SIMOcean, co-funded by the EEA Grants Programme, is integrated in the initiative of the Portuguese Government to develop a set of coordinated systems providing access to national marine data. Several datasets, currently scattered among different departments of the Portuguese Meteorological (IPMA) and the Navy's Hydrographic (IH) Institutes, will be brought together in a Open Data system to be exploited by three flagship value added services.
The draft agenda is available here.
