Marine Biological Data Mobilization Workshop to be held virtually on 14 and 15 March 2022.

This workshop is intended to be a hands-on, virtual workshop focused on mobilizing marine biological observation datasets to the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS) by helping data providers standardize their data using Darwin Core including species observations from any type of sampling methodologies (e.g. visual surveys, net tows, microscopy, fish trawls, imaging, `omics, acoustics, telemetry).

  • Must have some R or Python experience.
  • Must have a basic knowledge of Github.
  • Participants must have RStudio or Python software installed on their computer.

This workshop is jointly hosted by CIOOS, IOOS, MBON, OBIS-USA, and OTN and provides a Contribution to the UN Decade on Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the Marine Life 2030 Decade Action. Please note, you do not need to be registered for Ocean Sciences to attend this workshop.

Formal daily activities will take place both days from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm ET.
