Data Distribution and Access

Recommendations for

Workshop Report

John Dwyer, Rapporteur

slide2

On data management system design

  • Further level of design requires more explicit enumeration of requirements!
  • The NACP system should be decentralized, to the extent practicable
  • NACP web portal that contains an index of metadata, data, and services
  • Enable subscription services to notify investigators when data, products, and/or services are available
  • Establish definitions and standards for data QA/QC, uncertainties, error analyses
  • Services to facilitate data search and query should range from data catalogue entries (structured database) to free text metadata search (Google-type search)
  • Incorporate open source collaboration principles in system development efforts (portal design, data filters, format conversion, web mapping services, cross-platform compatibility)
slide3

Identify near-term activities (pilot/prototype) as well as long term activities

  • Short Term
  • Identify and prioritize data sets of greatest common need, with priority given to currently funded NACP projects
    • Especially with regard to issues of restricted access (FIA, NRCS)
    • Commercial remotely sensed data
  • Identify and prioritize data processing services of greatest common need, i.e. obstacles to the ready use of data/products, with priority given to currently funded NACP projects
  • Develop an NACP web portal
  • Communicate data management policy to NACP-funded investigators
  • Develop a NACP Data Policy
    • Define criteria for making NACP data accessible to NACP investigators
    • Define criteria for making NACP data publicly accessible
slide4

Long Term

  • Establish a Data Management Working Group, comprised science
  • data users and data system developers, that reports to the
  • Science Steering Group
  • Formulate a policy and strategy for long term archive of data
  • and products developed by NACP project activities
slide5

Resources required

  • At least 1 FTE for design and development of a NACP web portal
  • At least 1 FTE for design and development of a NACP metadata editor
  • Leverage existing capabilities and resources (i.e. existing open source software tools)
  • NACP PIs must plan to allocate resources to support the NACP Data Management System (i.e. document data collection methods, prepare metadata, QA/QC information, quantified measures of uncertainty)
slide6

Interfaces between agencies and data centers

  • Establish program level MOUs where necessary and feasible
  • Leverage services from agency data centers to the greatest extent possible
slide7

Elements of the NACP data policy

  • Adherence to existing national/international data policies
  • Minimize, to the extent possible, the exclusive period of data use
  • Encourage early and open access to data by NACP investigators
  • Public access to NACP data once data have achieved a scientifically credible level of QA/QC and peer review
  • No restrictions on data use or redistribution, with the exceptions to constraints imposed by non-NACP data contributors (i.e. international, commercial)
slide8

How to exert oversight and management of the NACP Data Management Program

  • Define a charter for the Data Management Working Group
  • NACP funding agencies should encourage funded PIs to adhere to NACP data management guidelines and policies
  • Success of the data management system is largely contingent upon collective adherence to guidelines and recommendations
