GC-ASK is a key initiative of the Federal government's Global Change
Data and Information System. Its mission is to provide the easiest,
most effective access to the vast and diverse sources of data which
comprise global change information. GC-ASK will serve the many
communities of users - from elementary school students, to scientists
and researchers - who need to observe, understand and predict global
environmental change, and its social, political and economic impacts.
GC-ASK combines advanced products and technologies for information
searching and viewing, geographical and spatial data processing, and
Internet access to create a new, powerful, yet easy-to-use online
information system.
