dc.description.abstractSeaDataNet is an EU funded project (2006 – 2011) to develop and provide a Pan-European infrastructure for marine & ocean data management. The project builds upon earlier data management infrastructure projects, undertaken over a period of 20 years by an expanding network of oceanographic data centres from the countries around all European seas. Its predecessor project Sea-Search had a strict focus on metadata. SeaDataNet maintains significant interest in the further development of the metadata infrastructure, but its primary objective is the provision of easy access to data and generic data products. SeaDataNet is a distributed infrastructure connecting 40 data centres from 35 countries around the Black Sea, Mediterranean, North East Atlantic, North Sea, Baltic and Arctic regions. These include: - National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC’s) - Satellite Data Centres. The SeaDataNet portal has been set up at http://www.seadatanet.org and it provides a platform for all SeaDataNet services and standards. It includes a number of discovery services. A key service is the Common Data Index (CDI), based upon the ISO19115 metadata model. It gives detailed insight in available datasets at partners databases and provides an on-line shopping mechanism for direct ordering and downloading of datasets from distributed data centres, also taking into account data access restrictions and types of users. This SeaDataNet V1 system is technically operational and good progress is being made with interconnecting all 40 data centres from SeaDataNet. Interoperability is the key to distributed data management system success and it is achieved in SeaDataNet V1 by: - Using common quality control protocols and flag scale - Using controlled vocabularies from a single source that have been developed using international content governance - Adopting the ISO 19115 metadata standard for all metadata directories - Providing XML Validation Services to quality control the metadata maintenance, including field content verification based on Schematron. - Providing standard metadata entry tools - Using harmonised Data Transport Formats (NetCDF, ODV ASCII and MedAtlas ASCII) for data sets delivery - Adopting of OGC standards for mapping and viewing services - Using SOAP Web Services in the SeaDataNet architecture For the Black Sea region and the Caspian Sea region additional projects are underway, also funded by the EU. These projects are targeted at further developing regional data management networks, that give overview and access to locally managed datasets by services, interoperable with SeaDataNet. The Upgrade BlackSeaSCENE project started in 2009 and is successor to the previous BlackSeaSCENE project. It now engages 43 local institutes, that are adopting the SeaDataNet services and standards, to populate a regional infrastructure, harmonised with SeaDataNet. The NODCs from the Black Sea countries are leading the build up of national networks and act as linking pin for transfer of expertise and tools from the SeaDataNet network. A comparable development is on-going in the Caspian Sea region via the CASPINFO project, engaging 12 local institutes. IODE is partner in SeaDataNet, Upgrade BlackSeaSCENE and CASPINFO to ensure cohesion on a global scale and to support training and capacity building activities.en
