Ocean ecosystems are in decline, yet we also have more ocean data, and more data portals, than ever before. To make effective decisions regarding ocean management, especially in the face of global environmental change, we need to make the best use possible of these data. Yet many data are not shared, are hard to find, and cannot be effectively accessed. We identify three classes of challenges to data sharing and use: uploading, aggregating, and navigating. While tremendous advances have… 
Simons Collaborative Marine Atlas Project (Simons CMAP): an open-source portal to share, visualize and analyze ocean data
A unified architecture that allows numerical model outputs, satellite products, and field observations to be readily shared, mined, and integrated regardless of data set size or resolution is described.
Simons Collaborative Marine Atlas Project (Simons CMAP): An open‐source portal to share, visualize, and analyze ocean data
Simons Collaborative Marine Atlas Project (Simons CMAP) is an open‐source data portal that interconnects large, complex, and diverse public data sets currently dispersed in different formats across
Establishing the Foundation for the Global Observing System for Marine Life
Maintaining healthy, productive ecosystems in the face of pervasive and accelerating human impacts including climate change requires globally coordinated and sustained observations of marine
A contemporary baseline record of the world’s coral reefs
A baseline dataset, covering 1300 km of tropical coral reef habitats globally, and comprised of over one million geo-referenced, high-resolution photo-quadrats analysed using artificial intelligence to automatically estimate the proportional cover of benthic components, offers a significant contribution towards a sound baseline for advancing understanding of coral reef ecology.
Poleward bound: adapting to climate-driven species redistribution
This work describes key drivers related to climate-driven species redistributions that are likely to have a high impact and influence on whether a sustainable future is achievable by 2030 and synthesises examples of such actions as the basis of a strategic approach to tackle this global-scale challenge.
Science for Good Environmental Status: A European Joint Action to Support Marine Policy
This paper illustrates and discusses a few crucial aspects of endeavors to implement the MSFD specifically implied in the definition of the metrics for the 11 descriptors and GES in its complexity, as well as improving the strategy governing its implementation.
Seascape ecology: identifying research priorities for an emerging ocean sustainability science
Seascape ecology, the marine-centric counterpart to landscape ecology, is rapidly emerging as an interdisciplinary and spatially explicit ecological science with relevance to marine management,
Reef Cover: a coral reef classification to guide global habitat mapping from remote sensing
Reefer Cover, a new coral reef geomorphic zone classification, developed to support global-scale coral reef habitat mapping in a transparent and version-based framework, which maximises the trade-off between applicability at global scales, and relevance and accuracy at local scales.
Geographical Range Extension of the Spotfin burrfish, Chilomycterus reticulatus (L. 1758), in the Canary Islands: A Response to Ocean Warming?
In recent decades, numerous marine species have changed their distribution ranges due to ocean warming. The Spotfin burrfish, Chilomycterus reticulatus, is a reef fish with a global distribution


Challenges and Opportunities of Open Data in Ecology
The establishment of well-curated, federated data repositories will provide a means to preserve data while promoting attribution and acknowledgement of its use.
Ecological data sharing
Big data from small data: data-sharing in the 'long tail' of neuroscience
This commentary considers the issue of sharing of the richly diverse and heterogeneous small data sets produced by individual neuroscientists, so-called long-tail data, and provides use cases in which aggregating and mining diverse long- tail data convert numerous small data sources into big data for improved knowledge about neuroscience-related disorders.
Challenges to complete and useful data sharing
Issues which impede the use of data even when sharing should be possible are discussed and can be avoided by anticipating the possibility of sharing any clinical data and pre-emptively removing or addressing restrictions that limit complete sharing.
Big data and the future of ecology
The need for sound ecological science has escalated alongside the rise of the information age and “big data” across all sectors of society. Big data generally refer to massive volumes of data not
Data Sharing by Scientists: Practices and Perceptions
Large scale programs, such as the NSF-sponsored DataNET will both bring attention and resources to the issue and make it easier for scientists to apply sound data management principles.
Changes in Data Sharing and Data Reuse Practices and Perceptions among Scientists Worldwide
Results point to increased acceptance of and willingness to engage in data sharing, as well as an increase in actual data sharing behaviors, while an examination of subject disciplines shows that the constraints and enablers of data sharing and reuse manifest differently across disciplines.
Promoting Access to Public Research Data for Scientific, Economic, and Social Development
The authors present their research findings, based closely on their report to OECD, on key issues in data access, as well as operating principles and management aspects necessary to successful data access regimes.
Motivating Online Publication of Data
Online data publication systems also need to develop mechanisms for data citation and indices of data access comparable to those for citation systems in print journals.
A Census of Marine Biodiversity Knowledge, Resources, and Future Challenges
A global review of gaps in marine biodiversity knowledge and resources is overdue because society and many scientists believe the authors have discovered most species, or that doing so is out of fashion except when new technologies are employed.
