Materials Data Resources


  • Materials Resource Registry allows for the registration of materials resources, bridging the gap between existing resources, software and repositories and end users.  The Materials Resource Registry functions as a federated service, making the registered information from multiple institutions available for research to the materials community.
  • NIST MaterialsData Repository is an effort to establish data exchange protocols and mechanisms to foster data sharing and reuse across a wide community of researchers, with the goal of enhancing the quality of materials data and models.  Dataresent on this system are varied and may originate from within NIST or from the worldwide materials community and may or may not be critically reviewed.
  • NIST Schema Repository and Registry is a service operated to improve discovery, access and reuse of materials-related schemas, data models, ontologies and more.
