The Data and Information group (DIG) provides ICES with advice on all aspects of data management including data policy, data strategy, data quality, technical issues and user-oriented guidance.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​DIG supports ICES Data Centre with feedback and advice on a number of topics, including existing products, current developments, potential new products, and the potential risk of data-duplication resulting from multiple submission roots, and the evaluation of the checklists.

DIG provides advice and guidance across​ multiple disciplines regarding data and information, such as expertise on spatial, oceanographic, ​VMS and biological data, as well as expertise on metadata, vocabularies, user guidance and quality control. When there is a need for it, the group initiates study groups, workshops, expert groups or training courses on specific topics.

Topics of interest to the group and a wider audience are posted on the ICES Linkedin group, in the ICES Data and Information Forum.

DIG is able to react quickly to ad-hoc requests from inside and outside the ICES community, like ICES Data Centre, ACOM, SCICOM, and Expert Groups. SCICOM and ACOM are both represented in the group. 

DIG meets twice a year: at a plenary in May in Copenhagen at ICES, and at ICES Annual Science Conference with DIG participants present. In case of ad-hoc requests a subgroup will meet via a web-conference.
