Abstract: The Physical Sciences Division of the British Antarctic Survey are developing a framework within which multiple, inhomogeneous datasets and associated metadata can be discovered, visualised and accessed. The framework is designed to provide a flexible interface to information pertaining to digital, non-digital and physical (e.g. ice cores) data holdings from multifarious sources. The primary elements of the framework; physical data organisation, database catalogue, and the associated web discovery utilities are described. We aim to provide a system into which bespoke visualisation and discovery mechanisms specific to a dataset, discipline or user group can be straightforwardly incorporated and administered. From the user perspective; the intent is to provide an intuitive interface allowing rapid identification, browsing and download of the data sought. An example case study highlights the flexibility of the system.
