ADIwg (Alaska Data Integration Working Group)

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners


The ADIwg metadata standard was formed to examine and address technical barriers in order to efficiently integrate and share data within and among participating organizations.


ADIwg evolved from, and supports the common interests of, the North Slope Science Initiative Oversight Group (NSSI), Alaska Ocean Observing System Board (AOOS), the Arctic Research Mapping Application (ARMAP), North Pacific Research Board (NPRB), the Alaska Climate Change Executive Roundtable (ACCER), and their member agencies; as well as numerous federal agencies.


Make exploring and coordinating project and data metadata, as well as exchanging data across all participating organizations, seamless through the adoption of an interagency standard and protocol.


Version 1 of the ADIwg Project Metadata Standard has been completed. However, work is currently ongoing on Version 2.
