The data policy
EMODnet central portal developments
There will be full and open exchange of data, metadata and products shared within WDS, … All shared data, metadata and products being free of charge or no more than cost of reproduction will be encouraged for research and education.
IOC Oceanographic Data Exchange Policy
Member States shall provide timely, free and unrestricted access to all data, associated metadata and products generated under the auspices of IOC programmes.
Member States are encouraged to provide timely, free and unrestricted access to relevant data and associated metadata from non-IOC programmes …. for non-commercial use by the research and education communities, provided that any products or results of such use shall be published in the open literature without delay or restriction.
VLIZ advocates free data exchange and supports the IOC Oceanographic Data Exchange Policy. Wherever possible and relevant, the data from the databases will be made available online through the Internet. Naturally, restrictions may apply, as a result of which we cannot offer unlimited access. This is for example the case for data of which VLIZ is not the primary source: in this case the data exchange policy of the originator of the data will apply.
