Abstract:

To address the increasing requirements for archiving, preserving and managing digital video, still images, and audio resources, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration OE embarked on the Video Data Management System VDMS Pilot Project, in collaboration with the National Oceanographic Data Center NODC, National Coastal Data Development Center NCDDC, and the NOAA Central Library NCL. Since 2002, the OE Integrated Product Team IPT has been developing a standardized capability for archiving these disparate types of data and information. NCL staff led the development of the Video Data Management System VDMS Project Plan. The VDMS team developed metadata guidelines for digital video DV12 and digital still images DI12 to help scientists and data managers in the field create complete metadata about their data. These guidelines also facilitate creation of MARC21, FGDC, or Dublin Core standard metadata records. They proposed a work-flow for managing digital video by defining the process for moving video data from ship to library to archive, including steps for creating archival backup copies and web-accessible video clips and highlights.
