SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
In parallel, data management policies were defined by QO and ISMER to better support data archiving and dissemination. A user friendly web portal was also developped in collaboration with the MLI and the St. Lawrence Global Observatory (SLGO) in order to provide easy data access to the scientific community, government officials, non-governmental organisations and to the general public. Currently, the ISMER-EDMS is mostly used to archive hydrographic data:
While these archived data collections are associated with fixed instruments it is also possible to integrate data collected from towed or onboard instruments. EDMS's data model is flexible enough to allow archiving of any environemental data type : plankton counts, chemical analysis results, etc.
