Data and Information Management
One of the goals of ILTER is to improve comparability of long-term ecological data from sites around the world, and facilitate exchange and preservation of these data. ILTER also aims to deliver scientific information to scientists, policymakers, and the public. ILTER's activities to improve access to long-term ecological and socio-ecological datasets include establishing regional metadata caches, enabling online cross-site searches of a wide range of data.
