I am working in meteorology/glaciology. We have quite a lot of observations (partly live!) and we would like to publish these data (live!) to the world.
So what we are looking for is a portal/software that allows publishing such "time series" data. This would include data such as temperature measurements, precipitation measurements, maybe glacier length changes, and so far and so on.
There is a chance to get some money of the national science fund - smaller projects to make data from past projects available to all of you. As I could not find anything suitable on the web:
- Is there something like this but I was too stupid to find it?
- If not: do you think that there is a need for it?
The idea - if not yet available - would be an open source software including a flexible backend, data upload interface (e.g., xml data xchange via scp/ftp/web upload), and a frontend offering "simple" data series plots, data exports, and that the uploader/maintainer of these data sets can write/upload notes, manuals, important information (e.g., instrument correction coefficients, when instruments have been maintained/replaced, ...).
Thank you very much for the input! We are currently in a "discussion" or "rough project planning" phase and all comments or hints will be more than helpful!
