One of the unique features of EMODnet globally is the multidisciplinary nature of the data that it aggregates and makes available. The EMODnet thematic sub-portals create data layers and products ranging from information on physical oceanography to seabed habitats to human activities. However, users increasingly want to work across disciplines and visualise or combine these multi-thematic data layers.
Are you excited by the potential of open marine data? Join us at the 1st EMODnet Open Sea Lab to explore EMODnet's open marine data! During a three day open data bootcamp from 15-17 November 2017 in the vibrant port city of Antwerp, Belgium, we will ideate and co-create innovative solutions to unique problems using EMODnet’s wealth of marine data and ocean observations.
