KNO3: Make Arctic data accessible and reusable – roadmap to open and cost effective data management policy

Date: Wednesday October 10, 2018

Location: Kero, Lappia Hall

Time: 10:30-12:00

Understanding and responding to Arctic changes and challenges requires accessible and reliable data to facilitate monitoring, research, management and decision making. Large amounts of important data is being processed into Arctic Council reports and for other purposes, but afterwards this data is often very difficult and costly to find and access in order for it to be reused. Existing data infrastructures are inefficient and, if modernized, could promote data sharing and be more cost effective.

Chairs: Peter Pouplier, Arctic SDI; Tom Barry, CAFF Secretariat

Format: Series of presentations followed by discussion

Presentations:

  • Introduction to the reasons behind information management best practices, based on open international standards, to build communities of practice to share existing and new data: Peter Pouplier, Arctic SDI / Danish Agency of Data Supply and Efficiency and Fredrik Persäter/ Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority pdf
  • Data presentation and sharing in practice – the Arctic Biodiversity Data Service (ABDS): Kári Fannar Lárusson, CAFF Secretariat pdf
  • Sharing Arctic species occurrence data through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) for use in research and policy: Tim Hirsch, Global Biodiversity Information Facility pdf
  • Readily available Arctic data, tools and services for data sharing supporting the Arctic Scientific community and the work of Arctic Council– the Arctic SDI Basemap, services and tools in the Arctic: Jani Kylmääho, Arctic SDI / National Land Survey of Finland pdf
  • User needs assessment – Arctic Marine data as an example: Gerhard Heggebø, Arctic SDI / Norwegian Mapping Authority pdf
  • How to build an information management policy promoting open data policies for sharing data: Peter Pouplier, Arctic SDI / Danish Agency of Data Supply and Efficiency and Fredrik Persäter/ Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority pdf

 


Abstracts:

Introduction to the reasons behind information management best practices, based on open international standards, to build communities of practice to share existing and new data

Peter Pouplier, Arctic SDI / Danish Agency of Data Supply and Efficiency and Fredrik Persäter/ Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority

The presentation gives an introduction to information management best practices and how data sharing is supported by the development of an Arctic spatial data infrastructure based on international standards

 

Data presentation and sharing in practice – the Arctic Biodiversity Data Service (ABDS)

Kári Fannar Lárusson, CAFF Secretariat; Jani Kylmääho, National Land Survey of Finland; Tom Barry, CAFF Secretariat

Presentation of data sharing examples developed in cooperation between CAFF and Arctic SDI.

 

Readily available Arctic data, tools and services for data sharing supporting the Arctic Scientific community and the work of Arctic Council– the Arctic SDI Basemap, services and tools in the Arctic

Jani Kylmääho, Arctic SDI / National Land Survey of Finland; Fredrik Persäter, Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority

Presentation of readily available data, tools and services for data sharing supporting the Arctic scientific community and the work of Arctic Council– the Arctic SDI Basemap, services and tools in the Arctic SDI Geoportal provided by the National Mapping Agencies of the eight Arctic Countries.

 

User needs assessment – Arctic Marine data as an example

Gerhard Heggebø, Arctic SDI / Norwegian Mapping Authority; Peter Pouplier, Danish Agency of Datasupply and Efficiency

Financed by the Norwegian program Arctic 2030 the Norwegian Mapping Authority have conducted a user needs assessment on Arctic marine data. The results and the cooperation between Arctic SDI and the Arctic Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure Working Group (ARMSDIWG) will be presented.

 

How to build an information management policy promoting open data policies for sharing data

Peter Pouplier, Arctic SDI / Danish Agency of Data Supply and Efficiency and Fredrik Persäter/ Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority

Presentation of recommendations, processes and elements on how to build an Arctic information management policy that supports data sharing and reuse.
