Geochron Data Submission Levels and User Control on Data Access and Modification

Jul 2013. Building on our experience from the IEDA and EarthChem, the Geochron database has three levels of data storage and access: private, public, and published. The submitter controls private data. These data can only be seen by the submitter or a submitter-defined group of users. Public data are discoverable by anyone visiting the site, but can be changed by the submitter at any time.
