The Ocean Data Platform (ODP) is an open and collaborative platform that harnesses the power of data liberation and contextualization for the people
The Ocean Data Platform is being developed by the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution for the Ocean, C4IR Ocean.
C4IR Ocean combines the strength of Norway’s history of responsible ocean management and the industrial experience and agility of Aker with the World Economic Forum and Friends of Ocean Action’s leadership as international entities for public-private cooperation to develop ocean governance frameworks.
Connecting data, people and technology for a healthy and productive ocean.
To begin the journey, IODE’s World Ocean Database is mirrored in the ODP including, for example, the world’s largest collection of ocean profile-plankton data from 220,000 research cruises since 1890, 1.95 billion temperature profiles and 1.13 billion salinity profiles. More data to come!
Make ocean data more readily available for decision making.
Explore and analyze ocean data with our open source software development kits.
Use interactive tools, APIs, and software development kits to visualize, find, and extract the data you need.
Access solutions in the data store and create your own visualisations to aid your research, make informed decisions.
Upload your own data; get credit for your contributions; create an impact
To achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda, and in particular SDG14's drive for a healthy Ocean, it is imperative that we increase quantitative scientific knowledge and marine research capacity.
