A Data Type Registry provides a way to easily register detailed and structured descriptions of data that can range from simple single value elements up to complex multi-dimensional scientific datasets. The benefits of registration include enabling those who did not create a given instance of typed data to understand and potentially reuse it, to encourage others to use established data types in their own data collections and analysis efforts, and to build services and applications that could be applied to standardized data types. This presentation will focus on the need for and advantages of Data Type Registries and will provide a demonstration of the latest version of a registry prototype.
