Data Stewardship

To secure digital access to an increasing volume of data in reports published by the Arctic scientific
and academic community there is a need for data storage and standardized distribution services.

Single scientists and students as well as smaller organizations might not have the capacity to set up and maintain the required service infrastructure.

In this case, excisting Data Stewards with the internal capacity can host the data and offer storage in their platform for distribute data as Web services.

The following organizations is interested in hosting and distributing data:

  • Arctic Biodiversity Data Service (ABDS) provided by Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna
  • Global Biodiversity Information Facility
