Data from the nodes are streamed continuously to the onshore infrastructure through fiber optic subsea cables. The data services follow best practice for findability, accessibility, interoperability and reproducibility. The discoverability of metadata are available through the Norwegian Marine Data Centre.
There are several ways to access the LoVe Ocean data:
The LoVe Ocean Data Portal
The LoVe Ocean Data Portal is based on the Enlighten framework developed by NORCE. Enlighten is a web application for data retrieval and interactive visual analysis. The portal provides effective visualization of multidimensional data sets with interactive filtering of data through “brushing and linking”.
An updated version is under development and a link will made available here.
The data is accessible through standard file transfer protocols (ftp) and open data protocol (OPeNDAP), depending on the datatype. The sensor data that follows the SeaDataNet definitions are exposed through OPeNDAP, whereas data that does not have a defined standard are exposed in the native format through ftp, including echosounder data, hydrophone data and images. The data are organized by node and sensor id, and a dynamic list of sensor ids and data types is provided.
NMDC landing pages for Nodes 1, 4 and 7 with links to OPeNDAP test server are available at:
Phase 1 web site and data portal
A web site and data portal was established during phase 1 of LoVe Ocean, where Node 1 data are visualized and available for download. This site is still accessible at https://love.equinor.com/. Node 1 data will also be available through this website in the near future.
