Preliminary Principles and Guidelines for Archiving by National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life

By National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life Studies, Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate, Committee on Archiving and Accessing Environmental and Geospatial Data at NOAA

The nationwide Oceanic and Atmospheric management (NOAA) collects and manages a variety of environmental and geospatial info to satisfy its challenge requirements--data that reach from the skin of the sunlight to the center of the earth, and have an effect on each point of society. With constrained assets and large progress in facts volumes, NOAA requested the nationwide Academies for recommendation on the best way to archive and supply entry to those facts. This publication bargains initial ideas and directions that NOAA and its companions can use to start making plans particular archiving techniques for the information streams they at present acquire. for instance, the ebook concludes that the choice to archive environmental or geospatial info will be pushed via its present or destiny worth to society, and that investment for environmental and geospatial measurements may still contain enough assets to archive and supply entry to the information those efforts generate. The initial ideas and guidance proposed during this e-book could be subtle and accelerated to hide info entry concerns in a last booklet anticipated to be published in 2007.
