How to participate
For companies, organizations, and individuals interested in joining with NOAA's Big Data Project, several “data alliances” have been formed. Each data alliance is anchored by a participating Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) institution (a “Collaborator”), and represents a market ecosystem built around one or more of NOAA’s datasets. The data alliance is a flexible concept, and may consist of larger companies that represent various economic sectors, such as the weather or insurance industries, specialized small business, value-added resellers, entrepreneurs, researchers and non-profits, etc. The data alliance structure allows market forces to act on the identification, extraction, and development of NOAA public data resources, and provides a mechanism for interested parties to work together to develop new business and research opportunities. The organizations comprising the ecosystem are free to participate in multiple data alliances.
