Kepler is not about astronomy!  Rather, Kepler is a scientific workflow application first developed by a consortium of ecologists, biodiversity scientists, computer scientists, and ecoinformatics researchers over 10 years ago!  Kepler enables scientists to construct, visualize, execute, and share potentially complex analyses, with useful built-in capabilities for ecology, biodiversity sciences, bioinformatics, oceanograpy and even seismology.  Kepler is free, and runs on Windows, Macs, and Linux.  Find out about the latest features of Kepler, that include exciting new capabilities to interact with the DataONE repository.
