Join the next 1-day Marine Data Management Awareness Course – 27 February

Data is a hugely valuable resource for all organisations and the marine industry is no exception. As the volumes and complexity of the data we create, and store grows, it has never been more important to understand what data you have, how it is used and learn how best to manage it.

How should I be managing my data? What is Data Governance? Should we have a Data Policy? Don’t become overloaded or overwhelmed by data – harness it, realise its potential and save yourself time, money and resource.

The OceanWise 1-day “Marine Data Management Awareness Course” is designed specifically for those working in and around the marine industry. It is organised in co-operation with, and hosted by, IMarEST 1 Birdcage Walk, London, SW1H 9JJ from 0930-1630.

What you will learn:

  • What Marine Data Management is, why data is such an important resource and why it matters to your organisation
  • The basics of Data Life-Cycles, Data and Metadata Standards, Co-ordinate Reference Systems, Data Quality, Sharing and Publishing

You will also take part in a discussion on the challenges organisations face in achieving Data Management ‘Best Practise’.

If you are involved in data collection, ingestion, analysis, sharing and re-use then this course will provide you with an extremely valuable insight on the world of data because ‘your data really does matter’.
