Ocean Data Interoperability Platform


6th Workshop - Reference documentation 

The 6th ODIP Workshop (= 2nd Workshop of ODIP II project) was held from Monday 2nd May 2016 till Thursday 5th May 2016 in Boulder, USA. The programme was dedicated to discussing the progress of the 3 existing ODIP Prototype activities, introducing biology data management, elaborating big data and workflow processing, and discussing follow-up activities for the 3 cross-cutting activities: Data Publishing & Citation, Vocabularies, and Person Identifiers, and brainstorming on a new ODIP II prototype 'the Digital Playground'. The 6th Workshop was joined by oceanographic data management experts from the 3 regions (Europe, USA and Australia), IOC-IODE and Canada. 

The presentations are available from the IODE website

More info about the developments for the ODIP Prototype activities can be found as follows:
* ODIP Prototype 1 concerning Data Discovery and Access (see latest progress presentation)
* ODIP Prototype 2 concerning Cruise Summary Reports (see latest progress presentation and on CSR harvesting)
* ODIP Prototype 3 concerning Sensor Web Enablement (See latest progress presentation)

Also register and contribute to the SWE Wiki which is set up to collect and discuss different approaches how OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards (Sensor Observation Service (SOS), Obervations and Measurements (O&M) and Sensor Model Language (SensorML)) are used in different projects and systems. The aim of this activity is to define a best practice and a set of profiles for the SWE standards for marine sensors and applications.

In March 2016 an SWE Workshop was held at Oceanology International 2016 to present the status and to have a dialogue with industry.
