Data management in Physical Geography

Data management in Physical Geography

More and more often specific requirements are made concerning the archiving and management of research data, not only by funders and (journal) publishers but also by the University of Amsterdam itself.

The UvA/AUAS Library and the ICT services provide facilities to support researchers in managing their data.

On the RDM website you can find all the information you need about planning, archiving and sharing research data. 


Research data can be stored in data archives. These repositories may be used in two ways: both for archiving your own research data and for consulting and reusing research data of other researchers. 

UvA/AUAS figshare

In UvA/AUAS figshare you can store your research data safely and still have access: your files are stored on ISO certified servers in Switzerland, and you can access them from any computer with an internet connection.

You can also safely share, archive and publish your research data. Your file is assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a unique permanent link you can use in articles and presentations.

Geo-data specific facilities

UvA Geoportal was developed to share geo-data efficiently within the UvA community.

Geoplaza helps you to make, publish and share maps: a service from the VU University Amsterdam.

Global Change Master Directory is one of the many general research data repositories for the earth sciences.

A listing of geo-data websites can be found at Geoplaza.


If you have a general question about research data management, please contact RDM Support.

For subject-specific questions, please contact the information specialist for Earth Sciences.
