Data Portal [prototype] — Making Nordic Health Data Visible
Making Nordic Health Data Visible
This was a project funded by NordForsk. The project period was from autumn 2014 until autumn 2016 and the project was a collaboration between the data archives in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The goal was to make a search portal prototype for Nordic health data. For this purpose the portal is covering metadata from the data collections in the four data archives, and builds upon existing DDI documentation.
Search Portal Prototype
The purpose of the prototype was to demonstrate mechanisms to search and retrieve metadata for the catalogued datasets. It allows searching in metadata across repositories and studies, presenting the results in a standardised way.
The main user group for a portal like this is researchers. The prototype is based on input from the research community and experiences from other search portals. The work was carried out in dialog with other research infrastructures.
