Geodisy Is Now Live on FRDR!
Geodisy is now live on FRDR! Geodisy is an open-source spatial discovery platform for Canadian open research data, developed by a team at the University of British Columbia in collaboration with CANARIE, UBC Advanced Research Computing, GeoBlacklight, Dataverse, ScholarsPortal, and Portage. Users can search for data based on location and preview datasets as overlays on a digital map. Access to comprehensive and standardized metadata is also provided. Data is currently sourced from Scholars Portal Dataverses, which houses open research data from forty Canadian institutions (500 Dataverses, 2,500 datasets). The Geodisy platform benefits all research disciplines that use geospatial location. We will be offering a free webinar with members of the Geodisy team on May 5 – registration is open to all.
