New Feature: Individual Baskets!

The new release for data.ccca provides a new powerful tool: Baskets

Baskets allow you to memorize and group datasets according to your individual preferences. This individual data collection can be made available in predefined groups, where you can share your data and working collaborative with your team. Coming soon, we will provide further special features for your basket like export to your ftp- home directory.

Baskets are accessible for logged in users via the status line (compare

Have fun and let us know your impressions.

Dynamic Data Citation and Subset tool developed by CCCA Data Centre were presented at EGU 2018 in Vienna and at the RDA Plenary in Berlin. The oral presentation at EGU was held within the Future Shock Session: Evolving Earth Science Data and Information Systems across the entire research lifecycle. In Berlin we presented our web based tool successfully as a first comprehensive implementation for Dynamic Data Citation. Citing datasets in an appropriate manner is recognised as good scientific practice. Dealing with the original source as part of the provenance within the data life cycle is an essential basis for research data to carry out verification and reproducibility. To establish a reproducibly of data processes and their re- use, researchers need the ability to identify the exact version of a data set used. The Dynamic Data Citation is used for creating subsets.

News about the new metadata schema- We are working intensively on the new metadata schema (DCAT) which will ensure a great deal of interoperability for our users. As a consequence every resource will constitute its own dataset thus increasing search engine exposure of your resources. All resources and datapackages will be transformed to the new schema by the CCCA Datacentre Team thus you are able to benefit from our improvements without any effort.
