TUTORIALS for data services


 OSIS-Kiel (Ocean Science Information System)


OSIS (Ocean Science Information System) allows scientists to upload and share data files in the context of expeditions, numerical models or experiments with allowance for any file format and content structure. So OSIS serves detailed informations, data and references to publications of expeditions at sea and on land, as well as models of the institute projects.


 PANGAEA Data Submission          


PANGAEA - Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science is a publisher and library for georeferenced data from earth system research. Observational and analytical data files are archived with a description (metadata) in a relational database. Each data set includes a bibliographic citation and is persistently identified using a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). Pangaea offers service and curation for the data output of projects, institutes and individual scientists. Data can be published as an independent "publication" or as a supplement related to an article. Data are in Open Access and are placed under a Creative Commons license.Pangaea- is hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz-Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), Bremerhaven and the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM), Bremen, Germany."

PANGAEA is a member of the ICSU World Data System.


 Media Server-ProxSys


The media server is a web based system for the management and dissemination of media files. It is based on the ProxSys Software and consists of three components: the main server and media storage, a rendering server for preview generation and a server for video conversion based on EPISODE Software. The media server is a long-term storage for georeferenced videos and photographs with metadata description. ProxSys provides access to photographs and videos.


 DSHIP land system

Manual v.2 and Manual v.3

Nautical and scientific data on various research vessels are systematically collected, processed and archived with the data management system DAVIS-SHIP (DSHIP).

The archived files of the research vessels are transferred to the DSHIP land system and these data are accessable through a web inferface. DSHIP contains tracks, stations and underway measurements from cruises of German research vessels.

For each research vessel there is a corresponding link that leads to the data extraction, to extracted data and to documentation. For the RV SONNE data is available at GEOMAR from the year 2005 to 2014 only. Data from 2015 on are available at the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency in Hamburg.

There are archive systems for version 2 and version 3 for the research vessels. They differ in the design of the web-based user interface but provide the same functionalities.
