-The inventory was developed during the project timeframe. Contributors (researchers and national or regional monitoring programmes) provided information about their own research areas, consisting of existing knowledge and data collected before the project start. The collection was realised using ""calls for evidence"" accompanied by a spread sheet and details instructions. New data were also collected during the project timeframe through specific investigations made in collaboration with different stakeholders. Data were then adapted to the common data format used for the inventory. ​+The inventory was developed during the project timeframe.

 The inventory is conceived as a work-in-progress tool and larger data sets can be added to the existing data  in a database on the internet. The main goal of the database is to provide periodic, consistent and homogenized datasets on permafrost state and evolution. The files available for downloading are updated once per year with a Versioning Number (VN) that univocally identifying the dataset and the Release Notes (RN) used for describing the main characteristics of the dataset and provide warnings on known. Once a year, a mail is sent to all the data providers asking for yearly updates.\\ ​ The inventory is conceived as a work-in-progress tool and larger data sets can be added to the existing data  in a database on the internet.
