POLDER: Polar Data Discovery Enhancement Research

Polder (Dutch verb): to work collaboratively to achieve a common goal

Federated metadata search for the polar regions will dramatically simplify data discovery for polar scientists. Instead of searching dozens of metadata catalogues separately, a user can come to a single search page.

This is a rapidly moving field and POLDER is working to find the best path forward for our community. POLDER is a collaboration between the Southern Ocean Observing System, Arctic Data Committee, and Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management.
