Forms Data Submission GCE data submission form for tabular and non-tabular data files
Description - This Microsoft Excel spreadsheet template is provided for submitting metadata (documentation) for both tabular and non-tabular data sets to the GCE Information Management Office for archiving in the GCE Data Catalog and LTER Data Portal. More information about GCE data submission is available at http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/im/data_submission.htm.

For tabular data (e.g. spreadsheets, logger files), the data values and column information can be included in the "Tabular Data" worksheet along with the documentation metadata, or provided separately if prior arrangements are made with IM staff for parsing data from specialized formats (e.g. raw data logger files, real-time data telemetry or lab-specific storage formats).

For non-tabular data (e.g. GIS files, raster imagery, genomics data), the data file(s) can be described in the template and then uploaded separately, or download links can be provided in the "Non-Tabular Data" worksheet.

Completed templates and data files (if provided separately) should be uploaded to the GCE IM office using the "Submit Data" form on the Private GCE Web Site (https://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/private/app/upload_data.asp).

Note that a GCE Data Submission Training presentation and Zip archive of sample submissions are also available for downloading (see http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/app/resource_details.asp?id=535).
