The objective of this database is to provide information on all topics relevant to marine sciences - be it people with their expertise, institutions and their mandate, publications,... Different types of 'knowledge items' correspond to different modules in the system, each with their own entry into the database (...). Information relevant to marine sciences in the Flanders, or to the southern part of the North Sea, is actively pursued. (...) Information from further afield is also stored, and users are welcome to comment, but the VMDC will not actively go and look for this information.Different search screens defined at this moment are: Person / Institute / Publication / Journal / Conference / Project / Dataset. ...

The Biocean database was designed to collate the extremely large volume of data collected from different deep-sea ecosystem studies conducted by Ifremer’s department of ‘Environnement Profond’ (Deep-Sea Environment). Biocean was designed to facilitate ecosystem studies in the deep sea. It represents an important new resource for deep-sea ecologists and will have wide applications in biogeography and biodiversity studies at Ifremer, but also for the international community, as faunal data are linked to the Census of Marine Life information system OBIS (Ocean Biogeographic Information System). ...

OBIS was established by the Census of Marine Life program (www.coml.org). It is an evolving strategic alliance of people and organizations sharing a vision to make marine biogeographic data, from all over the world, freely available over the World Wide Web. It is not a project or program, and is not limited to data from CoML-related projects. Any organization, consortium, project or individual may contribute to OBIS. OBIS provides, on an ‘open access’ basis through the World Wide Web: (1) taxonomically and geographically resolved data on marine life and the ocean environment; (2) interoperability with similar databases; (3) software tools for data exploration and analysis. ...
