How to Archive Data Using ESS-DIVE
ESS-DIVE will store “data packages,” which are best described as a collection of related data files and metadata. These may be data from a sensor or a network of sensors, data from a field campaign or experiment, software for analysis or modeling, model setup and results.
- A user wishing to submit data to the archive gathers the files to be included in a data package, and uploads them to the archive via a web portal or automatically via a web services interface.
- The user specifies metadata associated with the data package, including author and citation information, as well as links to related data packages. This information can be updated at a later date.
- The user then submits the data package, and receives a system-assigned unique identifier for the data package. The data contributor will receive information about data downloads and usage.
