The Integrated Marine Data and Information System (iMarDIS) is the data management and information component of SEACAMS2. This is a European Regional Development Fund program to develop commercial applications from research and innovation in marine renewable energy (MRE).
This project developed the iMarDIS Portal - a single point of access to data and associated metadata derived from the collaborative research carried out between MRE industries and Bangor University at Marine Centre Wales. It is a single page application (SPA) that offers a pleasant and responsive user interface on top of the wide range of data services provided by the iMarDIS Web API.
From the portal, it is straightforward to search for datasets using keywords, an intuitive query builder and geographic filtering via the map. You can visualise the results on the map, view detailed metadata and create dynamic charts to help assess the suitability of a dataset for purpose. Both raw and derived datasets can be directly downloaded in the browser. The system also supports multiple languages and includes notifications, comprehensive help, articles, and a feedback mechanism.
