EDMERP landing page

EDMERP covers marine research projects for a wide range of disciplines including marine meteorology; physical, chemical and biological oceanography; sedimentology; marine biology and fisheries; environmental quality; coastal and estuarine studies; marine geology and geophysics etc. Research projects are described as metadata factsheets with their most relevant aspects. The primary objective is to support users in identifying interesting research activities and in connecting them to involved research managers and organisations across Europe. Currently, EDMERP describes around 3.000 research projects from organisations across Europe.

EDMERP offers two interfaces, a regular HTML interface for "human users" and a SPARQL Endpoint for machine applications.

The SPARQL endpoint follows the W3C rules and allows data to be harvested and indexed by machines applications like search engines. On the SPARQL endpoints webpage you will find the references to documentation how to use it.
