The Environmental Data Management Committee (EDMC) coordinates the development of NOAA's environmental data management strategy, and policy, and provides guidance to promote consistent implementation across NOAA, on behalf of the NOSC and CIO Council. Environmental data management is an end-to-end process that includes acquisition, quality control, validation, reprocessing, storage, retrieval, dissemination, and long-term preservation activities. The goal of the EDMC is to enable NOAA to maximize the value of its environmental data assets through sound and coordinated data management practices.
