Datzilla is a web-based system used to report and track errors against NOAA datasets and data products. Datzilla provides the ability NOAA employees and State Climatologists to submit error reports for Source Systems and Data-Products defined within a Datzilla database. Source Systems correlate to climate data delivery systems and/or data archives while Data-Products are individual products derived from climate datasets. The system allows users to attach supporting documentation to illustrate the error or to suggest 'fixes' to the data problem. Data Managers resolve these errors through on-line communication with the error reporters and incorporate corrected information into permanent data archives.
