For many data types, IMOS uses the netCDF (network Common Data Form) system, a set of software libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data.
The IMOS netCDF Convention describe the netCDF format and the format of filenames that will be used to distribute IMOS data.
Other data management, handling, processing and data format guides are available –
The AODN Maintains a list of useful links to organisations and/or websites that can provide more information specific to data tools, national/international collaborators or related infrastructure.
