Marine Metadata Interoperability
-

Web Services

<
MMI

/>

Marine

scientists

face

an

opportunity

and

a

challenge

in

the

volume

of

data

available

from

various

ocean

observing

systems
.

The

MMI

Project

can

help

make

it

easier

for

you

to

find,

access,

and

use

other

data

sets
.

If

you

create

marine

science

data

sets,

MMI

can

help

make

your

data

easier

to

advertise,

distribute,

reuse,

and

combine

with

other

data

sets
.

Our

goal

is

to

promote

collaborative

research

in

the

marine

science

domain,

by

simplifying

the

incredibly

complex

world

of

metadata

into

specific,

straightforward

guidance
.

MMI

hopes

to

encourage

scientists

and

data

managers

at

all

levels

to

apply

good

metadata

practices

from

the

start

of

a

project,

by

providing

the

best

advice

and

resources

for

data

management
.

to

the

project

are

being

.

The

MMI

promotes

events,

such

as

workshops

and

web

conferences,

for

the

advancement

of

cyberinfrastructure

in

the

marine

community
.

Our

hundreds

of

members

regularly

participate

Ontology Creation

MMI is the liaison to bring community experts together to
create controlled vocabularies and express them in the
Web Ontology Language (OWL). These allows to clearly
define the concepts and their relations, and to make
inferences among them.
