FCE IMS LTER Network and Community Activities

Kristin Vanderbilt works quarter-time for the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI), which operates the data repository to which FCE contributes data. In this role, she co-organizes and leads outreach activities such as trainings that support LTER Information Managers. Kristin has attended every LTER Information Managers (IM) Committee meeting since 2000. In 2017, she chaired the subcommittee that updated the 2009 "LTER IMS Review Criteria" document to become the "LTER IMS Guidelines" document.

The Excel2EML metadata converter tool and template has been made available to the LTER network and broader ecological community via the LTER CVS repository and a download link on the FCE web site (http://fcelter.fiu.edu/data/tools/).

Data contributions have been made regularly to the following LTER network databases: 1) PASTA LTER NIS 2) ClimDB, 3) SiteDB, 4) All Site Bibliography, 5) Personnel and 6) Metacat XML database.
