NEON Teaching Data Subsets

The NEON Data Skills portal provides free and open materials that support the scientific use of large spatio-temporal data. These materials include subsets of data that are available for use in our self-paced tutorials, workshops, teaching modules or for instructors to use to design their own instructional activities. The data subsets are hosted on figshare.

NEON Data Skills Teaching Data Subsets figshare repository

The repository of teaching data subsets is managed by the Education department at the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) in Boulder, Colorado.
