How We Provide Rescued Data to
the World Community
IEDRO has one requirement — rescued data will be provided to the world community through a world data center for free or for a nominal reproduction charge.
IEDRO sends a copy of the scanned images received from our data rescue projects to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, North Carolina. NCDC keys the alphanumeric data, scans the photographs, and stores the digital files in its database. Anyone in the world can access the information stored at NCDC for educational and operational purposes.
