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 have now published the data paper associated with this database (Soranno et al. 2017). 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

We have made the full LAGOS-NE database available with the publication of the LAGOS-NE data paper (Soranno et al. 2017). The links to the data are in the data paper itself, but, we also provide the links here too, see below. We strongly recommend that you use the LAGOS-NE R package to load and use the data (Stachelek and Oliver 2017). For information about how to cite these data, please go here.

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.
