Data Management Tools & Programs
Data Management Short Course for Scientists
The ESIP Federation, in cooperation with NOAA and the Data Conservancy, seeks to share the community's knowledge with scientists who increasingly need to be better data managers, as well as to support workforce development for new data management professionals.
Create a data management plan for your grant. This supports NSF and NIH data management plan templates, among others. DMPTOOL is a service of the University of California Curation Center of the California Digital Library.
IEDA Data Management Plan (DMP) Tool
Provides an easy way to generate a DMP for inclusion in NSF proposals. Focus is on solid earth data from the marine, terrestrial, and polar environments. Created by Integrated Earth Data Applications at Columbia University.
Data Sources and Repositories
An archiving tool that allows you to easily submit your data files and related documentation to the National Centers for Environmental Information for long term preservation, stewardship, and access.
Ocean CO2 WAVES Search Engine
The Web-Accessible Visualization and Extraction System (WAVES) interface permits users to search GLobal Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP) and CARbon IN the Atlantic Ocean (CARINA) Data Synthesis Project. Created by Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center based at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Oceanography Repositories from re3data.org
re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines.
The information system PANGAEA is operated as an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research. The system guarantees long-term availability of its content through a commitment of the operating institutions.
Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Information and Data Cooperative (GRIIDC)
A data management system for scientific data generated by Gulf of Mexico researchers. Researchers from diverse fields of study, including biology, chemistry, physical oceanography, sociology, political science and public health, are able to store their data in the GRIIDC system.
The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO)
Work with investigators to serve data online from research projects funded by the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Sections and the Division of Polar Programs Antarctic Organisms & Ecosystems Program at the U.S. National Science Foundation.
The home of the U.S. Government’s open data
Here you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, design data visualizations, and more.
National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC)
The World's largest collection of freely available oceanographic data with water temperatures dating back to the late 1700's.
National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC)
Supports research into our world’s frozen realms: the snow, ice, glaciers, frozen ground, and climate interactions that make up Earth’s cryosphere.
