Tremendous opportunities await in the exploitation of deep time data. New and expanded databases are becoming available. EarthCube and other projects are bringing opportunities for data integration and mining into focus. Powerful statistical approaches and visualization methods are being brought to bear on scientific questions of mutual interest; for example, the nature and timing of continental growth, the supercontinent cycle, changing redox state of the mantle and crust, and the co-evolving geosphere and biosphere. It's time to coordinate our disparate activities and find ways to leverage our interests. The Deep Carbon Observatory will thus co-sponsor the Deep Time Data Workshop as an opportunity for experts to explore the next steps in advancing the creation of a deep time data infrastructure.
