Safety Data Challenge

Safety Data AdvertisementThe White House Office of Public Engagement, the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the U.S. Department of Transportation announced on September 14, 2012 that new safety data resources have been made available, including valuable, real-time tools to provide details about natural disasters and improve preparedness and emergency response. The announcement challenges innovators from the private, nonprofit, and academic sectors to utilize freely available scientific data on natural hazards, to build products, services, and apps that advance public safety in creative and powerful ways. These new safety data resources are being made available on http://www.data.gov/communities/safety.

In addition, the National Science Foundation is pointing to links of relevant NSF Funded Data that may be useful for this challenge and DataONE is assisting in this effort. The links below provide descriptions of relevant data in addition to URLs for further exploration. Please note, a number of these repositories are not currently part of the DataONE network and so are not retrievable through a DataONE search. The data being provided are not NSF data. They are a result of NSF funded research and are being made available by the PI and the institution. NSF cannot attest to the veracity of the data being made available.

CUAHSI WaterOneFlow Web Services API Documentation

The external link below provides neccesary documentation for API’s to access the CUAHSI Hydrologic Information System metadata catalog of water time-series data from more than 90 federal, state and provincial governments, universities and NGOs transmitted using WaterML.

A windows platform client is available for the CUAHSI Hydrologic Information System that accesses more than 23 million water time series data from federal, state and provincial governments, universities and NGOs. The client integrates an open-source geographic information system with time series analysis tools and exports data in standard formats.
