The ability to replicate and reproduce research is a cornerstone of the scientific method. While most research funding agencies encourage or require data sharing, open access, and the replication of research results by other researchers, these goals are often thwarted by legal or technical restrictions when such research involves confidential geospatial data. This session proposes an integrated and robust approach to the persistent challenges of sharing and accessing research data needed to advance science, while also protecting and building on the rapidly increasing body of research involving confidential geospatial data.
