Marine Data Value Chain Survey

The OECD has teamed up with the UK's Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) IOC/UNESCO to improve understanding of the use of marine data made publicly available through specialised data archive/management centres.

The questionnaire you are about to answer has three related objectives:
  • Update current understanding of the user communities of public marine data archive/management centres
  • Explore the pathways through which public marine data are used and transformed into actionable information
  • Lay the foundations for future work in measuring the value of marine data by creating stylised depictions of the use of the data

While the coronavirus pandemic is having extraordinary impacts on the way people and organisations operate throughout the world, we believe the importance of marine data should continue to be highlighted through studies such as this. Your contribution will help inform future ocean policies in the run-up to the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030. We hope our analysis of the role of public marine data in society will be useful to you, data archive/management centres and all relevant communities.

Thank you very much in advance for taking the time to complete this questionnaire, which should take you less than ten minutes.
