NERC technology to spearhead marine data drive

UK technology is at the forefront of an international project to make marine data more accessible to researchers.

The project, called ODIP II, aims to unify data sets that are stored by research centres in different formats. It is a collaboration between Australia, the European Union and the United States, and is led by the British Geological Survey and the Marine Information Service in the Netherlands.

The Natural Environment Research Council’s vocabulary server will be used to translate between the different data formats. The server was developed by the British Oceanographic Data Centre, a national facility operated as part of the National Oceanography Centre.
