Data Center Description
The goal of the Marine Metadata Interoperability (MMI) project is to support collaborative research in the marine science domain, by simplifying the incredibly complex world of metadata into specific, straightforward guidance. MMI encourages scientists and data managers at all levels to apply good metadata practices from the start of a project, by providing the best guidance and resources for data management, and developing advanced metadata tools and services needed by the community.
MMI can help make it easier for you to find, access, and use data sets from outside your own agency or institution, and to document, publish, and distribute your data. Our information starts at the most basic, and includes the most advanced. If you have a question, please ask us, so we can tell you and other members of the community.
MMI is a community-supported, collaborative effort. If you are not already a member, please consider joining us and contributing to our web site, our new Tools DIVE, or other working groups. This is an exciting time to be working on interoperable data systems, and with your participation MMI is moving community practices forward in standards, tools, and best practices.
