This is InfoBank's primary page about CMG's Field Activity Collection System (FACS).
  • FACS encompases metadata collection before, during, and after a Field Activity.

  • FACS' metadata facilitates the sorting, grouping, and re-purposing of field activity information and its associated data.


The data and information produced by our program are multi-disciplinary and must be easily accessible to you, other research scientists, Government policy makers, and the public.
Field Activity Collection System (FACS) provides a method for gathering fundamental information about field activities through these links:

Developed and maintained by USGS CMG FACS Team.
Please let us know about suggested improvements or problems.
