  • 1. School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences, and ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage, University of Wollongong, Wollongong, NSW 2522, Australia


This repository includes information pertaining to the relational database behind OCTOPUS v.2.

OCTOPUS v.2 is an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant web-enabled database that allows users to visualise, query, and download cosmogenic 10Be and 26Alluminescence, and radiocarbon ages and denudation rates associated with erosional landscapes, Quaternary depositional landforms and archaeological records, along with associated geospatial (vector and raster) data layers. The database follows the FAIR data principles and is based on open-source software deployed on Google Cloud Platform. Data stored in the database can be visualised, queried, and downloaded via a custom-built web interface and via desktop GIS applications that support OGC data access protocols. OCTOPUS can export data to various formats directly, including GML, JSON, Google Earth KLM and KMZ, and ESRI shapefile.
