The Radiocarbon Palaeolithic Europe Database stores available radiometric data taken from literature and from other more restricted databases. Data is collected by continuous checking of newly published articles in hundreds of international and regional scientific journals and in collections or books dealing with a particular period or a specific Paleolithic site. User submissions are also accepted. Please note that this database is only available for download and local use via Microsoft Access or, in a more limited way, via Excel. As such, its accessibility is limited.
Data Center of Geography was created in 2011 in the framework of the interdisciplinary structure – world data systems – to ensure gathering, processing and conversion of data and to solve fundamental and applied problems in the sphere of geographical sciences.

The Geographic Information Support Team (GIST) Repository at the University of Georgia is a USAID-funded global archive of spatial data collected and distributed for the greater humanitarian community. If you want to search for data, you will need a valid email address to create an account.
The Census Bureau releases TIGER/Line shapefiles and metadata each year to the public. TIGER/Line shapefiles are spatial extracts from the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER database. They contain features such as roads, railroads, hydrographic features and legal and statistical boundaries.
OGSEarth provides geoscience data, collected by the Mines and Minerals division, which can be viewed using user-friendly geographic information programs such as Google Earth™. OSGEarth provides data on Mining claims, Geology, Index maps, Administrative boundaries and Abandoned mines.
The Alaska Climate Research Center archives and provides digital climate records, climate statistics, and monthly weather summaries on Alaska and the polar regions. The Alaska Climate Research Center is part of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Global environmental (climate, vegetation, soils, land degradation, hydrology, land cover) layers representing the land mask. Hosted by the OpenGeoHub foundation is a data portal to the world's environmental data representing land mask (land cover, vegetation, soil, climate, terrain data and similar). is the web-mapping component of the LandGIS (Geographic Information System for land data).
To help flattening the COVID-19 curve public health systems need better information on whether preventive measures are working and how the virus may spread. Facebook Data for Good offer maps on population movement that researchers and nonprofits are already using to understand the coronavirus crisis, using aggregated data to protect people’s privacy. is a web-accessible secure repository for forest plot inventories in South America, Africa and Asia. The database includes plot geographical information; location, taxonomic information and diameter measurements of trees inside each plot; and participants in plot establishment and re-measurement, including principal investigators, field assistants, students.
Climate Data Online (CDO) provides free access to NCDC's archive of global historical weather and climate data in addition to station history information. These data include quality controlled daily, monthly, seasonal, and yearly measurements of temperature, precipitation, wind, and degree days as well as radar data and 30-year Climate Normals
The main focus of is Historical Climatology. Years of meticulous work in this field in research groups around the world have resulted in large data collections on climatic parameters such as temperature, precipitation, storms, floods, etc. with different regional, temporal and thematic foci. enables researchers to collaboratively interpret the information derived from historical sources. It provides a database for original text quotations together with bibliographic references and the extracted places, dates and coded climate and environmental information.
The Map Collection at the Faculty of Science CU (formerly the State Map Collection) belongs to one of the most extensive university map collections in Central and East Europe. The map collection is digitized as part of the Czech Ministry of Culture's project NAKI.
CSDMS is a virtual home for a vibrant and growing community of about 1,000 international modeling experts and students who study the dynamic interactions of lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and atmosphere at Earth’s surface. Participating in cross-disciplinary groups, members develop integrated software modules that predict the movement of water, sediment, and nutrients across landscapes and into the ocean. We share an open library of models, software, and access to high-performance computing. We also share knowledge that helps create higher-resolution simulations, often involving higher complexity algorithms. Together, we support the discovery, use, and conservation of natural resources; mitigation of natural hazards; geotechnical support of commercial and infrastructure development; environmental stewardship; and terrestrial surveillance for global security.
Discovery is the digital repository of research, and related activities, undertaken at the University of Dundee. The content held in Discovery is varied and ranges from traditional research outputs such as peer-reviewed articles and conference papers, books, chapters and post-graduate research theses and data to records for artefacts, exhibitions, multimedia and software. Where possible Discovery provides full-text access to a version of the research. Discovery is the data catalogue for datasets resulting from research undertaken at the University of Dundee and in some instances the publisher of research data.
International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) research focuses on climate, environmental monitoring, agriculture, health, water, and economic sectors in Africa, Asia and Pacific, and Latin America and Caribbean. The IRI data library is a freely accessible data repository and analysis tool. IRI allows users to view, manipulate, and download climate-related data sets through a standard web browser.
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.
LinkedEarth is an EarthCube-funded project aiming to better organize and share Earth Science data, especially paleoclimate data. LinkedEarth facilitates the work of scientists by empowering them to curate their own data and to build new tools centered around those.
The NSDB is the set of computer readable files which contain soil, landscape, and climatic data for all of Canada. It serves as the national archive for land resources information that was collected by federal and provincial field surveys, or created by land data analysis projects. The NSDB includes GIS coverages at a variety of scales, and the characteristics of each named soil series. The principal types of NSDB data holdings (ordered by scale) are as follows: National Ecological Framework (EcoZones, EcoRegions, and EcoDistricts); Soil Map of Canada / Land Potential DataBase (LPDB); Agroecological Resource Areas (ARAs); Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC); Canada Land Inventory (CLI); Detailed Soil Surveys.
ShareGeo Open was a repository of geospatial data, previously hosted by EDINA. ShareGeo Open has been discontinued, so its datasets have been migrated to this Edinburgh DataShare Collection, for preservation, in accordance with the agreement signed by all ShareGeo depositors.
