Data Conservancy is honored to announce that NSIDC’s latest integration to its Glacier Photo Collection is now available and is being sustained on the Data Conservancy system. The live pilot has been an exercise in operationalizing the Data Conservancy. It demonstrates the search and access APIs and helped to examine the issues surrounding metadata curation.
