Polar Data Planning Summit - Boulder, Colorado USA; 22-24 May, 2018

A number of recent conferences, workshops and meetings have confirmed that there are many national, regional and local projects and programs that are active in polar data management and stewardship and that also have a mandate or desire to contribute to regional or international coordination of efforts and activities. Many of those initiatives have resources available and are making progress towards an envisioned connected, interoperable polar data system. The international polar data community is eager to improve cooperation and coordination of their efforts.
