Entry ID: ioce_oceanteacher
[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The Ocean Teacher web site's objective is to provide training
tools for Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange. These
tools are used during IODE Training Courses but can, to some
extent, also be used for self training and continuous
professional development.

The International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange
(IODE) Resource Kit is a comprehensive self-training and
resource tool for newly established Oceanographic Data Centres,
designed to assist managers and staff members to acquire the
skills to set up and run IODE centres. It contains a range of
marine data-management and information-management materials,
including software, quality control and analysis strategies,
training manuals, and relevant IOC documents. The Kit provides
a broad spectrum of background information on global data and
information archiving activities, specifications for data
storage in standard formats, and the software tools to perform
many quality-control, subsetting, and analysis procedures. The
Kit is accompanied by Manuals and regional datasets used in
training workshops.

The Ocean Data Management Training Manual for the IOC/IODE
Resource Kit is available in two volumes:

Course 1 Basic introduction to marine data management, PC
skills, software and data formats. Course 2 Intermediate
exercises with Course 1 topics; development of national data
archives; data integration. In addition, special datasets
(available only over the Internet) have been prepared for
various training classes, as follows:

IOCINCWIO Regional Data Collection
IOCEA Regional Data Collection
Red Sea Data Collection
ODINCARSA Regional Data Collection
Africa Update (WOD01) Data Collection

The Marine Information Management Training Manual for the
IOC/IODE Resource Kit is available in two volumes: Course
1. Basic introduction to marine information management,
information concepts; information software and technology and
the organisation of the collection using a defined integrated
library management system. Course 2. Building on Course
1. Advanced applications of I.L.M.S; creation of research
support services and information seeking and retrieval
particularly in the electronic environment.
