Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network Data Set Library (Hosted By Environment Canada)
Entry ID: Canada_EC_EMAN


Summary
Abstract: The Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN) Data Set Library hosted
by Environment Canada is a metadata resource of data sets and research
activities that are associated with the mosaic of partners and research sites
that make up EMAN. The EMAN was set up to look at what is changing across
Canada's environment. Metadata within the Data Set Library pertains to multiple
ecological variables meant to track ecosystem changes. Metadata captured in
the Data Set Library meets the US Federal Geographic Committee's Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) and the extended Biological
Profile to the CSDGM as developed by the US National Biological Information
Infrastructure.The Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN) was
first formed in 1994 and its goal is to examine what is changing in the
environment. EMAN is coordinated by Environment Canada. The data and research
activities described in the Data Set Library are meant to track ecosystem
changes.
