eMarine Information Infrastructure
Welcome to eMII!
Your main access to IMOS data is through the IMOS Ocean Portal.
Marine data and information are the main products of IMOS, and data management is therefore a central element to the project's success. eMII provides a single integrative framework for data and information management that allows discovery and access of the data by scientists, managers and the public.
The portal's search functionality is delivered by GeoNetwork, which is a Java based metadata catalog for geospatial data. eMII is an active member of the GeoNetwork opensource community. The metadata records conform to the ISO19115 Marine Community Profile. The metadata records also define the services that the portal uses to deliver data requested by the user. IMOS non-gridded data is served by OGC WFS servers. Gridded data is served by the GoGoDuck.
The help forum is based on Drupal, which is a popular opensource content management system.
There are separate instances of the portal application for IMOS, the AODN, and state regional views. Only the IMOS instance uses the latest version of the AODN portal (version 4). The other instances use the much older version 2.
Map layers are delivered via servers supporting the OGC WMS standard.
