It is quite common sense that any scientific evidence must be based on experiments, which simply means: Data. It is less evident that “Scientific Facts” are socially constructed (Latour and Woolgar, 1979), where “socially” applies both within research groups focused on particular issues and within large scientific communities. Therefore, the ability of Scientists to share data is essential to the progress of Scientific Research (Helly et Al., 2003) The SNAP project (Diviacco, 2005) is a web portal framework developed in this perspective. It can be used to support data dissemination and collaborative work in the field of Geophysics and in particular in seismic data analysis. It is made of three components: a Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) toolkit (COLLA) (Diviacco, 2005b), a Discovery Portal (Meta-SNAP) and a Central Data Portal (SNAP), which whilst preserving interoperability are evolving separately. It is currently used within initiatives as for example the SCAR Seismic Data Library System (SDLS), the European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) but also as the internal seismic data management facility of the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS).
