The LinkedEarth wiki is an EarthCube-funded platform that:
- enables the curation of publicly-accessible database by paleoclimate experts, and
- fosters the development of standards, so paleoclimate data are easier to analyze, share, and re-use.
Getting started with LinkedEarth
Several tutorials are also available on our YouTube channel!
New: Each working group has polls waiting for community input. You must be logged in to vote.
In the Linked Earth context, a WG is a self-organized coalition of knowledgeable experts who elaborate and discuss the components of a data standard for their topic(s) of interest. WGs may be created by any member of the LinkedEarth community. Currently, the LinkedEarth community is organized around 14 working groups.
To join a WG, do so on your LinkedEarth wiki profile page.
We recommend using the LiPD format to get your data on the wiki. The Python LiPD Utilities allow to create a LiPD from an Excel template, wich can be downloaded here. For instructions on filling out this template, see the page "Creating a LiPD file".
Working with LiPD Datasets
The LiPD Utilities (available in R, Python, and Matlab) allow to read/write LiPD files, extract and collapse timeseries objects, and filter datasets according to your search criteria. Data analysis packages are currently available in R (GeoChronR) and Python (Pyleoclim). A large body of Matlab code exists already to analyze the PAGES2k dataset. If you are unfamiliar with using LiPD files, a good place to start is Using LiPD files.
Current State of the Database
The LinkedEarth Wiki currently contains 705 datasets, mostly from the PAGES2k compilation. We are in the process of adding more Holocene records, as well as >100 deep-sea cores from the LR04 benthic stack compilation. Please contact us if you want to lead a data drive to flesh it out some more.
