An overview of the Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project is presented with a brief description of the products to be developed. This is a Japanese inter-university research program to build the metadata database for ground-based observations of the upper atmosphere. The project also develops the software to analyze the observational data provided by various universities/institutes. These products will be of great help to researchers in efficiently finding, obtaining, and utilizing various data dispersed across the universities/institutes. This is expected to contribute significantly to the promotion of interdisciplinary research, leading to more a comprehensive understanding of the upper atmosphere.
