Answers to questions, Repository

Are my data appropriate for the EDI repository?

The EDI repository houses ecological/environmental data. Data types typically found in the repository include: observational data, experimental data, data used in a scientific article, synthesis data, and model outputs. However, storage space is not unlimited and we ask that you contact us to let us know what your specific needs are. Generally we recommend to not archive anything and everything, but consider the current and future value of your data. This is a challenging mental exercise with no clear right or wrong answer, but we are here to consult if you’d like to discuss.
