The Second Workshop on Populating the RDBES data model (WKRDB-POP2)
The aims of this workshop were to explain the data model developed for the commercial fisheries Regional Database and Estimation System (RDBES), assist in populating it with real data for the first test data call for the RDBES, and encourage participants to take part in ongoing testing of the RDBES data submission system.
This report documents the progress that participants have done to prepare their institutes for future use of the RDBES system. Some issues with data conversion have been identified and are documented in this report. None of the identified issues are thought to be serious impediments to moving forward with the RDBES development according to the roadmap decided by the Steer-ing Committee of the Regional Fisheries Database in 2019. This roadmap is repeated in this re-port. The RDBES Core Group (the group of people developing the RDBES data model) and ICES Data Centre will look at the results of this workshop and either respond to individual questions or adapt the data model and documentation as required.
The ICES Data Centre will keep in contact with participants that have expressed interest in taking part in ongoing testing and keep them up-to-date with any data model changes. This workshop (WKRDB-POP 2) and the WKRDB-EST 2 workshop to be held later in 2020 should be considered as two halves of the same process so the chairs will also encourage the participants to carry on working on their data transformation routines so that they can answer the test data-call and at-tend WKRDB-EST 2.
