Paradigm shift from traditional discipline based marine research

  • Multidisciplinary ecosystem level approach: promoted in Europe by Marine Strategy Framework directive MSFD (2008) and Marine Knowledge 2020
  • Requires large amounts of good quality, interoperable data from a range of disciplines and organisations
barriers to re use of marine data
Barriers to re-use of marine data
  • Use of different
    • Formats
    • Standards
    • Best practice
    • Co-ordinate systems
    • Technologies
    • National and organisational data access policies
e infrastructures




  • A number of regional initiatives have made significant progress in addressing these barriers by developing marine data management infrastructures
  • Development of these infrastructures is being promoted and supported by international organizations such as UNESCO‘s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC)

Ocean Data Interoperability Platform

EU-US-Australia collaborative project

Grant Number: 312492


Activity: INFRA-2012-3.2: International co-operation with the USA

on common e-infrastructure for scientific data

Start date: 1 October 2012

Duration: 36 months

Funded in parallel by European Commission, National Science Foundation (NSF) and Australian Government


ODIP partners

Europe: 10 EU funded partners: 6 countriesNERC-BGS/BODC, MARIS, OGS, IFREMER, HCMR, ENEA, ULG, CNR, RBINS-MUMM, TNO

odip objectives
ODIP: Objectives
  • To establish an EU/USA/Australia/IOC-IODE co-ordination platform to facilitate the interoperability of ocean and marine data management infrastructures
  • To demonstrate this co-ordination through the development of several joint prototype interoperability solutions that allows effective sharing of marine and ocean data across scientific domains, organisations and national boundaries
  • Development of a common approach to marine data management that can be extended to other regions and organisations beyond the original project consortium
overall strategy
Overall strategy

Development of a collaboration platform to facilitate organised dialogue between key organisations in Europe, USA and Australia involved with marine data management.

Achieved by:

  • Creating inventories of existing standards and policies
  • Publication of these existing standards and best practice through ODIP portal and Research Data Alliance
  • Regular joint workshops to develop interoperability solutions and/or agree on common standards
  • Development of prototypes for testing and evaluating potential interoperability solutions
  • Dissemination /promotion of ODIP activities to encourage wider participation and adoption of the outcomes of the project
progress to date
Progress to date……….
  • 1st ODIP workshop: Ostende, Belgium (February 2013)
    • Addressed 6 discussion topics
    • Resulted in an extensive list of actions
    • Formulated into three prototype interoperability solution development tasks
  • 2nd ODIP workshop: San Diego, USA (December 2013)
    • Addressed three discussion topics and implementation plans for the prototype development tasks
  • Initiation of 3 prototype interoperability solution development tasks
odip 1 objective
ODIP 1: objective
  • Establishing interoperability between the SeaDataNet, IMOS and NODC data discovery and access services using brokering services
  • Lead by European partners via SeaDataNet
    • Initially addressing use of brokers at the metadata level
    • Progress to data access services (possibly including authentication and authorisation systems)
odip 1 the plan
ODIP 1: the plan
  • make use of the (Euro)GEOSS Brokerage harmonise the 3 regional services to a common level
    • SeaDataNet (Europe)
    • IMOS (Australia)
    • NODC (USA)
  • start at metadata level, but progress to data access, including providing solutions for possible AAA systems
  • use the broker to facilitate access to data from the regional services by the GEOSS and Ocean Data Portals
odip 2 objective
ODIP 2: objective
  • ODIP 2: Establishing interoperability between cruise summary reporting systems in Europe, the USA and Australia
  • Lead by Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) partners (USA)
    • Improvement of delivery and exchange of cruise summary information through the use of common formats and vocabularies
    • Use of GeoNetWorks for routine harvesting of cruise data for delivery via the Partnership for Observation of Global Oceans (POGO) portal
odip 2 the plan
ODIP 2: the plan
  • Publish ISO Cruise Summary Reports at regional nodes:
    • Marine National Facility (Australia)
    • SeaDataNet (Europe)
    • R2R (USA)
  • Deploy GeoNetwork catalogues at regional nodes providing both a GUI (web portal) and API (CSW service)
  • Harvest GeoNetwork nodes into POGO global catalogue
odip 3 objective
ODIP 3: objective
  • Establishment of a prototype for a Sensor Observation Service (SOS) for selected sensors installed on vessels and in real-time monitoring systems using sensor web enablement (SWE)
  • Lead by AODN (Australia)
    • regional initiatives progress towards the adoption of SWE allowing direct standardised access to the data from operational sensor systems
odip 3 the plan
ODIP 3: the plan
  • establish a collaboration tool (Github)
  • compile inventory of SOS services and their endpoints
  • compile inventory of instrument SensorML records & O&M structures
  • compile inventory of vocab and registry services
  • Working groups to assess SOS performance
  • propose templates for SensorML/StarFl and O&M profiles
  • examine vocabulary services and potential mappings
  • Set-up a test bed
dissemination of odip outcomes
Dissemination of ODIP outcomes
