Marine Environmental Data Inventory (MEDI)

Author(s) Greg Reed
Summary The Marine Environmental Data Inventory (MEDI) is a catalogue system for marine datasets within the framework of the IOC's International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) programme. The development of MEDI was recommended in 1971 by the Joint Task Team on Interdisciplinary and Inter-organizational Data and Information Management and Referral (IMAR). The Sixteenth Session of the IODE Committee recommended (Recommendation IODE-XVI.1) MEDI becomes a permanent program of IODE. A Steering Group was established tasked with the responsibility for the further development and enhancement of the MEDI software tool, in response to user feedback and additional requirements. The MEDI metadata directory is a global inventory of data holdings held in the IOC Member States and agencies.
