Project and Data Request Overview

Contents [hide]

Overview of the user’s procedure for requesting modeling platform I/O and other supporting data files from the Intermountain West Data Warehouse.

1.       Start a new Project. To initiate a new project on the DW, users must be registered with the DW and have Project Manager privileges. Generally these roles are assigned to Users who are affiliated with agencies that sponsor projects using DW data. Typical sponsoring agencies include, but are not limited to, the EPA, BLM, NPS, or other agencies or organizations with individuals who have been pre-approved by the 3-State Cooperators to obtain data from the DW. This is the preferred approach for projects that will use DW files for NEPA modeling studies. When a project is created, Team members can be assigned to that project and all members of the project team will be able to submit data requests.

2.       Submit a Direct Data Request. This avenue allows general users, who may not have pre-approval by the 3-State cooperators, to initiate data requests. This is the recommend pathway for individuals who are affiliated with universities, agencies outside the purview of the 3-State Cooperators, or other interested parties, to request data from the DW. Such requests will be sent to the IMDW Team for approval. Data Request link:

When Users initiate a data request, they are directed to the data request interface (data request link, above). A step-by-step procedure for filling out the request form can be found by following the Help link at the top of the Data Request page.

Please note steps 2&3 in the overview of the Data Request Procedure; that is, provide basic parameters, and provide details regarding intended use.

Here we provide examples of external documentation uploaded by DW users in fulfillment of the DW request to describe the intended use of data in their request.
