5 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) IODE established in 1961 to enhance marine research, exploitation and development by facilitating the exchange of oceanographic data and information between participating Member States and by meeting the needs of users for data and information products

6 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) IODE = Formal Global network of 76 oceanographic data centres –(19 in EU) Informal Global network of MIM experts Cooperation with ICSU WDCs

7 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Data Policy 2003: adoption of IOC Oceanographic Data Policy Member States shall provide timely, free and unrestricted access to all data, associated metadata and products generated under the auspices of IOC programmes. Member States are encouraged to provide timely, free and unrestricted access to relevant data and associated metadata from non-IOC programmes that are essential for application to the preservation of life, beneficial public use and protection of the ocean environment, the forecasting of weather, the operational forecasting of the marine environment, the monitoring and modelling of climate and sustainable development in the marine environment. … (total 6 clauses)

8 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Strategy 2007: IOC Strategic Plan for oceanographic data and information management Vision: “A comprehensive and integrated ocean data and information system, serving the broad and diverse needs of IOC Member States, for both routine and scientific use”

9 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Strategy deliverables Well-documented standards and formats Assembled, quality controlled and archived data Easy discovery and access Timely dissemination Reliable and long-term preservation Collaboration with other IG bodies D&IM capacity in all IOC member states Equitable access to data and information for all

11 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) IODE and Standards To achieve broad agreement and commitment to adopt a number of standards related to ocean data management and exchange Joint JCOMM/IODE project: started Oostende, Jan 08 Metadata, Date and Time, Lat/Lon/Alt, Country names, Platform instances, Platform types, Science Words, Instruments, Units, Projects, Institutions, Parameters, Taxa, Ontology Resources, QC - T and S Profiles, QC - Surface T and S, QC - Sea Level, QC - Surface Waves, QC – Currents, Quality Flags… Process established to enable submission and agreement on proposed standards

12 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) OceanDataPortal Standards-based infrastructure that provides the integration of marine data and information from a network of distributed IODE NODCs as well as the resources from other participating systems Data discovery Data access Interoperable with other portal systems Call on other systems to collaborate with ODP

13 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Capacity Building Ocean Data and Information Networks (ODINs) Linking training, equipment, operational support –Regional context –Product and service oriented –Multi-stakeholder approach –Self-driven

14 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) OceanTeacher Expert and training resource for marine data and information management “Encyclopedia” and “Courses” Audience: –data/information managers –ocean researchers –University students

15 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Products & Services Professional networking: OceanExpert Sharing knowledge: OceanDocs, OpenScienceDirectory From data to information for management and policy making: Coastal Atlases Global Data projects: GODAR, GOSUD, GTSPP Cooperation in projects/orgs like SeaDataNet, MOTIIVE, ASCABOS, SIMORC, JCOMM/WIGOS, WMO WIS, IOI

16 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Collaboration IOC D&IM Strategy Advisory Group Established in May 2008 Will guide implementation Strategy Cross-disciplinary

17 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) IODE Project Office International Training Centre International Conference Centre Data/information services hub Expert Centre Based in Ostend, Belgium Funded by Flanders : >500 students from >100 countries >300 expert participants in workshops and conferences Approx. 15 events/year Hosts >100 web sites

18 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) IODE and Europe IODE is partner in SeaDataNet EU: 19 NODCs or DNAs European Commission – European Marine Observation and Data Network –“T he objective here is to integrate existing, but fragmented initiatives in order to facilitate access to primary data for public authoritiesm maritime services, related industries and researchers” Need to ensure interoperability between European, Australian, Russian and other systems Cooperation EC, IODE, JCOMM

19 First Marine Board Forum First Marine Board Forum 15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium) Food for thought… Is the “Integrated Maritime Policy for the EU” sufficiently outward looking ? Is there a plan for the long-term archival and preservation of data in the EU? Is the medium-term project based approach leading to long-term stable systems and infrastructures in the EU? Is there a long-term vision on data and information management in the EU? Is data management sufficiently entrenched in the marine science and observation research community? –Is data management education included in the University curriculum?
