Enhancing access to relevant marine information: Developing a service for searching, aggregating and filtering collections of linked open marine data – Scoping study

This project seeks to improve the searchability, discoverability and delivery of marine information through the development of an online service capable of searching, filtering and organizing linked open marine data. The service would also provide the capability of forwarding the collections of discovered data to web services for subsequent processing into products of higher utility.  This work will improve access to existing data collections, and will facilitate the development of new applications by acting as an aggregator of links to sources of marine information.  The work will benefit managers (i.e. Department of the Environment staff) by providing fast and simple access to a wide range of relevant marine information products, and offering a means of quickly synthesizing and aggregating information from multiple sources.
