What is BODC?

National facility concerned with looking after and distributing marine data

Part of NOC National Marine Facilities

Serve science, education and industry, as well as the wider public

Our staff include research scientists and IT specialists

Starting premise - data must be secure and readily usable in the long term without reference to the originator.

Roles and responsibilities national
Roles and responsibilities - National

  • NERC Marine data centre

    • One of six NERC data centres

    • Ingest and make data available

Data management activities
Data Management Activities

  • Overall aim

  • To manage & secure marine data for the long-term through the use of stable & maintained data formats.

  • Quality control

    • Visualisation of data – “screening”

    • Anomalous data points

      marked (data unchanged)

    • Developing more complex automated systems

  • Metadata assembly

    • Oracle tables

    • Link data to time, position, originator, restrictions, documentation (instrumentation, techniques, etc.)

  • Audit

  • Banking

    • Final version to a secure location

    • Accessible via web software


Providing access to data

Little point in data management unless the data are used – 72,205 requests 2012/13 (cf. 42,828 in 2005/06 & 6,366 in 2001/02)

Direct contact requests by telephone & email ~700 last year (cf. 217 2001/02)

BODC’s CD-ROMs - successful media for project data ~150 last year (total 8244)

Providing access to data

  • Online data inventories & catalogues

  • Online data delivery systems

  • BODC Web Services

  • Published Data Library

  • Download interface software

  • Near-real time data via sub-webs


Online data delivery

Users now expect to search for, view & receive data via the internet

User friendly systems with GIS interfaces

Data automatically updated every evening

Moving to deliver all data this way

> 88,000 “series” from 148 organisations web searchable & down load via “shopping basket”

> 20,000 in projects soon

> 2,500,000 discrete samples soon

Allow project/organisation specific portals

Online data delivery

Will still support the “personal” request service
