DataStream Publishes Open Data Standard to Support Water Science
The publication of an open data standard is enabling valuable freshwater data to be organized, accessed, and shared in a harmonized way. This data standard underpins DataStream, a growing online platform for sharing water data collected by Canada’s diverse water monitoring and research community.
New Feature: DOIs on DataStream
Ensuring that water quality data on DataStream is easy to find, access, use and reuse is at the centre of our mission. For this reason, we have dedicated a lot of time exploring ways to integrate permanent identifiers into your datasets.
