Brief description

This record provides an overview of the scope and research output of NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub Project B3 - "Enhancing access to relevant marine information –developing a service for searching, aggregating and filtering collections of linked open marine data". For specific data outputs from this project, please see child records associated with this metadata.

--------------------

This project aims to improve the searchability and delivery of sources of linked open data, and to provide the ability to forward collections of discovered data to web services for subsequent processing through the development of a linked open data search tool. This work will improve access to existing data collections, and facilitate the development of new applications by acting as an aggregator of links to streams of marine data. The work will benefit managers (i.e. Department of the Environment staff) by providing fast and simple access to a wide range of marine information products, and offering a means of quickly synthesizing and aggregating multiple sources of information.

Planned Outputs
• Delivery of open source code to perform the search functions described above.
• A simple initial web interface for performing the search and retrieval of results.
• Expanded collections of data holdings available in linked open format, including the use of semantic mark-up to enable fully-automated data aggregation and web services. In particular, addition of linked-open data capability to a pilot collection of existing data sets (GA, CERF and NERP data sets).

In addition to NESP (DoE) funding, this project is matched by an equivalent amount of in-kind support and co-investment from project partners and collaborators.
Purpose
This project will develop a flexible interface focused on the information requirements of the Department of the Environment (DOE) to search, filter and deliver connections to linked open marine data (this tool could also be applied to data within DOE). This will help provide efficient access to a wide range of information sources using a Google-type search interface that will be familiar to most users. The interface will accept a single search string, and will return an ordered/sorted list of results. The ranking of the results would be weighted on the basis of user type (e.g. specific types of users within DOE, scientists, general public). The resulting collections of data resources can then be forwarded on to other web services for plotting, ingestion into modelling tools and virtual laboratories, or saving as a report. This contrasts with previous efforts to generate map ‘portals’ by providing a targeted subset of information tailored to individual needs that can be updated dynamically (akin to an Amazon search for marine information as opposed to books and household goods).
