International Programs

ISDM acts as the designated Canadian focal point for international oceanographic data exchange and expertise in oceanographic data management.  Participation by ISDM allows Canada to not only share its data, but also to obtain copies of data collected by member countries for use by Canadian researchers and engineers.  For some databases the data obtained by exchange is equal or greater than that collected by Canadian sources, and is of course very inexpensive in comparison to collect.
