Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO020: A Unified Data Format for Marine Survey Data: The Key to Efficient Data Management in the Cloud

Natalia Bueno Alonso, Senior Marketing Manager ,


The entire workflow to plan, construct, operate, and decommission an offshore wind farm is complex and spans over a lengthy period. Here, the focus is on data that is acquired during the planning and construction phase. However, this data can also be valuable for later stages during operations and decommissions and hence efficient data management is crucial over the full lifecycle of an asset. For site investigations and environmental measurements marine surveys are conducted and the data are written to digital files for further processing, sharing, analysis and long-term storage. The data is saved using specific file formats, which could be proprietary or open source. The file formats also depend on the recording system, acquisition type, and sensor that is used for the survey. As there is no unique data format standard for marine surveys, the entire data set consists of heterogeneous files. Therefore, the handling of these data sets is demanding as it often requires a set of different software tools to display and analyze the data. In addition, the amount of data that is acquired is steadily increasing which makes the handling even more complex. A unified and open-source data format for the marine survey data would make the management, sharing, analysis and storage of data more efficient. Especially for cloud storages and applications a suited data format is important as many of the current data formats are not optimized for the cloud environment.
