Metrology Data contains calibration procedures and technical manuals for test and inspection equipment. It also contains engineering information on calibration laboratories, calibration systems and measurement systems. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) contributes a significant portion of the engineering data related to measurement science.
GIDEP Metrology Data is information provided by participants from industry, government organizations, and professional groups of the metrology community. Documents submitted by a participant may be either as a printed paper copy or electronic media.
With GIDEP WWW Database Access, GIDEP Participants can:
The growth of GIDEP Metrology data depends on data contributions from its participants. GIDEP encourages the submission of any Metrology Data related documents from participants as well as non-participants. The documents submitted may be either as a printed hard copy or, preferably, as a word processing file on electronic media.
Q: What are the types of metrology documents?
A: While Metrology Data includes a broad range of measurement related subjects, the majority of data is calibration procedures and general metrology documents. It is divided into three data types:
GIDEP does NOT contain any Classified, Copyright, or Proprietary data.
Q: Where does the information come from?
A: While Army, Navy, & Air Force Metrology Centers are the major contributors of Calibration Procedures, the broad spectrum of information results from submissions by participating activities throughout the U.S. and Canada. If you have any Metrology Data related reports, send them to GIDEP to be included to the data base.
Q: How do I get access to Metrology documents?
A: Access to Metrology documents is available on-line from the GIDEP WWW Database Access
