Wake up your data - set them free for Blue Society

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 160 organisations that together work on assembling, harmonising and making marine data, products and metadata more available to public and private users. The Data Ingestion portal facilitates additional data managers to ingest their marine datasets for further processing, publishing as open data and contributing to applications for society. The initial project started 19th May 2016 and since then it has developed the pathways for processing and elaborating of data submissions, laying a basis for promotion and marketing activities, and making an inventory of potential data sources and their providers.

The EMODnet Data Ingestion portal seeks to identify and to reach out to other potential providers in order to make their data sets also part of the total offer. This can concern historic data sets that can become part of the large European archives that might be of use for many applications. This can also concern operational oceanography data streams from monitoring platforms that can become part of the European operational oceanography data exchange for feeding forecasting models and supporting various operations.
