The NCMNS Publishing Platform is a cloud-supported RESTful API and interactive data sharing web application with four primary goals:

  1. Provide publicly accessible data via a sophisticated API and front-end search interface
  2. Assure a scalable and reliable data source for third party consumption
  3. Publish research-grade high-quality data to maximize reuse
  4. Support the data needs of external projects via the API
  5. Allow our researchers to share their research data with the public

The application is divided into five components: search, maps, visualizations, api documentation, and a bibliography.

NOTE: This platform is still in development. Some pages/features may not operate as expected. The published data is reliable and high-quality (unless explicitly noted otherwise), but the structure, design, and documentation are works in progress.
