NGDC provides scientific stewardship for data from the ocean floor and lakebeds

Permanent Archive

We’re in it for the Long Haul,

Preserving data for your great-grandchildren

Data Rescue & Digitizing

Rescuing data from scientists’ desks and file cabinets.

Data Access

Making data freely and publicly available.

Permanent Archive

We’re in it for the Long Haul,

Preserving data for your great-grandchildren

  • 2.86 terabytes of sediment/rock data & images archived

  • Archived in software-independent form, to NARA standards using Open Archive Information System (OAIS) guidelines

  • Documentation in FGDC form, moving to ISO 19115

  • Archive periodically migrated to new media

    • moving from LTO-3 to LTO-4 this summer

Data Rescue & Digitizing

Rescuing data from scientists’ desks and file cabinets.

NOAA’s Climate Database Modernization Program (CDMP) is a partnership with private industry to image and key paper & film records and make them available on the Web.


Ngdc noaa mgg

Data Access

Making data freely and publicly available.

  • Geospatially-enabled relational databases

  • Web services (Feature & Map) & browse tools

  • ArcIMS viewers (in migration to ArcGIS Server)

  • Metadata access via Geospatial One-Stop/GCMD

  • Collaboration with MGDS/R2R/UNEP-GRID/SESAR

  • Links to Related Data (reciprocal links encouraged)

  • Working on near-line access to entire 190+ tb archive


Why add your data to the long term archive

Why add your data to the long-term archive?

  • NOAA/NGDC’s mandate includes a commitment to provide access to, and long-term archival for data pertaining to sea floor and lakebed samples.

  • NGDC data archives are maintained to NARA standards with offsite backups, storage on approved media, and periodic migration to new media and technologies.

  • Funded projects end, scientists retire, and institutional resources for maintaining scientific data and records can change – place a copy in the archive to ensure its continued accessibility to the scientific community

We’re in it for the Long Haul,

Preserving data for your great-grandchildren

Index to Marine & Lacustrine Geological Samples Database

Ways to Access the Database

  • JSP Text Interface

  • Web Feature Service

  • Web Map Service

  • ArcIMS Web Interface(migrating to ArcGIS Server)

The Database provides access to:

Information about samples + related data and images

available from NGDC, participating repositories, & other sources

Web Access to the Database

12-month period May 2008-April 2009

~ 937 requests/day (331,484 total) after robots removed

~ 246 megabytes/day downloaded

14,632 distinct hosts served over the year

> 56,000 searches of the JSP interface

> 8,870 accesses of the web services (WMS, WFS)

> 2,100 accesses of the ArcIMS map

Other Database Additions/Modifications

  • 26,281 Cruise/leg cross-correlationsMGDS/SIO Explorer Standard Ids were found for samples in the Index database and added as a new parameter. Existing cruise identifiers were kept in their original form.

    This is an ongoing effort for historic samples.

    Most new samples, at least from UNOLS ships are expected to use the more standard cruise/legs.

Cruise/leg Options

  • Search by old cruise

  • Search by new cruise/leg

  • Search results display both for each sample selected

Requests to the Curators’ Consortium

  • Please check your contact information & send us corrections

  • Help keep the Index up to date, send data for new samples in your collection

  • Please help add standardized leg information for your older samples

  • Make use of the Index on your web sites via links and web services, we will be happy to assist you

  • Please take advantage of NOAA’s CDMP to scan/enter remaining materials related to your collections. There is room in the 2009 budget for additional digitization. 2009 may be the final year.
