NEEScentral Users Guide 1.7

By Rajesh Thyagarajan

Published on


NEEScentral is a web-based portal that provides members of the NEES community access to the NEES data repository. By providing a centralized location for the long-term storage of data and associated details about the facilities and equipment involved in producing those data, NEEScentral enables those in the earthquake engineering community to inform new research, validate new simulation models, and inform industry practice.

Data in the repository is user-managed on a project-by-project basis. Structured projects make extensive use of metadata fields that store the information needed to reproduce an experiment. Once these metadata fields are populated, an experiment report may be generated to inform collaborators of experiment progress. You may also upload single files or entire directories of data to the repository, then share the data with selected collaborators at your discretion. Visible projects can be searched to help you find and connect with potential collaborators.
