Through our decades of hydrological and ecological practices and the activities on the waterways of the German Federal a valuable inventory of hydrological information has emerged in the stuck our experience and knowledge base. Almost all environmental information have a direct or indirect spatial reference. This inventory of spatial data continues to grow. He is both the basis and results of our scientific work. With GGInA, the hydrological Geographical Information and Analysis System of BfG, you can research yourself in this inventory. Much of the information and data is accessed directly on the Metadata Catalog Search and specialist applications. The Geoportal also opens up databases of our partners in the transport and environment. At the same selected data can also be integrated into other environmental portals.
Open Government Data Portal of Tamil Nadu is a platform (designed by the National Informatics Centre), for Open Data initiative of the Government of Tamil Nadu. The portal is intended to publish datasets collected by the Tamil Nadu Government for public uses in different perspective. It has been created under Software as A Service (SaaS) model of Open Government Data (OGD) and publishes dataset in open formats like CSV, XLS, ODS/OTS, XML, RDF, KML, GML, etc. This data portal has following modules, namely (a) Data Management System (DMS) for contributing data catalogs by various state government agencies for making those available on the front end website after a due approval process through a defined workflow; (b) Content Management System (CMS) for managing and updating various functionalities and content types; (c) Visitor Relationship Management (VRM) for collating and disseminating viewer feedback on various data catalogs; and (d) Communities module for community users to interact and share their views and common interests with others. It includes different types of datasets generated both in geospatial and non-spatial data classified as shareable data and non-shareable data. Geospatial data consists primarily of satellite data, maps, etc.; and non-spatial data derived from national accounts statistics, price index, census and surveys produced by a statistical mechanism. It follows the principle of data sharing and accessibility via Openness, Flexibility, Transparency, Quality, Security and Machine-readable.
SeaBASS, the publicly shared archive of in situ oceanographic and atmospheric data maintained by the NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG). High quality in situ measurements are prerequisite for satellite data product validation, algorithm development, and many climate-related inquiries. As such, the NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) maintains a local repository of in situ oceanographic and atmospheric data to support their regular scientific analyses. The SeaWiFS Project originally developed this system, SeaBASS, to catalog radiometric and phytoplankton pigment data used their calibration and validation activities. To facilitate the assembly of a global data set, SeaBASS was expanded with oceanographic and atmospheric data collected by participants in the SIMBIOS Program, under NASA Research Announcements NRA-96 and NRA-99, which has aided considerably in minimizing spatial bias and maximizing data acquisition rates. Archived data include measurements of apparent and inherent optical properties, phytoplankton pigment concentrations, and other related oceanographic and atmospheric data, such as water temperature, salinity, stimulated fluorescence, and aerosol optical thickness. Data are collected using a number of different instrument packages, such as profilers, buoys, and hand-held instruments, and manufacturers on a variety of platforms, including ships and moorings.

The UTM Data Service is responsible for managing spatial data acquired during oceanographic cruises. The purpose is, on the one hand, to disseminate which data exist and where, how and when they have been acquired and on the other hand, to provide access to as much of the interoperable data as possible so that they can be used and reused. For this purpose, the UTM has a Spatial Data Infrastructure at a national level that consists, on the one hand, of a Oceanographic Cruises Catalog that includes more than 500 cruises carried out since 1991 -with links to documentation associated to the cruise, navigation maps and datasets- and, on the other hand, a Geoportal that collects information from the datasets and allows you to create maps from different data layers. At a international level, the UTM is a National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) of the Distributed European Marine Data Infrastructure SeaDataNet, to which the UTM provides metadata published in the Cruise Summary Report Catalog and in the data catalog Common Data Index, as well as public data to be shared.
