From data to decision: an overview of CMRE's information supply chain
Proper data curation is a prerequisite for the creation of long-lasting value from scientific datasets and for the generation of authoritative data-driven decision support tools. Availability of detailed information on instruments calibration and other useful metadata are essential for effective data use and re-use. High quality and standardized metadata, in turn, allows effective data discovery through web-based data catalogues, linking interoperable data repositories and paving the way to federated data infrastructures on a global scale, to ensure that data are made available to scientists, decision makers and automated computing workflows. This paper presents the approach undertaken by the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) to provide a ?common enterprise bus? in which scientific data and added-value products are the principal currency.
