How can we improve the re-use and sharing of marine data by businesses?

For some time, the private sector has been name checked by marine observatories and public data-sharing initiatives as a target-user of their resources and/or as a potential source of data, with little concomitant targeted development by these initiatives to facilitate this.

As EMODnet moves into Phase III of its development and focuses more on user uptake to achieve the objectives of the Marine Knowledge 2020 Strategy, a more pro-active approach is required to effectively engage industry, both as users and providers of data.

A spotlight on the EMODnet bathymetry portal: innovations and results

Bathymetric data, in essence information about the water depth and underwater topography of oceans and seas, is important in many aspects of marine research, administration and spatial planning as well as for management of marine and coastal environments and their resources. In coastal areas societal needs are at the forefront: safety of vessel navigation is the most prioritized rationale for bathymetric mapping close to the coast, around shoals and along shipping routes.

Welcome to the new EMODnet Data Ingestion portal

Turn your data into a valuable asset for the marine and maritime community

Knowledge is all about data. Therefore, we need more data, more data, and … more data. Since 2009, this has been the main driver of EMODnet. EMODnet collects data to make data, metadata and data products on European coastal and ocean waters available to help governments, industry and policy makers to make informed decisions. To further speed up this data collection process, a new EMODnet service has been developed: the EMODnet Data Ingestion portal.
