3.8 North West Marine Research InventoryGo back to program
About the project
This project, formulated by the Western Australian Marine Science Institution (WAMSI), developed a metadatabase (the North West Marine Research Inventory – NWMRI) of completed, current and planned marine and coastal research in State and Commonwealth waters of Western Australia between Kalbarri to the Northern Territory border (i.e. the North-west Marine Region – NWMR).
The project began in late 2007 and was completed in July 2008, with the delivery of the NWMRI metadatabase to the hub of advanced computing in WA, iVEC.
Facilitating a strategic and collaborative approach toward future marine research, planning and management in the NWMR.
- Metadata Entry and Search Tool (MEST)
- Topic category coding
The NWMRI Project captured information on over 700 research projects related to the marine environment in the North West Marine Region. This extensive catalogue, in association with the work captured through other WAMSI tasks, will hopefully provide the critical mass necessary to see the NWMRI being adopted by the wider community.
