Ocean Information Technology Pilot Project
MetadataShow full item record
The Ocean Information Technology Project was conceived to be “a major, concerted effort with an efficient and effective, comprehensive data and information management system as the goal. We are seeking a 21st Century solution that takes advantage of leading technology and methods. The data and management system will be user driven and, in this case, the users will comprise a mix of ocean science, non-ocean science, operational agencies, commercial and private enterprise users, and the general public.” Its history goes back to a presentation by Dr. Neville Smith during JCOMM-I. Subsequently Dr. Smith proposed the OIT concept to GSC-V (2002) where it was recommended to establish an OIT Pilot Project Steering Team.
