 CUGIR Data Package

A CUGIR data package includes:

  • Compressed copies of the selected data file(s).
  • A folder containing metadata for the selected data file(s). The metadata is in XML format and stylesheets are provided to display it in a web browser.
  • A README file with information about the data package, including the names of downloaded files and links to check to see if newer data are available from CUGIR. The name of the README file indicates the data and time of the download. For example, CUGIR_2005-12-12T15-17-58 means that the file was packaged on 12/12/2005, at 3:17pm.
