Why we should share data? Unlocking the value of hydrographic data and contributing to the SDGs

While the AusSeabed community is mostly successful in sharing data, there is still a way to go for true cross-organisation and public data sharing.

To learn about the benefits of data sharing, we recommend reading this recently released publication by members of the Southwest Pacific Hydrographic Commission (SWPHC) Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure Working Group. This short, must-read publication summarises the benefits of sharing data covering: public understanding and good, quality assurance, international obligations and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
