Database and Data list
Texas Coast Map
will bring together extensive, complementary and well-maintained online information systems for marine science, oceanographic and related data currently available from the Gulf of Mexico. This information system, called the Texas OneGulf Knowledge Base (TOKB), will be the most powerful data and information system dedicated to the Gulf ever assembled.
Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System Regional Association
data management system currently ingests more than 1,800 data streams at hourly intervals or less, from federal and non-federal sources. GCOOS-RA includes 125 member organizations across the Gulf and maintains some 5,000 sensors providing near real-time coastal and oceanographic data on biophysical phenomenon. The GCOOS-RA collection of historical oceanographic records goes back to the early 1900s and GCOOS-RA updates this collection with data in near real-time from present day ocean surveys.
Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Information and Data Cooperative
has collated and documented close to 800 datasets or ~25 terabyte of data, already making it the largest data aggregation and distribution system dedicated to Gulf research ever assembled. GRIIDC is the data management entity responsible for acquiring, cataloging, and curating the full-body of data derived from the 10-year $500 million research program (Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative, GoMRI) that began a few days after the start of the Deepwater Horizon event.
Gulf of Mexico Alliance
GOMAportal.org is a metadata catalog and data repository for Gulf of Mexico related geospatial datasets. Funded by the Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA), GOMAportal.org houses the results of a multi-year project by the GOMA Ecosystems Integration and Assessment (EIA) Priority Issue Team (PIT) to improve the state metadata for geospatial datasets for the Gulf of Mexico.
This project was paid for in part with federal funding from the Department of the Treasury through the State of Texas under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act).
