Virtual Data Help Desk at EGU
The Virtual Data Help Desk, which is a program of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), and EarthCube, provides researchers with opportunities to engage with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software open and FAIR.
The Virtual Data Help Desk will be staffed with experts from NEON and the Earth science informatics community to answer data-related questions and to demo useful resources. NEON will be participating in the Virtual Data Help Desk in three ways:
- Answering Data Questions: You can share your questions any time from May 4th-May 8th via Twitter using the hashtag #DataHelpDesk. Data experts at NEON will monitor the twitter and answer questions surrounding topics like finding, sharing, analyzing, publishing, and citing data.
- Data Demos & Tutorials: NEON will provide tutorials and demos about accessing and using NEON data. Links to the these demos and tutorials are TBD.
- Virtual Office Hour: NEON will host a virtual office hour on accessing and using NEON data on Webex on May 7th from 8AM to 9AM MST(16:00 - 17:00 CEST).
