• We developed the Arctic Data Explorer - offering accessible, multi-faceted and efficient navigation of interdisciplinary Arctic data.
  • We offered services, through templates and other tools, to assist researchers in meeting NSF requirements.
  • We supported data in the ACADIS Gateway for all relevant Arctic physical, life and social science data for NSF’s Division of Polar Programs (PLR) Arctic Research Program (ARC) research community.
  • As curators, we ensured stored metadata were clean, accurate and available.
  • ACADIS data and services migrated in spring 2016 to the NSF Arctic Data Center.

  • The Arctic Data Explorer allows for a more efficient, fruitful search because it pulls data from multiple sources.
  • Take a look at the history and usability research outcomes of the ADE.
