As a part of the national strategy for developing a national marine data centre, IMR needs to further develop and refine data handling, management and dissemination of data and data products. The main objective of this project is to prepare the institute to be able host a wide suite of marine data, and to make them readily available to researchers and other users. As a first step along this route, a general infrastructure is developed and applied to our field operations. However, the technical solutions, the strategy and work flows are general and will be used as a template for other types of data.
The project is organized in well defined tasks: Improve and operationalize the operational infrastructure, incorporate and quality testing historical data, and improving tools to extract data/products from the data model.
The project consists of seven work packages:
