In the Summer 2019 Issue of LTER’s Databits an article by Mark Servilla, Duane Costa, and James Brunt (Environmental Data Initiative, University of New Mexico) on the functionality of the EDI Dashboard was published. The article is also available on our website as part of the resources on the “Five Phases of Data Publishing (4)” here or as pdf file.
A full slate for the Summer 2019 Databits! Site Bytes makes a triumphant return after a long absence. There is also plenty of information on new initiatives, including upgrades to PASTA, Best Practices for using Zotero to manage bibliographic data, development of a core metabase for metadata management, a chance to catch up on a former colleague, some reports and article reviews and finally, an extended primer on semantic annotation. Enjoy! – John Porter & Sven Bohm, editors
