11 Summary Activities Assistance for data contribution Assistance for creating AMD record Improved search of data Automation of processes Future issues: Submission of non-NSF data Quality control of submitted data

12 USAP-Data Coordination Center update USAP-Data Coordination Center (USAP-DCC) web submission page k keyword search interface to enable users to find Antarctic programs and data sets of interest in the Antarctic Master Directory of the GCMD. ~50 scientists per year were assisted in documenting ~15 orphan data sets new data access services: on-the fly generation of KMZ format files for accessing all records within the Antarctic Master Directory through either GoogleEarth of Google Maps. more Gaouls nad Palmer data avaialbe
