The quest for dark matter has been puzzling scientists since over a century. The last two decades have seen no less than 20 experiments designed to directly detect dark matter in the local halo. Their sensitivities span over 5 orders of magnitude. In addition to those, hints for the presence of dark matter particles are sought-for in accelerators searches and in cosmic rays. These experiments employ different technologies and methodologies, making their analyses and combination a rather demanding task.
The Dark Matter Data Center aims at bringing together the large amount of recorded data and make it easily available for the dark matter community. It offers a repository where data, methods and code are clearly presented in a unified interface for comparison, reproduction, combination and analysis. The Dark Matter Data Center is also a forum where Experimental Collaborations can directly publish their data and phenomenologists the implementation of their models, in accordance to Open Science principles.
