Data Discovery Using FRDR and Geodisy

October 8, 2020 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Research Data Management Fall Series

The Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) is Canadian national data repository aimed to address a longstanding gap in Canada’s research infrastructure by providing a single platform from which research data can be ingested, curated, preserved, discovered, cited and shared.

Geodisy provides map search functionality to supplement the FRDR discovery service, allowing researchers to find data based on location. This session will introduce data searching using the main FRDR search as well as the Geodisy map function, and will discuss evaluating data for reuse.

Nick Rochlin is the research data management specialist in UBC’s Advanced Research Computing team. He is active in the Portage Network of RDM professionals, co-chairing the Training Expert Group and the Institutional Strategies Working Group, and an active member of the FRDR User Experience & Training Group.

This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three-week period this fall. The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!
