DataONE: Data Observation Network for Earth


Thu Jul 14th 10:00am to 11:00am PDT


Amber Budden, Dave Vieglais


The Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is a community driven, NSF-supported DataNet project providing distributed, sustainable cyberinfrastructure and community resources to meet the needs of science and society for open, persistent, robust, and secure access to well-described and easily discovered Earth observational data. Now in its seventh year of funding, DataONE has released a number of tools, services and programs that support users in their data management, discovery, preservation and education needs. In this overview we will introduce the guiding principles of DataONE, the primary components of the DataONE cyberinfrastructure, provide a brief demonstration of some of the DataONE tools and services and discuss future development and activities.

DataONE is a collaboration among many partner organizations, and is funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) under a Cooperative Agreement.
