controlled vocabularies

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.
