Data

A Solid Foundation for Research

Rapid technological change is revolutionizing the ways that hazards and disaster researchers can coordinate and collaborate to collect and share data. CONVERGE is advancing these efforts through the development of novel platforms and training opportunities to encourage social science and interdisciplinary researchers to manage, curate, and share their hazards and disaster data.

Data Publication

CONVERGE partnered with the NHERI RAPID facility and the DesignSafe research and development team to develop a novel social science and interdisciplinary data model for natural hazards research.

Data Ambassadors

CONVERGE Data Ambassadors have completed a Publish Your Data! training session and have published their own data or instruments on DesignSafe. They also share their newly attained knowledge with colleagues hazards and disaster field. CONVERGE Data Ambassadors are helping to usher in a culture shift toward data publication and data and instrument sharing across disciplines.

Data Management

One of the objectives of CONVERGE is to support researchers with data management and publication processes. This page offers guidance on writing a data management plan based on current National Science Foundation (NSF) requirements. This page is also intended for researchers who plan to publish their data, data collection protocols, or instruments via the DesignSafe Cyberinfrastructure.
