The Investigator Toolkit (ITK) is the set of software tools that have been "DataONE enabled" so that users of the software are able to access, contribute, and work with data exposed through DataONE. Examples of ITK software include Morpho, DataUp, and an R-client. The ITK is a core part of the DataONE architecture, arising from the understanding that DataONE needs to work with the tools that people are already using, as well as those tools which the broader community will develop in the future. Different scientific domains and different types of users will need a wide variety of tools to create, manage, and analyze data.

Further information and a list of current tools within the ITK can be found at the DataONE Investigator Toolkit page.
For information on how to enable software to work with DataONE as part of the ITK, see the DataONE Architecture Documentation.
