A Geo-referencing system Datasets will be stored with geographic coordinates for the geographic coverage of the dataset. A map interface will enable users to locate datasets. Standardised identification Work will be initiated to establish a standard for naming of social science data resources. Downloading data Data can be downloaded in any of a number of standard file formats Knowledge base User supplied comments, links to online publications etc. Multilingual Access to Data Infrastructures of the European Research Area
