Data Discovery Using FRDR and Geodisy

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.

Office hours to support this workshop will be held on Friday, 09 October. Please register in advance.

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!

These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
