Does the GRI AU want raw unanalyzed or analyzed data submitted to the public database and what is the expected minimum time delay for data submission?

1 Answer

There is a wide range in what is considered “raw” data by researchers. When practicable the actual observables acquired in the field or lab should be provided along with the values derived from the transformations of those observables. Metadata that describe how raw observables were transformed are required. For example, information on how water depth values were computed from pressure measurements, including calibration methods, would be important. It is also expected that data products, such as interpolated surfaces from point or line data or classifications of imagery, will be required if they are generated for further analysis. One should propose to submit the data as soon as possible after acquisition while allowing enough time for quality checks and metadata creation.
