(Tool description last modified on 2011-09-20.)


To facilitate data discovery in the oceanographic realm, MMI has developed web services and tools, provided guides, and hosted mapping sessions and workshops to facilitate usage and discovery of vocabularies including easy to use tools to crosswalks from project vocabularies to more standard/recommended ones.

In addition, MMI has conceived and begun implementing a semantic framework, to let the Marine science community leverage this library of semantic work. MMI wrote up a description of the semantic framework, which includes both a general overview of the framework's operations, and details about user and software interactions.
