This training workshop - organised within the framework of the eLTER H2020 project - will demonstrate and provide training on the different aspects of eLTER-related information management. It will be an important forum enabling the exchange of ideas between Long-Term Ecosystem Research (LTER) scientists and those in the information management community.

Who is it aimed at?

The training will address LTER scientists as well as data managers from LTER sites. By focusing on the practical aspects of data sharing and provision, both data provision and data use will be addressed. Places are limited to approximately 25 trainees.

What will we do?

Using data and material provided by the participants, the training will aim to interactively introduce and explain how to use the tools provided within the eLTER Information System. The sessions will provide relevant background information, demonstrate the tools and allow participants to use them with their own data.
‘What?’, ‘Where?’, ‘Who?’ and ‘How?’ are the basic questions addressed in the course. We will focus on the provision of metadata, ways to publish and share data using files and services, and how to find and use data from the eLTER Information System. You can bring your own data in order to discuss on how to best share the data with the LTER and scientific community.
The training will focus on

  • Site and dataset documentation with DEIMS-SDR
  • Provision of sensor data using the eLTER Central Data Node 
  • Discover and visualise data using the eLTER Data Integration Platform
  • Analyse time series data using R
