CV RDC Getting Started Introduction
Welcome to the Central Valley Regional Data Center (CV RDC) webpage. This "Getting Started" section of our webpage introduces data managers to the tools and documentation to be able to submit data to the CV RDC and ultimately into the California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN).
Getting your data into CEDEN is a two phase process. The first phase involves working with a Regional Data Center like the CV RDC to make sure your data are in the proper format for CEDEN. The second phase involves giving the CV RDC permission to export your data to CEDEN. The CV RDC maintains a large database which is a subset of the data in CEDEN. This database is unavailable to the public and contains all data submitted to the CV RDC by various data providers. Your data will be placed in the CV RDC database for review and is exported once you make all the necessary edits to become CEDEN comparable. The CV RDC will work with you to ensure that the format of your data and naming conventions follow the rules required to export your data to CEDEN.
The following six steps are used as guidance for submitting data to the CV RDC and ultimately to CEDEN:
- Step 1: Review Required Data Elements
- Step 2: Determine Comparability of Data with CV RDC
- Step 3: Enter Data into Appropriate Templates
- Step 4: Verify Data are Correct and Comparable
- Step 5: Submit Data to the CV RDC
- Step 6: Confirm Data are Ready to be Exported to CEDEN
