|Authors: ||Reed, G.|
|ASFA Terms: ||Oceanographic data|
|Issue Date: ||2002|
|Series: ||Seventeenth Session of the IOC Committee on International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE)|
|Abstract: ||The IODE Group of Experts on the Technical Aspects of Data Exchange (GETADE) has
the following terms of reference (IODE-XV, 1996):
(i) Collaborate with IGOSS-CP, IODE GE-MIM and the data management groups of other international bodies and scientific programmes in the development of technical solutions for the management, exchange and easier integration of oceanographic data and information with data from other disciplines.
(ii) Collaborate with IODE GE-MIM in the development of a common WWW
interface for IODE Centres to deliver data and information in a consistent manner.
(iii) Develop a set of documents to be used by data originators or data centres which
describe guidelines for formatting ocean data and information.
(iv) Continue the developments of a common data format which conforms to other major data collection programmes, meets the needs to handle more diverse data types and is independent of the exchange medium. This will include as appropriate the specification of software modules that may be required.
(v) Liaise with other programmes and agencies concerned with oceanographic data
exchange to ensure as much as possible a closer alignment of data structure and
At the 8th Session of GETADE (TADE-VII, 2000) the Group discussed at length the
direction in which it felt GETADE should develop in the next years. The Group identified the following medium-term objectives for GETADE:
Objective 1: Develop End-To-End Data Management framework strategy and appropriate projects, products and services, based on user requirements.
Objective 2: Develop IODE Global metadata management system.
Objective 3: Develop marine XML as a mechanism to facilitate format and platform
independent information, metadata and data exchange.
Objective 4: Develop the IODE Resource Kit as a marine data and information
management reference tool for scientists and data/information managers.
Objective 5: Organize integrated national and regional level capacity building projects
and programmes, linking equipment, training and operational activities.
Objective 6: Develop a high-quality IODE web presence and IODE Data/Information
Management Portal, as a mechanism to promote IODE, to reinforce the ‘IODE family’
principle, and to guide users to marine information, metadata and data sources.|
