The goals of the collaboratory are:

  • Enhancing the international standardization and exchangebility of dendrochronological data and metadata;
  • Developing an international, sustainable and integrated repository of these data and metadata;
  • Unlocking these data and metadata for interdisciplinary and international follow-up research

European data collections with relevance to research within the Humanities in the Low Countries are upgraded and combined for the benefit of large-scale research in the field of wood usage, economy, climate and landscape history.

After completion of the project in 2011, the DCCD contains over 30,000 measurement series and their descriptive metadata, representing over 20,000 trees that grew between 6000 BC and present.

An important feature of the DCCD repository is that data contributors control the access to their data.
