The Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity (KNB) is an international repository intended to facilitate ecological and environmental research. KNB was created to share, discover, access and interpret complex ecological data. Contextual information provided with KNB data allows scientists to integrate and analyze data. The data originate from a highly-distributed set of field stations, laboratories, research sites, and individual researchers. The foundation of the KNB is the detailed metadata provided by researchers, which promotes both automated and manual integration of data into new projects. As part of the KNB effort, data management software is developed in a free and open source manner, so other groups can build upon the tools. The KNB is powered by the Metacat data management system, and is optimized for handling data sets described using the Ecological Metadata Language, but can store any XML-based metadata document.
U.S. Census Bureau TIGER/Line Shapefiles and TIGER/Line® Files
The Census Bureau releases TIGER/Line shapefiles and metadata each year to the public. TIGER/Line shapefiles are spatial extracts from the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER database. They contain features such as roads, railroads, hydrographic features and legal and statistical boundaries.
Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost - Database
The Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (GTN-P) database stores information regarding essential climate variables (ECV) as part of the Global Terrestrial Network on Permafrost (GTN-P) programme. The database aims to provide information on the relationships between ground temperature, gas fluxes and the Earth’s climate system. GTN-P contains time series for borehole temperatures and grids of active layer thickness (TSP, CALM) plus air and surface temperature and moisture (DUE Permafrost, MODIS) measured in the terrestrial Panarctic, Antarctic and Mountainous realms.
World Ocean Atlas
The World Ocean Atlas (WOA) is a collection of objectively analyzed, quality controlled temperature, salinity, oxygen, phosphate, silicate, and nitrate means based on profile data from the World Ocean Database (WOD). It can be used to create boundary and/or initial conditions for a variety of ocean models, verify numerical simulations of the ocean, and corroborate satellite data.
