MARINE AND COASTAL HUB DATA MANAGEMENT
Hub data will be published through the University of Tasmania (using the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, IMAS, data repository), which relies on the IMOS information infrastructure, or the eAtlas data repository (managed by the Australian Institute of Marine Science). IMAS and eAtlas will provide tools and workflows to support publication of Hub data.
The Hub will facilitate projects to ensure they follow the FAIR principles to open data of being findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable under licences that allow reuse. When working with Indigenous data these guidelines require the complementary use of the Global Indigenous Data Alliance’s CARE principles for Indigenous data governance of collective benefit, authority to control, responsibility and ethics. This will increase the capacity of the program to support a more collaborative, informed approach to managing Australia’s environment.
The NESP Marine and Coastal Hub, through its origins in the previous NESP Marine Biodiversity and Tropical Water Quality Hubs, bring a broad and knowledgeable data management team to establish and build on existing principles, strategies, guidelines and infrastructure for both the Hub and as a key participant in the broader marine science community.
