This is the webpage for Data. The discussions, news articles, and job announcements are hosted on the LinkedIn Group website.

DataCards is an attempt to promote discovery and sharing of data sources in support of irregular warfare and socio-cultural analysis, assessment, and modeling. DataCards is a collaborative index of sources of data. It initially focused on Afghanistan, but has expanded to include portals for every geographic region of the world (divided according to the U.S. Combatant Commands, or COCOMs). Each data source has its own “card” that provides a brief description of the source of data (i.e. metadata about the data source).
This effort will only succeed if everyone adds a data card for any source you are aware of that we don't currently have listed. You can do this via email or you can use one of the wiki versions described below.
We now offer access to the wiki verison of this capability to anyone with an internet connection. You will need to be granted a username and password. If you would like access just send me an email request with name, organizational affiliation, email address, phone #, and a brief description of the reason you want access. For those who have requested this access in the past, you should be receiving passwords later this afternoon, but don't hesitate to contact me if you don't.
The internet-accessible version is at http://www.datacards.org
For those with CAC cards, you can continue to access the protected version of the wiki at https://datacards.osd.mil. There will be minor differences in content between the two but they will be synchronized regularly.

More data cards--though our primary focus remains Afghanistan, Mexico, and Africa

To ensure widest possible sharing, we are continuing to distribute this index as an Excel spreadsheet. Each row in the spreadsheet represents the content of the “cards.” However, the wiki version is much more capable--you are encouraged to give it a try.
We are always open to suggestions or advice. Please feel free to share and distribute this email to any interested parties. And please, keep adding data cards for your sources of data.
