Ocean observation is essential for the knowledge base of the EU Green Deal. Data are collected by different authorities for different purposes. This initiative aims to achieve a common EU approach for measuring once and using the data for many purposes.
Hans Dahlin has spent 50 years observing the ocean. In this short film he explains how marine data sharing has changed dramatically over the years and why, for him, EMODnet "was a dream that came true."
EMODnet Chemistry's webODV provides fast and easy access to EMODnet Chemistry datasets, and seamlessly lets users explore, visualize and extract subsets of the data simply by using their web browser. No software installation or download of the sometimes very large datasets to the user’s computer is necessary.
EMODnet Physics has developed a prototype data portal with advanced data services providing straightforward access to centrally-curated circumpolar datasets and metadata records. The portal is composed of a map interface displaying the spatial distribution of observing platforms and plotting tools for datasets. The open webinar will present the new portal to interested stakeholders.
On 15 October 2020, 12 shortlisted teams will compete in the online final of EU Datathon – the EU open data competition. The preselection jury made this selection from among 121 submitted proposals, the highest number of entries since the first EU Datathon took place in 2017.
