This CKAN Monthly Live will highlight The Canadian Watershed Information Network (CanWIN) who's going to talk about Making Science Accessible from the Prairies to the Arctic. CanWIN is a Canadian research spatial data infrastructure (RSDI) system hosted at the University of Manitoba and managed by the Centre for Earth Observation Science within the Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources. It is a web-based open access data and information network created in order to help address key water quality issues within the lake and its contributing watersheds.
CanWIN supports research and education, and inform management, policy and evidence based decision making within the Nelson River Watershed and into the Arctic via Hudson Bay. By creating an interoperable infrastructure, CanWIN facilitates the discoverability and accessibility of water and climate related data across the freshwater-marine spectrum.
💡 Join this webinar to learn about:
- Using CKAN to help research data support FAIR, CARE and OCAP principles
- Using CKAN to support our mandate of open, accessible and understandable research
- Research data workflows and how CanWIN supports national and global data interoperability
