Data Management

RPS has developed a sophisticated system for the management and preservation of a most valuable resource – your data.

Measured Data Locations

Strict attention to well-documented data handling and quality control procedures ensures data accuracy and reliability, and auditability at all levels of data processing, editing, analysis, presentation and archiving.

We have adopted netCDF (a self-describing file format) to streamline data management and transfer procedures. An impressive array of data analysis and presentation tools has been developed, using an optimal mix of open source and custom-built software.

RPS has a meticulous approach to data quality assurance and preservation.  This has resulted in the accumulation of an invaluable resource of reliable oceanographic and meteorological data.
