Le portail des aires marines protégées évolue

Published on 28 september 2020

Le portail des aires marines protégées (AMP) au niveau français donne accès aux données du Système d'Information métier AMP du SIMM, et les 4 portails s'y référant évoluent. 

What is a repository ?

Repositories are used to index, encode and organize data in a structured way. They ensure the semantic and technical interoperability of an information system, in particular by developing a common language for storing and sharing information between users.

The French common architecture framework for data repositories published by the General Secretariat for the modernization of the Public Action on 18 December 2013, defines data repositories as "the informatic tools needed to manage this data over time and make them available to other applications, information systems or users". This may be alpha-numeric data, such as taxon names, or geographic data, such as the location of French marine protected area for example.


The French public information service on the marine environment

The Marine Information System (SIMM) aims to facilitate the sharing and dissemination of data concerning the marine environment. To accomplish this, it relies on the existing organized databases and information systems in this field and creates new ones when needed. SIMM federates the stakeholders of public data on the marine environment (State services, public institutions, etc).
