Getting Started with DataPlanet

Citing a datasheet using tools in DataPlanet

When citing Data Planet, you will often be citing the data set which is available on a datasheet.

DataSheet is a term used by DataPlanet to describe the formatted infographics that can be created using the time series and visualization tools available in the DataPlanet repository, which are served up with content describing the data displayed.

From within DataPlanet, you may create a citation from the Cite dropdown menu.  This is also how you access the connection to Endnote and Zotero.

******* Be sure to create your citation AFTER you have created the DOI for your data subset.

You can also embed your datasheet on another website.  In this case, you are able to select a static image or an image that is updated when DataPlanet gets new data.
