Guidance for Data Providers

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2001-11-16

Are you planning to submit data to the ORNL DAAC to be archived and distributed to others? If so, we suggest that you look at our guidance on data management practices.

At the request of data providers, we developed the guidance so all data products will meet basic standards before they are archived or distributed.

Guidance is provided for essential information such as file names, file formats, data documentation, and metadata--that is, information about the data.
