Data Service

The UTM Data Service is responsible for managing spatial data acquired during oceanographic cruises. The purpose is, on the one hand, to disseminate which data exist and where, how and when they have been acquired and on the other hand, to provide access to as much of the interoperable data as possible so that they can be used and reused.

 

For this purpose, the UTM has a Spatial Data Infrastructure at a national level that consists, on the one hand, of a Oceanographic Cruises Catalog that includes more than 500 cruises carried out since 1991 -with links to documentation associated to the cruise, navigation maps and datasets- and, on the other hand, a Geoportal that collects information from the datasets and allows you to create maps from different data layers.

At a international level, the UTM is a National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) of the Distributed European Marine Data Infrastructure SeaDataNet, to which the UTM provides metadata published in the Cruise Summary Report Catalog and in the data catalog Common Data Index, as well as public data to be shared.
