Tufts Data Rescue

From 1/20-1/23 Tufts University and the Open Geoportal Community conducted a sizeable U.S. federal data harvest. We surveyed Tufts faculty to identify those geospatial data most critical their teaching and research. We then conducted a curated harvest to back up potentially at-risk federal, environmental and social justice geospatial data and associated tabular data.  Currently we are at around 20 TB of data backed up on Tufts Research Data Storage Network.  This is an ongoing effort as we are continuing to harvest data daily. Please contact Patrick.florance@tufts.edu if you would like to participate or learn more.
