It is with great pleasure that we launch the new IODE web site on

After almost two decades we felt it was time for a new home for information on IODE.

The new site is intended to be of interest to a wider audience than the IODE community and this is reflected in the menu structure and simplified pages.

We are now also providing quick access to the core services of IODE i.e. data and information (OBIS, ODISCat, ODIS. WOD, AquaDocs, OBPS, OceanExpert).

We hope to provide the site in multiple language very soon (automated translation).

If you have any questions, comments or criticism on the new site then please let us know! You can contact us on
