Database and derived data products

LAGOS-NE

We have built LAGOS-NE, the ‘LAke multi-scaled GeOSpatial and temporal database’ for studying water quality at broad spatial extents. We have already published the methods for building this database (Soranno et al. 2015), and we are in the process of making the database publicly-accessible in a data repository along with the publication of a ‘data paper’ that describes the database (Soranno et al. in review, Summer 2017). We expect these products to be made available to the researcher community in Fall of 2017. Please contact us if you have any questions about access to these products. In addition, we have made subsets of the LAGOS-NE database available through the publication of many of our research papers as described below.

The most recent version of LAGOS-NE

Coming soon.  We will be making the full LAGOS-NE database available at the publication of the LAGOS-NE data paper. We expect this to happen sometime in Fall 2017. If you would like access to any of the data prior to this publication, please contact soranno@msu.edu.

LAGOS-US

Work has just begun on building this database. Based on our experience with LAGOS-NE, we have the tools to make the data available and fully documented with metadata, documentation, and code at a faster pace than we were able to for LAGOS-NE. Further, our plan is to make components of the database publicly available as they are developed rather than waiting for all components to be completed. Please come back to this website periodically to see progress or contact us if you have any questions at soranno@msu.edu.
