How to Submit Your Data

Work with our Data Curation Team

We have two options for submitting data:

  1. ezEML – A form-based online tool for creating metadata in the Ecological Metadata Language (EML). Here’s a short video to help you get started with ezEML.
  2. EDI Metadata Template – A MS Word file for your metadata. Fill it out and send it back to us with your data, at info@environmentaldatainitiative.org.

We will get back to you A.S.A.P., usually within 24 hours. Contact us with any questions or if you need help getting started: info@environmentaldatainitiative.org

For Data Managers

You are welcome to manage upload of your data and metadata to our repository. The 5 Phases of Data Publication is your guide to this process. Please contact us for more information or login to your EDI data portal account.
