About Our Technology

The Ag Data Commons can best be described as an ecosystem of distributed repositories. Data are typically stored in the most appropriate disciplinary-specific database or repository. If no appropriate database or repository exists, the files can be stored in the Ag Data Commons. In either case, a catalog record with rich metadata should exist on the Ag Data Commons. This page provides detail on our standards and technology stack. It points to documentation and tools that developers can use to leverage both data and metadata.
