by:

Geoinformatics is the science and technology of developing and using information service sciences in addressing the problems related to geography, geosciences and other branches associated to engineering.

The Division of Earth Sciences, under the supervision of the National Science Foundation, is one of the departments that deals with the promotion and enhancement of the country's Geoinformatics-related programs.

The Division of Earth Sciences(EAR) has constituted ways to promote the development of cyberinfrastructure building activities aimed to eventually enable transformative advances in geosciences research and education.

In line with this objective, the EAR has established a solicitation program with a total anticipated budget of $4,800,000 that will award 5 to 10 eligible applicants the funds they need in developing their geosciences-related projects.

The aforementioned solicitation program will not support hardware development or major hardware purchases but the will normally comprise the following inclusions:

a) Identify targeted user communities and describe how the proposed activity will address the community's unmet needs

b) Exhibit exemplary awareness and thorough understanding of present informatics infrastructure and developments that might impact the proposed activity

c) Establish plans for the integration and compatibility of the proposed geoinformatics platform within current geoinformatics projects and activities.

Interested applicants are strongly recommended to contact the program officers of the EAR at the Grants.gov website in order to discuss their ideas and seek further clarifications.

In order to participate in this program, applications and proposals should be electronically submitted to the Grants.gov website on or before January 13, 2012.   (continued...)
