The Arctic Research Foundation (ARF) is a private, non-profit organization creating a scientific infrastructure for the Canadian Arctic. Over the years, it has generated and collected a huge volume of big data. These valuable big data need to be managed. In response, we design an effective database to (a) integrate these big data (which may be of a wide variety of data types, formats, etc.) from different sources, (b) manage them, (c) catalogue the data, (d) extract useful information from the data, and (e) make the data accessible to researchers and public. By doing so, we centralize these disparate raw data collected by ARF vessels, mobile labs, and equipment from across the Arctic into a universally readable and easily searchable database. Moreover, we add an easily understandable, highly usable user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) elements so that the resulting searchable database can be easily accessible.
