We are inundated with data and metadata. This is inherent in the environmental sciences as we often produce and use very large and multi-dimensional datasets. Consider the complexities of field measurement campaigns, desktop data processing and analysis, numerical modeling inputs and outputs, and technical reporting. Data and metadata are integral to all of these. Data management is the process of organizing and maintaining data and metadata from their origin and throughout their lifecycle. An effective data management system should enable and improve the archiving, discovery and dissemination of data within an organization.At ASL Environmental Sciences we have implemented data management processes for the projects that we execute every day. We have invested in this internally as we understand the importance of data management to the success of our projects and organization. We now offer this service to other organizations who have the same challenges.
