"Data Management for Marine Geological and Geophysical Datasets (including integration with the Marine Data Repository)"
Research Measure: Policy Support Research Measure
Funding Type: NDP Marine Research Sub-Programme
Funding Year: 2007
Project Duration: 36 months
Project Type: Project-Based Award
Total Grant-Aid: €399,905
Lead Partner: CMRC, University College Cork
This research project aims to produce a reference for the storage and management of geological / goephysical datasets in the Marine Institute, with the goal of making the data easily available for discovery, access and analysis by Marine Institute and external end users.
The data generated by the INFOMAR programme will be a key dataset for the study. A major requirement will be the ability to integrate with (and evaluate using) the ArcGIS Marine Data Model as implemented in the Marine Data Repository by the Marine Institute.
This research will provide best practice data management guidance for the complete management and analysis of geophysical / geological data within the Marine Institute. This will reduce the effort required to manage the data from capture to delivery and analysis, and will enhance the ease of access to geological / geophysical data within the Marine Institute. This project will also allow integrated analysis with other Marine Institute datasets, including those already held with the Marine Institute's Marine Data Repository data warehouse.
