Data policy of AD-Net
Both numerical / graphical data of AD-Net in this website (https://www-lidar.nies.go.jp/AD-Net) are freely downloadable, and secondary (further) distribution is prohibited. When the user submits a paper to some journal or makes oral presentation utilizing data from AD-Net, the user has to obtain permission from data manager (currently A. Shimizu) for the usage. Based on the contact, data manager may ask the user to include relevant AD-Net members (site owners, data analysts, etc.) into co-authors, or ask to acknowledge them in proper way. In both cases, citing appropriate literature is required.
