Where I work a lot of people end up using Excel spreadsheets for storing data. This has limitations and maybe some less than obvious problems. I'd like to recommend a uniform way for storing and archiving data collected in the department. Most of the data could be stored in simple csv type files but it would be nice to have something that stores more information about the variables and units. netcdf seems like overkill (and not easy for casual users). Same for postgres and mysql databases. Could someone recommend some system for storing relatively small data sets (50-100 variables, <1000 records) that would be reliable, safe, and easy for people to view and edit their data that works nicely with R and is open source? Am I asking for the moon?
