What Is MATCH?

The Metadata Access Tool for Climate and Health (MATCH) is a publicly accessible, online tool for researchers that offers centralized access to metadata ‐ standardized contextual information ‐ about thousands of government-held datasets related to health, the environment, and climate-science. MATCH is one of a growing number of tools, driven by open data, that are being made available by the Obama Administration as fuel for innovation, ideas, and insights ‐ in this case, at the important intersection of climate and human health.

What You Can Do With MATCH

MATCH is a searchable clearinghouse of publicly available Federal metadata and links for data sets and tools. MATCH includes:

  • Monitoring and surveillance data sets
  • Early warning systems
  • Tools for characterizing the health impacts of global climate change
