{ Linked Paleo Data }

Linked Paleo Data (LiPD) is a community data framework being designed to simplify the sharing, reuse and analysis of paleoclimate data. By combining a flexible, hierarchical data container with linked data concepts, LiPD lets paleoscientists spend less time wrangling data, and more time doing science.

We’re currently working hard to develop more and better utilities for interacting with LiPD, both for the creation and validation of LiPD datasets, and for tools to interact with LiPD data in Python, R, and Matlab. We’re always looking for more people interested in contributing to the effort.

A technical description of the LiPD framework is available here.
