The GCE Data Toolbox is a comprehensive library of functions for metadata-based analysis, visualization, transformation and management of ecological data sets. The toolbox is based on the GCE Data Structure specification, a standard for storing tabular data along with all information required to interpret the data and generate formatted metadata (documentation). The various metadata fields in the structure are queried by toolbox functions for all operations, allowing functions to process and format values appropriately based on the type of information they represent. This 'semantic processing' approach supports highly automated and intelligent data analysis and ensures data set validity throughout all processing steps.
