Dear colleagues,

The Registry of Research Data Repositories – re3data 
(https://www.re3data.org/) stores location information that refers to 
the legal address of the institutions responsible for a repository. This 
approach to modeling location information was chosen because 
repositories are virtual services, meaning that the data might not be 
stored on-site.

In our new blogpost, we shed a light on the specific characteristics of 
location information in re3data and visualize it on a map. We analyze 
which countries collaborate internationally to run research data 
repositories and describe what you should be aware of when reusing the 
location information in the re3data metadata.

Best wishes from the re3data COREF project
