LinkedEarth


linked earthLinkedEarth is an EarthCube-funded project aiming to better organize and share Earth science data, especially paleoclimate data.

LinkedEarth uses innovative semantic web technology to facilitate the work of paleo scientists.

The LinkedEarth data repository is centered around the Linked Paleo Data (LiPD) framework, empowering scientists to curate their own data and compilations and to build new tools centered around those (e.g. GeoChronR, Pyleoclim).

LinkedEarth was designed with the needs of PAGES-style data syntheses in mind, as exemplified by the PAGES 2k compilation.

In collaboration with the World Data Service for Paleoclimatology and PAGES, LinkedEarth is currently soliciting input on data standards for paleoclimatology.
