Data Sharing Toolkit

BOX IV - How and where to share my data?

There are several data ingestion support facilities in place to assist data collectors/owners with making their data FAIR for others to re-use these valuable resources, often provided by national and or regional data centres and/or services. Some examples are:

Global network of oceanographic data centres:



  • National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)- provides archive services for much of the data collected by NOAA scientists, observing systems, and research initiatives.
  • The Australian Ocean data Network is an interoperable online network of marine and climate data resources. IMOS and the 6 Australian Commonwealth agencies form the core of the AODN.
  • The Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN) is an open partnership in the UK and its partners represent government departments, research institutions and private companies.
