These four tables document the data used to draw the findings in the manuscript “Measuring sustainability of seed-funded Earth science informatics projects,” by Hsu et al. Table 1, “ListProjects-data” lists the projects funded by the Community for Data Integration from 2010-2016. Table 2, “Outputs-data” lists the deliverables that were proposed and delivered to the Community for Data Integration from 2010-2016, and notes if they were still accessible or sustained at the time of this study (December 2018). Table 3, “Influences-and-Sustainabiltiy-data” lists the projects and the sustainability influences examined in this study, as well as if the project achieved individual-level or organizational-level sustainability....

The tables in this data release provide measures of quality for each of 304,643 records in the Mineral Resources Data System (MRDS) database, located at https://mrdata.usgs.gov/mrds/ describing mineral resources worldwide but focusing on those located in the United States. One table provides the measures of quality, the other provides the overall record scores that may be used to sort records by overall quality. MRDS is distributed from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in several different formats for the convenience of a variety of different users. For example a flattened version of the database is available in which the one-to-many relationships in MRDS are suppressed by combining them into a single field, resulting...

The ViTexOCR script presents a new method for extracting navigation data from videos with text overlays using optical character recognition (OCR) software. Over the past few decades, it was common for videos recorded during surveys to be overlaid with real-time geographic positioning satellite chyrons including latitude, longitude, date and time, as well as other ancillary data (such as speed, heading, or user input identifying fields). Embedding these data into videos provides them with utility and accuracy, but using the location data for other purposes, such as analysis in a geographic information system, is not possible when only available on the video display. Extracting the text data from imagery using software...
Blossom is an interactive program for making statistical comparisons with distance-function based permutation tests and for testing parameters estimated in linear models with permutation procedures. Blossom provides a user friendly statistical software package specifically for biological and ecological applications. Statistical procedures used in Blossom are unique from those offered in commercially available software and include the multi-response permutation procedures and regression quantile estimates and permutation tests for linear models. The availability of these procedures allows scientists to better address natural resource issues important to managers. Blossom is written to run on 32-bit Intel computers...
Blossom is an R package with functions for making statistical comparisons with distance-function based permutation tests developed by P.W. Mielke, Jr. and colleagues at Colorado State University and for testing parameters estimated in linear models with permutation procedures developed by B. S. Cade and colleagues at the Fort Collins Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey. This implementation in R has allowed for numerous improvements not supported by the Cade and Richards Fortran implementation, including use of categorical predictor variables in most routines. Statistical procedures available include: A permutation testing version of ordinary least squares (OLS) regression that parallels the least absolute deviation...

This dataset includes example data used for demonstration of the moisturEC program. This includes inverted electrical resistivity data, model resolution from the inversion, point moisture information, and conductivity-saturation calibration information. The data are from a field site in Coventry, CT outfitted with five, Decagon 5TE moisture probes, arranged along a 28 m transect at different depths. The data represent a slice in time after irrigating the soil for 12 hours.

Over 40,000 road crossings in Maine are maintained by Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) managers, emergency managers, natural resource planners, and municipalities. Resource managers need a way to quickly and comprehensively assess, during the planning stages of potential transportation-related projects, how ecological, hydrologic, and structural characteristics of bridges and culverts and their watersheds could adversely affect project schedules and budgets. Factors that are critical to evaluate and incorporate into overall assessments of project risk include basin, land-use, and climatic characteristics; vulnerability to specific events, such as floods; and complicating factors in the watershed, such...
