The RRUFF Project is creating a complete set of high quality spectral data from well characterized minerals and is developing the technology to share this information with the world. The collected data provides a standard for mineralogists, geoscientists, gemologists and the general public for the identification of minerals both on earth and for planetary exploration.Electron microprobe analysis is used to determine the chemistry of each mineral.
Within the RESIF-EPOS observation research infrastructure and the Action Spécifique RESIF-GNSS action, the Reseau National GNSS permanent (RENAG) is the network of GNSS observation stations of French universities and research organizations. It is currently composed of 85 GNSS stations (Global Navigation Satellite System such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo). The scientific objectives of RESIF-RENAG range from the quantification of the slow deformation in France to the sounding of the atmosphere (troposphere and ionosphere), through the measurement of sea-level variations and the characterization of transient movements related to overloads. Data production is carried out in a distributed way by the laboratories and organizations that manage the stations. 12 teams are specifically in charge of station maintenance and of accurately filling in the metadata files. A single data center, RENAG-DC, hosted at the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur (OCA) within the Geoazur laboratory, is in charge of data management, from their collection to their distribution in the standard RINEX format (

The Magnetics Information Consortium (MagIC) improves research capacity in the Earth and Ocean sciences by maintaining an open community digital data archive for rock magnetic, geomagnetic, archeomagnetic (archaeomagnetic) and paleomagnetic (palaeomagnetic) data. Different parts of the website allow users access to archive, search, visualize, and download these data. MagIC supports the international rock magnetism, geomagnetism, archeomagnetism (archaeomagnetism), and paleomagnetism (palaeomagnetism) research and endeavors to bring data out of private archives, making them accessible to all and (re-)useable for new, creative, collaborative scientific and educational activities. The data in MagIC is used for many types of studies including tectonic plate reconstructions, geomagnetic field models, paleomagnetic field reversal studies, magnetohydrodynamical studies of the Earth's core, magnetostratigraphy, and archeology. MagIC is a domain-specific data repository and directed by PIs who are both producers and consumers of rock, geo, and paleomagnetic data. Funded by NSF since 2003, MagIC forms a major part of which integrates four independent cyber-initiatives rooted in various parts of the Earth, Ocean and Life sciences and education.

We aim to provide a “one-stop shop” for data. To this end, we provide information on Strait of Georgia data that can be found within this Data Centre, as well as in other existing databases and locations. Clicking on the different categories in our Marine Data BC open data portal will allow you information on 1) all the data that is within this SoG Data Centre, 2) links to custodians that can provide other data sets that cannot be directly downloaded from our Data Centre, as well as 3) links to other existing data search engines where data can be immediately downloaded.
The Permafrost Information Network (PIN) is being developed to improve knowledge of permafrost conditions and contribute pertinent information to government, northern, and research stakeholders. PIN connects borehole stratigraphic, geotechnical, ground thermal, and surficial geology data from a variety of data sources. Currently, PIN includes geotechnical and ground thermal data from published Geological Survey of Canada databases. However, the goal is to collaborate with Territorial data holders to connect their collections through the PIN application.
