This project intends to investigate new ways to make data collected through Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) underwater observatory provided by the NEPTUNE and VENUS projects available to both scientists and the general public. The research will firstly focus on efficiency, experimenting with and comparing technologies as applied to the computationally intensive processing of the vast amounts of data collected by ONC. These technologies will include both parallelization strategies in the form of programming languages and database support in the form of tools to support data retrieval. Further, we will investigate the use of these database management strategies to facilitate the integration of data to provide answers interesting queries by ocean scientists and feed useful visualizations of this data.
