The Alaska Data Integration working group (ADIwg) was formed to examine and address the technical barriers to efficiently integrate and share data within and among participating organizations. The Alaska Ocean Observing System was one of its founding members in 2009, participating in both the policy group and the technical group. AOOS is joined by other member organizations including the North Slope Science Initiative, North Pacific Research Board, Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative, and numerous federal agencies.
ADIwg began with the objective of developing standardized protocols for managing and exchange metadata about research projects. It is now focusing its efforts on standardization of metadata for data.
