For several metadata fields, MEDIN insists that terms come from a controlled vocabulary to ensure consistency between records. Controlled vocabularies for the marine sector are available from:
• SeaDataNet client to NERC vocabulary server (v2)
• Marine parameters by SeaDataNet theme
• International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES)
• NERC Vocabulary Server Web Service (operated by BODC)
Controlled vocabularies commonly used by MEDIN are shown below organised by theme.
