Hey all, thanks to those who were able to join the call last week. We were able to discuss resources for our Data Development project and provide some definitions around “Authoritative Data” for the West Coast Ocean Data Portal.
Data Development Project – We discussed the data priorities that will be addressed through upcoming funded work (Proposal Solicitation out now!) Data priorities include regional products related to closed and restricted areas, kelp extent and distribution, and littoral cells.
Authoritative Data – we settled on a draft definition of authoritative data/providers to help “clean” up our data catalog. Please review the definition below and let me know if you have additional thoughts or comments.
Where possible, data is original to publishing entity
Data has undergone thorough review via state/federal process
