: Recent innovations and tools for management and analysis of sensor data (Part 2)

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is
The deployment of innovative sensor technologies and high performance wireless communication at ecological field research locations is generating large volumes of near real-time data streams that allow for unprecedented scientific questions and educational opportunities. Accompanying this sensor network development is a crucial need for tools to control, process, coordinate, validate, and analyze multiple data streams. These innovative approaches or technology tools include, for example,...
