So, you’ve been doing your spatial thing and it’s been going well. Suddenly you get a feeling. You just did Something Important. That layer you just created matters. It has helped you make a decision: shown you something about your study site, confirmed something you were looking for (or trying to show wasn’t there).
What do you do?
I hope you aren’t thinking “leave it called output_11a.random” and excitedly move to the next stage…? Well, of course you’re not 🙂
You’re going to archive a copy of that important piece of your future thesis support and create a metadata record, aren’t you… Aren’t you?
If your not sure what spatial data you should be putting into your project outputs folder and preparing as support for your academic publications, then this SALtech session is for you!
We are going to be talking about:
how to identify what to include in your thesis archive
what needs metadata and what doesn’t – you need enough metadata but you are also writing a thesis, so there is going to be a lot of detail in there too 😉
how to archive your spatial data and where you can store it to keep it safe
(hint: SAL can help you with this)
No RSVPing this week – See you in the Map Library at 12pm tomorrow
(Tues 13th Sept).
