Bioenergy Knowledge Discovery Framework
The Bioenergy Knowledge Discovery Framework (KDF) is an online collaboration toolkit and data resource providing access to the latest research on bioenergy. The site supports the creation of a robust, advanced, domestic bioenergy industry for the United States, offering resources for researchers, private industry, policy makers, and the public. In the KDF, users can:
- Search the Bioenergy Library to find datasets, publications, and models on a wide variety of bioenergy topics.
- Use the map interface to visualize, analyze, download, and export geospatial data.
- Browse the site’s collection of specialized Tools & Apps, which can also be launched on the map.
The Bioenergy Library contains hundreds of publications, datasets, and models specifically related to the production, distribution, delivery, and end use of bioenergy. Many of the Bioenergy Library publication records include abstracts and links to full-text content. Additionally, users can add data to certain datasets and visualize them on the KDF map. Registered users also have the ability to comment on entries and share links with others via email and social networking sites.
