Detailed Description

A data repository is a centralized place to store and maintain data. A repository can consist of one or more databases or files which can be distributed over a network. Data repositories are often overseen by data curation personnel who ensure that files are managed and preserved for the long-term. USGS is currently in the process of formally evaluating and designating official USGS repositories.
