D 4.2. Data Management Plan – Update 1

This document sets out the Data Management Plan (DMP) for the EarthServer-2 project. The DMP includes a data register that will be maintained as a “live” document and updated as new data become available to the project. Periodic iterations of the DMP will be produced, providing a snapshot of the latest data register.

Data management is a major focus of the EarthServer-2 project, which addresses problems such as searching, filtering and analyzing huge (100TB+) datasets that, due to their size, cannot be processed on the client side. The tools and standards developed during EarthServer-2 will improve the accessibility and reuse of these datasets.
