The Smart Maritime Network’s Standardised Vessel Dataset (SVD) for Noon Reports project aims to provide a free and open list of defined data formats for common vessel operational data points typically found in the daily Noon Report, with the goal of offering maritime stakeholders a central reference point for data mapping that can be applied by shipping companies, technology providers or any related third parties to improve the digital capabilities of the industry.

Based on the data structure described in the ISO 19848 Ships and marine technology — Standard data for shipboard machinery and equipment documentation and incorporating other relevant standards, the list of suggested standard data point names and formats is designed to be completely non-proprietary, company and vendor agnostic, and is free to download and apply by all users.

This initial list focuses on data commonly found in vessel Noon Reports, but the dataset is intended to be continually expanded to add further standardised data points covering a wider range of use cases, offering a central open reference list of standard data formats free for use by all maritime and supply chain industry stakeholders.
