Webinar Abstract

The Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is an NSF-supported DataNet project which is developing a distributed framework and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that meets 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.
