Proposal 2010/01: Proposal to adopt the SeaDataNet Common Data Index metadata profile (CDI) as a Standard for Oceanographic Data Exchange

Scope: SeaDataNet is a leading infrastructure in Europe for marine & ocean data management. With support of Member States and the European Commission it is actively operating and further developing a Pan-European infrastructure for managing, indexing and providing access to ocean and marine data sets and data products, acquired via research cruises and other observational activities, in situ and remote sensing. The basis of SeaDataNet is interconnecting 40 National Oceanographic Data Centres and Marine Data Centers from 35 countries around European seas into a distributed network of data resources with common standards for metadata, vocabularies, data transport formats, quality control methods and flags, and access. Thereby most of the NODC’s operate and/or are developing national networks to other institutes in their countries to ensure national coverage and long-term stewardship of available data sets. ...

Envisaged publication type: The proposal is intended for informing and making all local, national, and international bodies, programs and projects that manage and exchange marine and oceanographic data, aware of the Common Data Index specifications and its implementation in the SeaDataNet infrastructure.
