  • Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System

  • European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI)

  • Comprising «Knowledge Centre» and (integrated) Data Management System

  • Developing a data policy based on IPY principles

  • Existing data centres

  • Metadata harvesting

  • Standards?

Sios data policy

SIOS Data Policy

  • Promotes free and open access to data

  • Requested data shall be made available in a timely manner, preferably online and free of charge

  • An INSPIRE compliant set of metadata will be offered, including data citation information as required by the SIOS IPR policy.

  • Recommends licencing models such as Creative Commons, ideally the Polar Information Commons model, to define use restrictions and guidelines.

  • Introducing DIF

Harvesting by amd

Harvesting by AMD

  • DOKIPY OAI-PMH data provider

  • Stable metadata population at AMD?

  • Controlled vocabulary issues

    • Locations and science keywords ok

    • Data centres and projects require manual intervention

    • Users must be allowed to enter new names not listed

    • New names are replaced with GCMD valids before OAI-PMH exposure

    • New projects/data centres not listed at GCMD require manual update

    • Convoluted validation

  • Login
