ready Geographic Tagged Image File Format

Abbreviation: GeoTIFF


General Information
The Geographic Tagged Image File Format (GeoTIFF) format is used throughout the geospatial and earth science communities to share geographic image data. GeoTIFF is based on the TIFF format and is used as an interchange format for georeferenced raster imagery. GeoTIFF defines a set of TIFF tags provided to describe all "Cartographic" information associated with TIFF imagery that originates from satellite imaging systems, scanned aerial photography, scanned maps, digital elevation models, or as a result of geographic analyses. The goal is to provide a consistent mechanism for referencing a raster image to a known model space or earth-based coordinate reference system and for describing those coordinate reference systems.

Ag Data Commons
The Ag Data Commons is a public, government, scientific research data catalog and repository available to help the agricultural research community share and discover research data funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and meet Federal open access requirements. Ag Data Commons holds data files managed directly by NAL and also links to datasets and resources located on other websites. The Ag Data Commons provides access to a wide variety of open data relevant to agricultural research and related domains. These may include subjects such as agronomy, genomics, hydrology, soils, agro-ecosystems, sustainability science, and economic statistics. Ag Data Commons was created to foster innovative data re-use, integration, and visualization to support bigger, better science and policy.

eAtlas
The eAtlas provides access to environmental research data and is focused on preserving and encouraging reuse of this data. The eAtlas is the primary data and knowledge repository for the National Environmental Science Programme Tropical Water Quality Hub and historically for the 38 NERP Tropical Ecosystems Hub projects, 6 Reef Rescue Marine Monitoring Program projects and the Marine and Tropical Science Research Facility. This research covers a wide range of topics including seagrass, coral reefs, turtles, dugongs, seabirds, rainforest revegetation, and wet tropics species distributions.

Polar Geospatial Center Data Archives
The Polar Geospatial Center (PGC) Data Archive makes research data regarding both poles available by working with researchers on mapping and remote sensing projects in the most remote locations on Earth. The archive of many open data products such as digital elevation models, historic and contemporary polar maps, and historic aerial photography. Open data is available at no cost. Licensed data, namely commercial satellite imagery, is available to PGC core users only.

European Archive of Historical EArthquake Data
The European Archive of Historical Earthquake Data (AHEAD) is a distributed archive aimed at preserving, inventorying and making available, to investigators and other users, data sources on the earthquake history of Europe, such as papers, reports, Macroseismic Data Points (MDPs), parametric catalogues. AHEAD was created and then maintained via the NERIES NA4 and SHARE Task 3.1 projects. AHEAD consists of independent regional archives, a general repository and a collaborative inventory.

PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform
The PREVIEW Global Risk Data Platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. Users can visualise, download or extract data on past hazardous events, human & economical hazard exposure and risk from natural hazards. Users may perform zooms, pan to a particular area, and add different layers of general data. Different backgrounds can be chosen to highlight different components reflecting vulnerability, such as population distribution, GDP per capita, elevation, and land cover. Layers of natural hazards can be added for both events and yearly average for tropical cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, biomass fires, floods, landslides and tsunamis.
