Population and Ecological Data Tools and Services: An Introduction to Working with Terra Populus and DataONE (FREE but must register for workshop)
This workshop will introduce participants to the suite of openly accessible data, tools and resources provided by Terra Populus and DataONE. TerraPop provides access to a global collection of population and environmental data, drawing on microdata, area-level data, and raster sources, along with tools for integrating data from multiple sources. DataONE enables federated search across over 20 data repositories, along with a range of data management tools and resources. Participants will be shown how to retrieve data from the two networks, learn about best practices for working with data and be guided through the research data life-cycle and the services available at each of the steps.
