Over 22,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, and students will gather at the Moscone Center in San Francisco next week for the American Geophysical Union’s annual Fall Meeting… and Marinexplore will be there too!
We invite you to stop by booth #1227 throughout the week for a chat with Senior Data Manager John Graybeal and Ocean Data Engineer Dr. Roberto De Almeida. They’ll be happy to discuss Marinexplore’s vision of the future of ocean data, demonstrate the Marinexplore.org open data platform, and answer any questions you might have.
If you’d prefer to schedule a specific time to discuss how our private data platform can improve your organization’s data management workflow, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll contact you directly.
See you next week in San Francisco!
Big data is omnipresent, but what does it mean for the oceans? More importantly, what are the possible applications for specific datasets? Dr. Roberto de Almeida, Marinexplore’s Ocean Data Engineer brings up use cases and helps us better understand how ocean data is used.
Data Types and Platforms on Marinexplore

Creating an ocean data platform that provides daily value to everyone (from the offshore and maritime industry to governments and cutting-edge research) requires excellence in the 5V big data tenets: volume, value, velocity, variety and veracity. The prior blogpost on volume of ocean data introduced our technology principles and trends related to the growth of ocean data. In this blogpost I continue with the important design considerations of the Marinexplore data platform.
The Schmidt Ocean Institute hosted a symposium this past weekend on “Accelerating the Pace of Ocean Science through Technological Advancement and Open Sharing of Information”. I was invited as a panel member on the Data Sharing and Analytics panel. My goal was to provide concrete examples of solutions in place right now that implement selected best practices in ocean data management.
To my knowledge, there are not any fully operational systems that target the widest set of data management best practices, but these examples illustrate the existing services. I invite you to watch the talk and look at my notes. Perhaps you can use some of the examples as models for your own work.

Creating an ocean data platform that provides daily value to everyone (from the offshore and maritime industry to governments and cutting-edge research), requires that our team keeps a broader context in mind. At the NOAA Ocean Exploration 2020 event, Dawn Wright, Esri Chief Scientist, presented a great overview of ocean exploration using common tenets of data science: Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity . To continue this valuable conversation we aim to share Marinexplore’s 5V tenets and technology principles. We are sure looking forward to your feedback.
