The digital future of rock data: tools and e-infrastructure for experimental and microstructural data

In this Townhall meeting we will update you on the latest developments within the StraboSpot//EPOS collaboration and demonstrate recently developed tools for experimental rock physics and microscopy.

StraboSpot is an EarthCube sponsored US initiative that is developing mobile and desktop applications to facilitate the collection and curation of field geology, microstructures, and experimental rock deformation data.

EPOS (European Plate Observing System) is a pan-European e-infrastructure project with the goal of improving and facilitating the access, use, and re-use of solid Earth science data. The Multi-scale laboratories are a subdivision within EPOS and responsible for laboratory-generated data, including microscopy and experimental rock deformation.

The StraboSpot//EPOS collaboration aims at harmonizing both initiatives, to ensure both systems are able to communicate with each other and can thus be linked. StraboSpot provides the tools to collect the data, while EPOS provides a platform to make the data available.
