USGS - science for a changing world

Welcome to the NDC Dashboard

The National Digital Catalog Dashboard enables state geological agencies that have successfully competed for federal funding administered by the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP) to upload metadata describing geoscientific collections and samples.

    Using the Dashboard, users may:
  • Log in or request access
  • Create a new collection or edit an existing collection
  • Upload CSV or XML file to create or update metadata records describing physical samples in the National Digital Catalog
  • Receive a notification e-mail of file processing completion
