The St Helena Government is collaborating with the Falkland Islands-based South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI) which has recently launched the South Atlantic Information Management System (SAIMS)

SAERI will act as a hub for archiving data collected within the South Atlantic UK Overseas Territories (SAOTs) and datasets collected on St Helena are stored on a secure server along with a metadata catalogue that records the name and contact details of the dataset owner, access restrictions and details of where, when and how the data was collected. The metadata form is available here.
