NODC Report: Flanders (Belgium)
The Flanders Marine Data Centre acquires and processes oceanographic data and information, and redistributes these according to the users’ needs. It integrates various types of data, checks their consistency, and performs the quality control. To realize the objectives, agreements about data exchange are made with partners at the regional, federal and international level. VMDC actively participates in international networks, primarily through the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.
