Cultivating the Scientific Data of the Morrow Plots: Visualization and Data Curation for a Long-Term Agricultural Experiment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The Morrow Plots at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are the longest-running continuous experimental agricultural fields in the Americas. This paper discusses efforts to identify, curate, and preserve data from the Morrow Plots and visualization tools to enhance understanding of the historical and scientific context for the data. This ongoing effort to draw attention to the greater scientific value of the Morrow Plots and to test data curation and visualization methods underscores the importance of interdisciplinary collaborations to curate longitudinal scientific data sets.
