Paleobiology Database (PaleoDB) is a non-governmental, non-profit public
resource for paleontological data. Its purpose is to provide global,
collection-based occurrence and taxonomic data for organisms of all
geological ages, as well as data services to allow easy access to data for
independent development of analytical tools, visualization software, and
applications of all types. The Database's broader goal is to encourage and
enable data-driven collaborative efforts that address large-scale
paleobiological questions.

World Data Center for Paleoclimatology (David M. Anderson, NOAA National
Climatic Data Center)

The format is 20 minutes per presenter, with two main parts: (a) a
show-and-tell presentation of the science and the resource (b) discussion
of the key informatics needs that the resource is facing. The intended
audience for this webinar is professional paleogeoscientists and
cyber/computer scientists.  All webinars will be recorded and publicly
archived at http://workspace.earthcube.org/c4p/content/c4p-webinars.
