    • Abstract:
      Midwest FreightView (MWFV) and its associated data repository is part of a large multifaceted effort to promote regional economic development throughout the Great Lakes system. The main objective for the system is to promote sustainable maritime transportation in the region by serving as an information clearinghouse for public policy decision making and for drawing the link between maritime freight movements and economic impacts throughout the region. In effort to maintain consistency over time within the MWFV system this project was devoted to the development of a set of formalized data library functions that include a complete set of user guides, technical manuals, and training modules for using the system, a detailed inventory of data repository contents, and complete documentation of repository contents according to national metadata standards. In addition, the project established a formally-defined directory structure for data storage, backup and security protocols, and the development of formal procedures for any updates, additions, or edits to the repository contents.
