Global Croplands and Water Use is a USGS Powell Center Working Group and there web application creates a “knowledge gateway on data, products, approaches, methods, algorithms, models, and maps pertaining to global croplands and their water use that contributes towards global food security in the twenty-first century”.
Their Drupal web application provides a content management platform which allows group members to keep their site up-to-date with current publications, news, and meetings. A unique aspect of this application is its connection to the ScienceBase Catalog. Global Croplands pulls content from ScienceBase and dynamically generates content into a Drupal view, with different information displayed for anonymous and authenticated users.
