The AODN was formed through a collaboration between six Australian Commonwealth Agencies with primary responsibility for marine data. Since it's inception, the AODN has grown to encompass organisations and individual members of the Australian, New Zealand and Pacific marine research community.

AODN Technical Advisory Group

The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) provides a forum for developing data management and data publishing standards for the Australian marine community. It provides technical advice to the Australian Ocean Data Network and to organisations wishing to publish marine data. Part of the TAG role is to identify areas for development and to establish Working Groups to pursue the development. Currently there are 4 Working Groups:

  • Information Modelling
  • Vocabularies
  • Use cases
  • Governance of the Marine Community Profile
