As the web continues to connect individuals, communities, and information, exciting opportunities emerge for digital collaboration. Open repositories providing free, timely access to authoritative datasets are expanding in several domains (government, earth sciences, biology). Open Source software and web standards provide efficient, powerful tools to work with these data. By exploring these tools you can extend technical skills and engage in new forms of inquiry, problem solving, and collaboration.
