Connecting Data Producers with Data Users

The West Coast Ocean Data Portal Network is dedicated to increasing communication between state and federal agencies, tribes, universities, NGOs, and industry to leverage resources for new data collection, develop data best management practices, conduct trainings, and ensure compatibility of regional datasets.

The West Coast Ocean Data Portal Network is comprised of two working groups: a Coordination Team and a Development Team. Each provides guidance on the Portal activities and ensures we adopt current standards and compatible technologies and communicate our mission and goals effectively. New participants are welcome! To participate, please contact us.

Our Knowledge Base includes communication tools for data producers and users and data sharing best practices. To learn more or participate in our Network, please contact us.
