Data Rescue Indianapolis


#DataRefugeIndy invites you to participate in an important citizen science project to archive and code federal climate and environmental data.

#DataRefugeIndy (part of the #DataRefuge consortium based at the University of Pennsylvania) recognizes that evidence for ongoing human-induced climate and environmental change is overwhelmingly supported by the scientific community and backed by decades of data-driven analysis. Much of this analysis has relied on the important climate and environmental data sets stored on federal servers. Continued reliable access to these data sets is vital to ongoing climate and environmental research. However, there is no guarantee that this federal data will remain accessible to researchers and the public into the future.

We would like your help in capturing, coding, and uploading federal data sets to servers that can guarantee continued access to researchers and the public into the future.
