Task 4.2 "Methods linking data at the point of sampling & collection"
The task will further lead technological developments to consistently track samples and contextual data to link multidisciplinary data from the point of collection. Lead technological developments to track samples using online databases synchronised with offline field/lab applications (spreadsheets) that are compatible with data collection across the fields encompassed in EuroMarine, linking multidisciplinary data from the point of collection using for example geo-references and supporting structured storage and electronic exchange, thus reducing the need for retrospective text and data mining. This meeting will bring together a group of experts in Data Aquisition and Sampling as well as Data Exchange and Standardisation. The goal is to develop a short position paper that describes how data need to be gathered to allow maximum interoperability for post-processing.
