NCEAS is an NSF funded research center whose mission is to advance the state of ecological knowledge through synthetic, cross-cutting studies using existing data. Soon after NCEAS formed it became obvious that there was a large need for informatics tools that support synthetic research.

MorphoWizard to create metadata

Morpho highlightsCreate metadata in EML formatManage data in EML packagesSave, publish, and share data

Search for data Multi-languageEnglish, Spanish, Chinese, French, Portuguese, JapaneseExport data and metadataCross-platform, and open source

MorphoMorpho TutorialGoalsInstall and understand MorphoUnderstand basics of metadata editingSave data to MetacatAccess control, and other more advanced featuresUnderstand relationship of Metacat to DataONE networkStep 1: Download and install

Step 2. Create profileProfile: a way to allow multiple users to use the same Morpho install without collidingEach profile is associated with one KNB/Metacat accountEach profile has a prefix used to create data set identifiersE.g., the prefix jones is used to create IDs of the form jones.1.1

Step 3. Set Metacat to use

Step 4: Manage dataLoginFind the data set uploaded earlierOpen it and edit it as instructedQuestions?Contact:Matt Jones Jim Regetz
