ICH Metadata Web Portal Goes Live (5-3-2004)

The Integrated Coastal Hydrography (ICH) project has created a web based portal which allows users to search for information (in the form of metadata – data about data) on existing and planned coastal surveys. Users can browse the metadata for a number of different data types, e.g. Bathymetric and topographic surveys. The user can also undertake text and graphical searches of the metadata. The mapping interface will have standard GIS tools and some defined and bespoke searches of the underlying database. Once the required metadata of interest has been identified, the results of the search can be added to an... (read more)
