Data management for the ecological sciences (Hosted by NCEAS)
- O. J. Reichman
|Meeting||15th—16th July 1997||Participant List|
Data management is a key element in facilitating integrative and synthetic research within the ecological discipline, and constitutes an important focus of efforts for NCEAS. We recognize that a number of other institutions have long-standing commitments to developing tools and standards for use in data management and documentation. Our goal is to try to foster communication among a number of these organizations in order to speed the production of critical technologies and standards for managing ecological and environmental data. We hope to generate a proposal for a multi-institutional data management initiative by the end of this meeting.
