The IMarEST will again be running a one-day Marine Data Management Awareness Course together with OceanWise on Wednesday 8th February 2017 at IMarEST HQ, 1 Birdcage Walk, London, SW1H 9JJ.
Data is the new global currency and a vital asset for success in any market or venture today. Accordingly, a solid understanding of data management is crucial for anyone using marine data.
This course looks at how effective data management can improve an organisation’s efficiency in data acquisition, storage, analysis and re-use. It will lead to a better understanding of data use in respect of corporate risk, audit and traceability and reducing costs.
The course will examine the data life-cycle, data and metadata standards, co-ordinate reference systems and data quality and publishing and discuss the challenges faced in achieving data management best practice. This course will provide an invaluable insight for anyone involved in collecting, managing, using or publishing marine data.
