What does this tool do?
ScienceBase is a Trusted Digital Repository (TDR) in the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The platform is developed and maintained by the USGS Science Analytics and Synthesis (SAS) Science Data Management (SDM) team to provide both permission-controlled and public access to scientific data products and bureau resources.
ScienceBase provides a number of features that scientists can use to build data collections, share data through web services, and ensure that these data are preserved for use by future researchers. The project supports open data, re-usable vocabularies, contact management, repository services, content security, and the handling of large datasets.
Who is the audience for this tool?
ScienceBase is a resource for USGS employees and individuals or groups working in partnership or as collaborators with the USGS (partner efforts must have one or more USGS participants).
