Virtual Research Environment

Starting in 2020, the SeaDataNet infrastructure integrated a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) as part of the SeaDataCloud project. This initiative pioneered a pilot application that provided diverse services and research support utilising marine data and SeaDataNet tools such as WebODV and DIVA within the cloud environment. Access to the SeaDataCloud VRE required a Marine-ID for login authentication. Upon logging in, users gained entry to a personalized dashboard, granting access to a private workspace alongside various services.

Overview of the tools available on the SeaDataCloud experimental VRE with a Jupyter notebook, webODV, DIVAnd, BioQ, VIZ, ERDDAP and more

Unfortunately since the VRE is no longer actively supported it is not accessible online. Below is a list of some of the current initiatives (non-exhaustive list subject to updating):

- D4Science infrastructure in connection with the BlueCloud 2026 project: ; See also for data discovery and access services. In BC 2026, an update will be provided, including better data access from VRE platforms 

- FAIR-EASE project: (Galaxy Earth System is connected with the FAIR-EASE project :

- for webODV : (distributed system)

The data and main functionalities of the former SeaDataNet VRE are now available here:

- (SDN T/S collections)

- (upload own data to webODV)

- for EMODnet Chemistry (data): 

- M-VRE project with a Jupyter hub that includes DIVA software specific implementation for an Arctic dataset as part of the MOSAiC project, but it is a full version of DIVA and the ability to download your own data and write scripts, etc:

- For BioQC and ERDDAP: Prototypes exists but have not yet been finalised for production.
