Data Management and Marine Information Infrastructure

When you need to improve your data management skills

Our data management training courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of the coastal, marine and maritime sectors. They are ideal for those working in ports, offshore and coastal engineering and construction, where data management and a marine information infrastructure are key to safe and efficient operations.

The aim of the training is to assist you to develop your understanding in order to achieve up-to-date and cost effective ‘best practise’ in marine data management. This will equip you to better meet the challenges that you might face in the way your data is created, managed and published, whether using proprietary or open source software as an enabler.

Our data management training is tailored to your specific organisational requirements, whether in the form of capacity building or in assisting your organisation to adapt to new governance, technology, standards or specifications in order to gain operational efficiencies in your business.

For those new to data management, we can offer the following introductory courses:

Marine Data Management Awareness Course
Delivered in conjunction with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), this one day course is aimed at those who work with marine data from its capture, processing, ingestion, re-use and curation and those seeking to discover, view, download and transform data. It shows how effective data management can improve your organisation’s efficiency in data acquisition, storage and analysis. It will ensure you understand data use with respect to corporate risk, re-use, audit and traceability whilst at the same time minimising costs.

For the dates of the next course, and details on how to book, please see our Events Page or visit the IMarEst website

Fundamentals of Marine Spatial Data Infrastructures (MSDI)
This half day workshop has been delivered to many hydrographic offices and regional hydrographic commissions. It explores the ‘four pillars’ of MSDI, namely Content (Data), Standards and Specifications, Technology (ICT) and Governance (People and Organisations); how these elements interact with each other and the key challenges you may face in delivering a successful MSDI.
