Marine Metadata

Project Manager: John Graybeal

MBARI is providing the leadership for a project jointly supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The project is developing metadata standards to control the vocabulary used to describe data sets. The project is becoming pivotal to a number of other efforts at MBARI, including projects that seek to automate data discovery and exploration.
