Rhiza’s CEO, Josh Knauer, is participating during events today at the White House around the launch of the new climate data clearinghouse climate.data.gov. As part of Knauer’s service on the President’s Council of Science and Technology, Knauer co-authored a report that was presented to John Holdren and President Obama where the concept of a data clearinghouse for climate change data collected from federal, state and local governments, as well as academic research data.
Today’s launch of the new climate data clearinghouse reflects the type of open data sharing initiatives that Knauer has been advocating for many years. A core value of Rhiza is to encourage going beyond just serving our customers to make data actionable, but to also actively share our experiences in creating innovative data sharing tools to help our community, both locally and globally.
