NACSE Community Portals

The sharing of data, information, and results is critical for enabling research advances research. Unfortunately, data is acquired in a variety of formats that are not easily compared or interchangeable. The sheer size of many research data sets adds to the challenge.

NACSE partners with scientific communities to design and develop web-based "portals." These websites provide discipline-specific tools that allow scientists to work - as a community - to develop shared data repositories and/or computational models. Since the portal's resources are well beyond the capability of individual researchers, it allows users to integrate and analyze information in new ways, facilitating new discoveries.

The portals NACSE develops are customized to meet the individual needs of each community. For examples, see the following.
