WDC for Geophysics, Beijing
The World Data System (WDS) is an Interdisciplinary Body of the International Council for Science (ICSU) created by its 29th General Assembly in Maputo, Mozambique in 2008. ICSU-WDS builds on the 50+ year legacy of the World Data Centres and Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical data analysis Services established by the International Council of Science (ICSU) to manage data generated by the International Geophysical Year (1957–1958). It became clear after the International Polar Year (2007–2008) that these bodies were not able to respond fully to modern data needs, and they were thus disbanded by the ICSU General assembly in 2008 and replaced by the ICSU World Data System in 2009.
WDC for Geophysics, Beijing is a Regular Member of ICSU-WDS since September 2016. It is one of the first nine discipline data centers in China joined WDC in 1988. Among the basic tasks of WDC for Geophysics, Beijing there is collection, handling and storage of science data and giving access to it for usage both in science research and study process. That includes remote access to own information resources for the scientists from the universities and institutions.
