WDS Data portal

ЗображенняThe implementation of a portal allowing for retrieving data from at least part of the WDCs was identified as a feasible goal during the last WDC meeting in Bremen. The first step will concentrate on metadata catalogues. Candidates who wish to participate in the initial setup of the portal framework need to implement current standards in the field of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) and can generally use the resulting interoperability to network also with other communities and portals, e.g. the planned Ocean Data Portal (IODE), IPY DIS, or the Global Change Master Directory (GCMD). A major goal will also be to integrate the ICSU World Data System into the GEOSS framework.
