The heart of the GCE Information Management program is the GCE Information System, or GCE-IS. The GCE-IS is a comprehensive computerized information management framework designed to acquire, organize, document and maintain all the various products of GCE LTER research. The system is designed to support data discovery and to provide a long-term research record that will last beyond the lifetime of the GCE LTER project.
The information on the following pages is designed to familiarize GCE participants and potential data users with the major components of the GCE-IS and to provide guidance on preparing data and data documentation for submission. These online guides will be updated regularly as new components are added and in response to user requests for additional information. Click on the links below to view individual guides as navigable hypertext documents or as a single document suitable for printing.
