The objective of the Free Open Source IDAMS (OpenIDAMS) project is to produce, keep up-to-date and disseminate a free open source software package for data management, exploration and archiving, with report generation facilities, by transforming IDAMS into an evolving, inter-related set of end-user and developer services. The UNESCO Secretariat is the promoter, co-ordinator and supervisor of the project.

The complete description is on the UNESCO website.
