Integrating Colectica, Nesstar, and DDI-Lifecycle Pt 1

Presenter 1
Dan Smith

Both Colectica and Nesstar are software applications based on the DDI metadata standard. Many organizations use Nesstar for publishing data on the web, documented with DDI Codebook. Many organizations also use Colectica to document their studies and datasets using DDI Lifecycle. With the creation of the new Nesstar API, an integration opportunity exists to publish data described in DDI Lifecycle to the DDI Codebook based Nesstar server. This presentation will demonstrate the integration that is now implemented between Nesstar and Colectica. In this demo, a dataset and a study documented in Colectica using DDI Lifecycle metadata will be published to a Nesstar server using the Nesstar API. This integration allows users of both software packages greater opportunities for expanded metadata documentation and improved data publication and visualization.
