DataOne

Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is the foundation of new innovative environmental science through a distributed framework and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that meets the needs of science and society for open, persistent, robust, and secure access to well-described and easily discovered Earth observational data. DataONE comprises a distributed network of data centers, science networks or organizations. These organizations can expose their data within the DataONE network through the implementation of the DataONE Member Node service interface. In addition to scientific data, Member Nodes can provide computing resources, or services such as data replication, to the DataONE community.

DataONE connects multiple data repositories in a federated network to provide integrated search and discovery and to provide replication services to the data repositories within the federation. Data are stored, and made visible, by the individual data repositories (see 'Contribute Data'). In DataONE language, these repositories are termed 'Member Nodes' (not all Member Nodes within DataONE are repositories but all repositories collaborating with DataONE are Member Nodes). At launch, DataONE comprised eight Member Nodes and more are being added (see 'Current Member Nodes' for a full list and link to operation documents).
