Getting Started

The diagram on the left shows the home page of the URR. In the page header, all URR pages include three links:

  • Feedback: opens up a questionnaire. We would appreciate your completing this questionnaire and providing your assessment of the URR. The URR is still under development, and your comments will be valuable input for this work.
  • Tutorials: brings you to the home page of the tutorials.
  • GEOSS Portal: is an external link, that opens up the GEOPortal.

The GEO logo above these links is clickable and points to the GEO home page.

The upper menu bar (dark blue) below the header is identical for all URR pages. The contents of the lower menu bar (lighter blue) depends on the main menu item selected.
