Data Management Tools
Good data management enables the location, sharing, and reuse of data, and reduces the redundancy of data. These attributes of good data management reduce costs in terms of time and money. Data management tools and best practices can also help to meet the open data requirements of making data more accessible and discoverable.
The OME is an online metadata creation tool that allows scientists to document their data using the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata by answering simple questions about their data.
ScienceBase is data and information management infrastructure that enables data upload, documentation, sharing, and dynamic data services using standards-compliant methods and technological components. ScienceBase furnishes a foundation for data stewardship, government open data, and scientific discovery.
The DOI Tool allows creation of a permanent DOI for released USGS science data.
The USGS Legacy Data and Information Reporting System (LDIRS) is an online tool to facilitate the inventory and preservation of USGS legacy data. The LDIRS inventories and reports are available to all USGS employees and getting started is easy!
Find out how much rain has fallen—how many gallons have come down from the skies onto your roof, yard, block, or town.
This software allows agencies, organizations, and individuals to download an empty, stand-alone Land Treatment Digital Library database to individual or networked computers. Data entered in these databases may be submitted to the USGS for possible inclusion in the online Land Treatment Digital Library (https://ltdl.wr.usgs.gov).
Genetic Landscapes GIS Toolbox: Tools to create genetic divergence and diversity landscapes in ArcGIS
A new analysis approach in landscape genetics and phylogeography is the creation of “genetic landscapes” to visualize genetic structure across geographic space. The Genetic Landscapes GIS Toolbox contains four tools to map genetic landscapes and to summarize multiple genetic landscapes as average and variance surfaces in ArcGIS ® (Environmental Science Research Institute, Redlands, CA, USA).
This is a macro-embedded EXCEL program designed to easily accept input from downloaded stream gage records or output from the RIVERWARE reservoir operations model being used for the upstream Aspinall Unit.
