Intensively managed landscapes, regions of significant land use change, serve as sources of economic prosperity. However, the intensity of land use change is responsible for unintended deterioration of our land and water environments. The Intensively Managed Landscapes-Critical Zone Observatory (IML-CZO) aims to understand the present-day dynamics of this change in the context of long-term natural coevolution of the landscape, soil, and biota. The CZO will enable us to assess the short- and long-term resilience of the crucial ecological, hydrological, and climatic “services” provided by the Critical Zone, the “skin” of the earth that extends from the treetops to the bedrock. An observational network of three sites in Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota that capture the geological diversity of the low-relief, glaciated, and tile-drained landscape will allow for novel scientific and technological advances in understanding the Critical Zone. The IML-CZO will also provide leadership in developing the next generation of scientists and practitioners and in advancing management strategies aimed at reducing the vulnerability of the system to present and emerging trends in human activities.
An Interactive Web Application that provides a way to view processed Data for various Sites throughout the IML-CZO region.
A Web Based Data Management System that allows users to upload and download both raw and processed data related to IML-CZO.
The Geodashboard displays a selection of processed data from Clowder. The data is collected at various Sites throughout the IML-CZO region. Using this web application, it is possible to view data by category or source. The application also allows for the download of data as either a CSV or JSON file.
This Page is useful for selecting one Site. View and filter data by Category or Source, with various layers presented. After selecting a Site, Detailed Information is viewable from the Map Popup using the "View Data" button.
This Page displays data for one selected Site. For the selected Site, all Parameter data can be viewed in detail. Parameter data is displayed with Line Charts and Box-and-Whisker Plots. Data selected can be downloaded in either CSV or JSON format.
All Sites and all associated Parameters are available for examination. View comparison graphs based upon Site Parameters. Up to three Parameter graphs can be generated at a time.
This page allows data download of multiple Sites at a time. Select and filter data using River Basins, Data Sources, Parameters, and Dates. Data selected can be downloaded in either CSV or JSON format.
A version of the Geodashboard Explore Page optimized for a Mobile Experience. A Site can be selected by utilizing the provided list of Sites, or by selecting a Site on the Map and using the "View Data" button.
Clowder provides a way to view data collected at various Sites throughout the IML-CZO region. Data is organized in three levels: Spaces, Collections, and Datasets. Metadata is provided for datasets and files within Clowder. Both Raw and Processed Data is accessible upon logging in to Clowder. Space Permissions control Data Access.
Space Permissions control all Data Access. Data Files are presented in categorical Spaces.
With a valid Login and Space access, different datasets are available for download.
Data can be located via various search criteria.
User-provided Metadata enhances search capabilities and data explanations.
This section contains information that is specific to the organization of the IML-CZO Clowder instance.
For General Clowder information, Sign Up details, How-To details, and Images, please see the Tutorial for New Users in the Clowder Wiki.
Being a Clowder user does not automatically provide access to all Spaces. Access type is established at the Space level for each Space (Admin, Editor, Viewer).
The three basic organization levels within Clowder are Spaces, Collections, and Datasets. Tags, Metadata, and Sites are available to Explore. Search is enabled throughout the system.
Named after a general category. Spaces contain both Collections of Datasets and individual Datasets. Spaces do not contain files.
The Spaces within the IML-CZO Clowder for new data are Atmospheric, General Info, Ground Water, Lab Analyses, Soil, Spatial Info, and Surface Water
Names include Keywords to describe the Dataset or Child Collections contained therein. Spaces contain both Child Collections and individual Datasets.
Names include the Sensor Name and Keywords. Datasets contain Raw Data and Processed Data, and may contain Folders or Files.
Metadata is searchable. Definition sources are provided for each Metadata field. Multiple Metadata fields can be applied to Datasets and Files.
Tags are searchable. All Tags present in the application can be viewed. Multiple Tags can be applied to Datasets and Files.
