Information and Data Infrastructure (INF) Project

The Information and Data Infrastructure (INF) Project manages research data generated in the TRR 170 subprojects. This data is diverse reflecting the range of methods used, including laboratory and other instrumental data on planetary samples, remote sensing data, geological maps, and model simulations.

Accordingly, the strong interdisciplinary alignment of the TRR 170 research network comprises heterogeneous data and different data formats. Most datasets stored in the r3data certified TRR170-DB repository are used by TRR 170 authors of articles appearing in international journals. These replication datasets are made freely available, and no special permission is required to use them.
