Submission forms

Published on

Each of the multiyear projects in the National Environmental Science Program Tropical Water Quality (NESP TWQ) hub is required to make a number of submissions to the eAtlas. These submissions are to ensure that the data generated by the hub are captured and well documented, enabling this data to be used by environmental managers and reused in future research. The schedule of submissions to the eAtlas is to help projects to meet the NESP data management guidelines.

How do I submit data to the eAtlas? In what file format(s) should I submit my data? How do I cite the data in my manuscript? How may data from eAtlas be reused? and other questions about data management in the eAtlas

The eAtlas Image Metadata Editor application is a Java program that allows information about the photos such as title, description, attribution, location, etc. to be recorded and saved in the images. When these images are then uploaded to the eAtlas this metadata is then maintained and displayed on the site. A web page is created for each image using the metadata added to the photo by the Image Metadata Editor. This application is intended to be used by eAtlas content administrators and those wishing to submit lots of photos to the eAtlas.

All datasets submitted to the eAtlas for publication need to complete an eAtlas dataset report form. This form is for collecting documentation on environmental research datasets and aims to ensure that these datasets can be reused in the future by others. The information collected in this report should address the key questions someone would have when trying to understand and use the associated dataset.

Over the life of the NERP TE program each project is required to complete a metadata describing the project itself and metadata records describing each of the dataset produced by the project.

This guide describes the creation and supplying of metadata describing just the project itself (referred to as the 'project metadata record') and not the datasets produced by this project; these will come later as each dataset is developed. These subsequent dataset records will be attached and linked to the project metadata record being described here.

The eAtlas encourages researchers to submit photos to the eAtlas to show research in action and to provide a library of photos that show environmental places, process and behaviours.

All photos submitted to the eAtlas need to be accompanied with metadata that describes what the photos shows (a caption), a title, who needs to be attributed, location of the photo and licensing. To supply this metadata you can:
