The EMODnet Data Ingestion portal aims:

  • To identify and reach out to organisations from public, research and private sectors who are managing marine datasets for bathymetry, geology, physics, chemistry, biology and/or human activities and who are not yet connected and contributing to the existing marine data management infrastructures
  • To motivate and support those potential data providers to release their datasets for safekeeping and subsequent freely distribution through EMODnet
  • To facilitate the inclusion of those marine datasets by means of a data ingestion service and subsequent communication with expert data repositories to work up the metadata documentation for direct publishing and, in a second stage, for making the submitted datasets fit for inclusion in the EMODnet data services and products.
