The Environmental Data Initiative is an NSF-funded project accelerating curation and archive of environmental data, emphasizing data from projects funded by the NSF DEB.  Programs served include, but are not limited to, Long Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB), Organization for Biological Field Stations (OBFS), MacroSystems Biology (MSB), and Long Term Ecological Research (LTER). EDI is committed to enable FAIR data with “FAIR” defined as Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable in the Guiding Principles of the GO (Global Open) FAIR Initiative (see here for enabling FAIR data FAQS by the Enabling FAIR Data Project).

We provide support, training, and resources to help archive and publish high-quality data and metadata. We operate a secure data repository and work closely with the LTER Network Communications Office and DataONE to promote data management best practices and stewardship. Our team consists of highly motivated and experienced data practitioners, software developers, and research scientists. This webinar gives an overview of EDI’s mission and core activities. Please contact us to find out how we may be of assistance.
