EOL Metadata Database and Cyberinfrastructure (EMDAC)

 

The EOL Metadata Database and Cyberinfrastructure (EMDAC) is a comprehensive metadata database and integrated cyberinfrastructure that will be the hub of all EOL data services. Through EMDAC, CDS will create bridges to multi-agency data portals, creating compatible metadata and data access infrastructure which connects EOL to the common services of today while allowing us to meet future needs through a modular and extensible architecture.

The EMDAC services are shown in the figure below. Click on the service in the figure to get a description of that service.
