LTER Information Management

The Long-Term Ecological Research Network was established in 1980 by the National Science Foundation. It includes research sites inside and outside the US representing a wide variety of ecosystems and research emphases. At each site an Information Manager or Information Management Team is concerned with technologies that improve collaborations between researchers and technological solutions to enabling data collection, discovery, access, integration and analysis across disciplinary and scale boundaries.
