Images of the seabed and of sediment samples form an important basis for marine geological interpretation and map production. Pictures of samples provide good documentation of the bottom conditions.

Explanation of assessment of FAIR principles:

There have made various tests to evaluate datasets in relation to the FAIR criteria. These are our interpretations, which then assess the criteria in relation to standards and protocols used for spatial data in Norway and Europe. For more information on which calculations we use for each indicator, look at the details of FAIR assessments for each specific dataset.

FAIR-status: 55%
