25 - 29 October 2021
Organizer & Staff
Attendance by application.
The International Oceanographic Data Exchange (IODE) of IOC-UNESCO - together with regional partners across the globe - is developing an inclusive Ocean Data and Information System (ODIS) to allow digital stakeholders to reliably share and discover key ocean data. ODIS is built by its participants: anyone with data to share can become a node in the ODIS network. During this course, participants will be trained in how to link their systems into ODIS and to make them a more visible and actionable part of the ocean’s digital ecosystem.
The aims of the course are to:
- Equip participants with a conceptual understanding of what ODIS is, why it has been created, and how it works
- Equip participants with conceptual and practical understandings of the technical components of ODIS, including its use of schema.org patterns and web-based publishing and harvesting
- Provide participants with the tools they need to describe their (meta)data and publish it
The expected learning outcomes are:
- An understanding of the Ocean InfoHub project
- An understanding of the Ocean Data and Information System
- An understanding of how to incorporate ODIS schema.org patterns into existing online databases or websites.
- High-level concepts of OIH/ODIS
- General introduction to the use of schema.org and linked open data
- ODIS schema.org patterns
- Demos of patterns (One video per pattern, walking through filling them in with correct data (implementation agnostic)
- Setting up the standard publishing/contribution environment
- Harvesting patterns in JSON/RDF
- Querying harvested material
The target audience should have an understanding of:
- Working understanding of JSON and the HTML Document Object Model
- How to configure extensions to their web framework (DKAN, CKAN, geonetwork or others), if a framework is being used.
