Submit Data

There are two ways to submit data in the EDI data repository:

1. EDI Data Curation Services

EDI’s Data Curation Team will do the data packaging and upload to the repository for you. Simply fill out EDI’s Metadata Template for each dataset you intend to archive and send it with your data to info@environmentaldatainitiative.org.

2. Do-it-yourself

You are welcome to package and upload data to the repository yourself. Data packaging involves organizing, cleaning, and describing your data with information rich EML metadata. Uploading involves a repository user account and some familiarity with EDI’s Data Portal. Reference the Five Phases of Data Publishing for details on each of these steps. Contact info@environmentaldatainitiative.org if you have any questions.
