GeoDI (Geological & Geophysical Data Integration)[1] is a three-year project led by University College Cork[2] and funded by the Irish National Development Plan[3] under the Sea Change programme.[4] The project started on February 1, 2008.

The objective of the GeoDI project is to derive maximum value from the national data acquisition effort to date and to allow future data to be integrated easily. This will be achieved by integrating datasets and advancing the data management methods to derive a holistic and more sophisticated view of change in the status of the marine environment. The GeoDI project aims to address this challenge by examining the critical issues involved in the integration of Irish marine geoscientific datasets and assessing tools and services for enhanced analyses of geoscientific data.


The partnership brings together the pre-requisite national and international expertise in data modelling, data management and the marine/geosciences application areas, necessary for the successful delivery of the project objectives. The consortium that has been put together represents a team with an extensive track record in managing marine geological and geophysical datasets, e.g. University College Cork - Coastal and Marine Resources Centre (CMRC)[5] & Oregon State University (OSU)[6] - Department of Geosciences.[7] The team also includes non-marine domain experts, who focus on constraint programming and Artificial Intelligence (Cork Constraint Computation Centre - 4C[8]). This additional contribution provides the opportunity to achieve a high degree of innovation within the project.
