The Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN) is an interoperable online network of marine and climate data resources. The Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) and the 6 Australian Commonwealth agencies form the core of the AODN.
The marine data collections are made freely available to the public. Data covers a wide range of parameters in different ocean environments collected from ocean-going ships, autonomous vehicles, moorings and other platforms. The scope of observations, geographically spanning ocean to coast, and across disciplines (physical, biogeochemical, biological), provides a challenge to deliver an intuitive easy-to-use robust information infrastructure enabling users to efficiently obtain the data they need.
The AODN Portal is a single access point for marine data published by AODN contributors.The Portal incorporates a catalogue of metadata, a search interface driven by facets utilising controlled vocabulary terms, and a map interface that can be used to interact with AODN datasets and offers data download in a number of formats.
