LTER Information Managers recently attended the Information Management (IM) meeting in Estes Park, CO as part of the 2006 LTER All Scientists Meeting, where we enjoyed a week of interaction with many information managers from the LTER network, as well as members of the International LTER IM community. We also benefited from the close contact with LTER scientists, many of whom are supported by the work of IMs.

With continuous advancements in Information Technology, public access to information and data has been made much easier than the past. These advancements have often resulted in swift societal change to make optimum use of the new technologies. This cascade of advance and response needs to be based on a solid ethical foundation to ensure sustainability and societal stability.

Improving Data Queries through use of a Controlled Vocabulary

Issue: 
Spring 2006

- John Porter (Virginia Coast Reserve LTER)

Currently the keywords used to characterize datasets at most LTER sites are uncontrolled, meaning that they are selected entirely by the data creator. One of the challenges facing LTER and external researchers in discovering data from LTER sites is inconsistent application of keywords. A researcher interested in carbon dioxide measurements must search on both "Carbon Dioxide and "CO2." Moreover, a search on "Gases" would not find either of them.
