Welcome to the Marine Metadata Interoperability Project

"Promoting the exchange, integration and use of marine data through enhanced data publishing, discovery, documentation and accessibility."

Our goal is to support collaborative research in the marine science domain, by simplifying the incredibly complex world of metadata into specific, straightforward guidance. MMI encourages scientists and data managers at all levels to apply good metadata practices from the start of a project, by providing the best guidance and resources for data management, and developing advanced metadata tools and services needed by the community.

MMI can help make it easier for you to find, access, and use data sets from outside your own agency or institution, and to document, publish, and distribute your data. Our guidance covers everything from the basics to advanced topics.

MMI is a community-supported, collaborative effort. If you are not already a member, please consider joining us and contributing to our work. With your input and help MMI moves community practices forward in standards, tools, and best practices.
