Marine Data Management Awareness Course; 16th October 2018, London

Data is expensive to collect and needs to be treated as an extremely valuable corporate resource. However, history shows that a majority of organisations rarely, if ever, manage it effectively.

With data volumes growing exponentially each year, 'Big Data' is now presenting a real challenge and the need to consider 'data-centric' operational processes and workflows has never been greater.

This course shows how effective data management can improve your organisation's efficiency in data acquisition, storage and analysis. It will ensure you understand data use with respect to corporate risk, re-use, audit and traceability whilst at the same time minimising costs.

Course Highlights and Learning include:

* Understanding why data management is important
* How to get started with data management
* An overview of the data life-cycle
* Understanding standards and why they matter
* The importance of metadata
* Controlled vocabularies and glossaries
* Coordinate Reference Systems - how can real-world geospatial data be accurately represented in different ways
* The importance of data quality
* How data is published and what do we need to take into consideration when sharing and reusing it
* Interactive session based on real data challenges that you have brought to the session and find solutions to overcome them.

The event is being hosted by IMarEST and will take place on Tuesday 16th October 2018, 9.30-17.00 at 1 Birdcage Walk, London.
