The Unidata Users Committee has the responsibility to provide
community-wide input to help guide the evolution of the Unidata
program. At our Spring meeting, the Committee decided it was time to
once again survey the user community in order to assess the use of
data and tools, demographics, satisfaction with Unidata, etc., and a
sub-committee was formed to create the 2010 Unidata Users Survey.
Your anonymous input is always a vital part of defining and shaping
the future of Unidata and providing supporting metrics for the
National Science Foundation, since Unidata must write a grant proposal
to NSF every 5 years to obtain core funding; therefore, we hope you
will take just a few minutes to complete this on-line survey.
Please click the link below to get started. NOTE: On the first page,
it is important to answer completely your role(s) and the tools and
data you use, since the rest of the survey questions are driven by
We hope you will find this easy and convenient. If you have any
problems or questions, please send an email to:
Please complete the survey by October 8th so that we may begin the
analysis of the results before our next Committee meetings.
Thank you again for taking the time to help us out!
