Portal Teaching DB

Map of the United States showing the location of the National Ecological Observatory network sites with example crown delineations for a subset of sites showing trees delineated with square bounding boxes.

The Portal Project Teaching Database is a simplified version of the Portal Project Database designed for teaching. It provides a real world example of life-history, population, and ecological data, with sufficient complexity to teach many aspects of data analysis and management, but with many complexities removed to allow students to focus on the core ideas and skills being taught.

The database is currently available in csv, json, SQLite, and as an R data package.
