NEON ( provides open data from 81 locations across the United States. NEON data cover a wide range of subject areas of interest to AAG members, including spatially explicit micrometeorology, biogeochemistry, organismal observations, and both lidar and hyperspectral remote sensing. Data collection is projected to occur for the next 30 years. This workshop will provide an introduction to the basics of data availability, and hands-on work to explore and accessing data via the NEON data portal, accessing data via the neonUtilities R package, understanding the content and quality of the data downloaded, and performing common data merges and transformations.
