Flemish Marine Data and Information Centre

Description The Flemish Marine Data and Information Centre (FMDC) is a young and modern data centre that archives data and information pursuant to the latest international standards (IODE) and furthermore puts this data and information at the disposal of scientists and policy makers. The FMDC is mainly a service centre. Within the scope of numerous cooperation projects the centre provides expertise and logistic support for the development of data and information systems, the archiving of datasets, the communication of projects (e.g. developing and hosting websites), etc. The FMDC is specialized in the development of information systems, taxonomic and biogeographic databases as well as databases that collect monitoring and survey data. Most of these databases are available online and at the disposal of all interested persons through a user-friendly search interface. The online inventory can be used to search databases from different marine research disciplines and with an international scope. The FMDC is operated through the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and closely cooperates with national and international organisations such as IOC/IODE, ICES and MarBEF, the European node of OBIS, etc.
