Greetings!    (01)

You and your colleagues are invited to Collaborative Expedition workshop 
#64, "Mapping and Navigating the Waterways of Public Information: 
Connecting People to Science and Scholarly Knowledge". The purpose of the 
workshop is to learn how to make it easier for citizens to navigate public 
information (including scientific, cultural, and scholarly knowledge). 
Participants will be introduced to data analysis tools and research 
practices becoming available to make it easier to work with colleagues 
from other agencies to improve citizens' overall experience with science 
repositories - from mapping Mars to better appreciation of environmental 
and historical features of their own neighborhoods.  Participants will 
also shared lessons learned from employing knowledge mapping techniques, 
data visualization, and innovative data stewardship techniques.  The 
workshop will open up dialogue to facilitate "bootstrapping" among 
multiple communities and institutions committed to advancing public access 
to electronically stored information, including scientific and cultural 
heritage collections.     (02)
