Synthesis through Harmonized Data Track-01: Using harmonized LTER and NEON biodiversity data (ecocomDP)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) and the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) provide open ecological data from across the United States. NEON provides data from automated instruments, observational sampling, and airborne remote sensing across 81 sites. EDI hosts data from the LTER network and a diverse set of other sources. This workshop will focus on tools to work with biodiversity data holdings from NEON and EDI that can be accessed in a standardized format using the ecocomDP package for R.

The workshop will include an overview of the data standard and anticipated use cases, an introduction to data discovery and visualization tools available in the R package, and an overview of NEON and EDI organismal data that can be accessed using the R library. We will provide code-along instruction where participants will learn how to access and work with available datasets, and end with a discussion where participants can provide feedback on priorities for future enhancements.
