There are many Web Observatories already in existence even if they don’t specifically use this term) and our ambition is to enable sharing and re-use of the data, tools and experience locked up in these standalone systems. We believe there is an opportunity to enable a world-wide web of Observatories underpinned by common standards of discovery, sharing and interoperation.
Below you will see a few of the Observatories that we work with as part of the Web Science Trust – please contact us if you are interested in building your own web observatory, sharing an existing system or click here simply to find out more.
