NISC Nexus – Member Portal Launched

User credentials for NISC members will be issued this week! The portal contains the following four sections:

  1. Member Directory
  2. Discussion Forums
  3. Resource Repository (documents and code)
  4. Requests and Submissions

Content highlights include solicitations for feedback on the the U.S. Central Earthquake Consortium’s draft Data Publication Guidance, and an assessment report on emergency sources of Big Data that was compiled by MITRE and submitted to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Interoperability and Compatibility. Additionally, NISC Chair, Chief Charles Werner, has posted a call for issues related to accessing National Weather Service data during severe weather events. Chief Werner will be meeting with the Chief Information Officer of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration later this month and is committed to bringing your issues to the table.
