This international site compiles all the metadata concerning national Antarctic programmes. It offers access to the whole scientific community concerning the whole body of data collected. Through this IPEV makes such metadata available for scientists and more openly available to the general public, the aim being both to meet the obligations of clause 3 of the Antarctic Treaty and favour interactions between programmes, at both national and international levels.
Two polar gateways exist for the IPEV metadata (see below for Arctic) :
