ABSTRACT
Large scientific repositories risk losing value as their holdings expand, because scientists must work harder to locate particular datasets of interest. In an effort to resolve this issue, the Data Near Here application applies information retrieval techniques to dataset search.
INDEX TERMS
Scientific computing, Knowledge discovery, Logic gates, Portals, Ocean temperature, Temperature distribution, Web pages, scientific computing, scientific archives, ranked search, information retrieval, data discovery
