In order for the GTN-P Database to read and work with your data the data sets must be cleansed (which means detecting and removing or correcting data which is incomplete or incorrectly formatted). The format rules for a cleansed data scheme are the following:
Here we provide templates for data cleansing:
Most of the data collections which are present in the GTN-P Database have been cleansed by Arctic Portal. However, due to the large amount of permafrost data collections to be uploaded to the GTN-P Database we will unfortunately not be capable of cleansing all of them and hence strongly recommend that all data files are cleansed before submitting by using the templates.
Another idea is two different entries for data collections where the user can choose to upload already cleansed data or uncleansed data which are turned by an algorithm into cleansed data. However, such an algorithm has not been implemented yet.
