|Task 4.1 Data collection and processing|
|Task 4.2 Database management|
|Task 4.3 Data sharing|
|Task 4.4 Data visualisation|
This task aims at standardising database management in the decentralised repositories of the different partners within the consortium to ensure harmonisation of data formats, adequate storage and version control, backups and synchronisation of data. Harmonisation of data formats will disclose data for a multitude of applications, including e.g. the database approach to modelling (DATM; Mooij et al. 2014). To this end this task will:
- Develop guidelines describing a standardised environment for decentralised database management
- Develop a controlled vocabulary for data descriptors (metadata). Consistent descriptors of the data will enhance data deployment during and beyond the proposed AQUACOSM project.
