The International Oceanographic Data Exchange (IODE) of IOC-UNESCO - together with regional partners across the globe - is developing an inclusive Ocean Data and Information System (ODIS) to allow digital stakeholders to reliably share and discover key ocean data. ODIS is built by its participants: anyone with data to share can become a node in the ODIS network. During this course, participants will be trained in how to link their systems into ODIS and to make them a more visible and actionable part of the ocean’s digital ecosystem.

The course’s central aims are to:

  1. Equip participants with a conceptual understanding of what ODIS is, why it has been created, and how it works
  2. Equip participants with conceptual and practical understandings of the technical components of ODIS, including its use of patterns and web-based publishing and harvesting
  3. Provide participants with the tools they need to describe their (meta)data and publish it
