Platforms - Hjalte Parner's PPT presentation
|No. of Platforms
||445 (see note below)
||2-character country code (see the ICES/IOC
country codes), followed by 2-character specific vessel identifier (only
unique within that country)
||Unique index numbers, from 1 to 8970 (some values missing)
||Appears to be identical to ICES-SeaDataNet
||ICES/SeaDataNet governance based on an e-mail list (platforms)
including both ICES and NODC. Established to try and draw ICES/NODC
lists back together.
Primary Standards for Consideration
GCMD - 99% satellite instances; all vessels covered by single term SHIPS
ICES-SeaDataNet - From
WOD + WOD - From
http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-datafmts.html. The TXT file is
infelicitously formatted and cannot be inserted into a useful spreadsheet
NOTE: US NODC and the WOD no longer direct code-seekers to
which has been superseded by the above link.
- The old CDI list can be provided, but it is assumed to have been
incorporated into the SeaDataNet list above.
