About

Supporting the long-term preservation of Earth system science data and information is core of the Data Preservation and Stewardship Cluster. As such, a formalism is needed to codify the information. A future-looking approach is to leverage semantic web technologies to capture the knowledge representation and to enable flexible usage of this information.

Roadmap

We would like to start with practical use cases in preservation modeling, then work on a small and manageable model, and continually increment on a working design. Ideally, we should converge with support the information identified in the Provenance and Context Content Standard.

Some major steps planned:

1. Define what we would like from a "Preservation Ontology"

2. Define practical Use Cases

3. Extract high-level requirements

4. Adopt/reuse existing provenance models

5. Extend model with more focus on Earth science preservation

  • Include provenance and context

6. Infuse model into data systems

  • some aspects covered by ACCESS project(s)?

7. Updates and Refinements

Approach

Following the steps from the roadmap, the approach will also include the following:

Use Cases

Here are some initial grouping place holders:

Capturing preservation information

  • capturing data production provenance
  • capture data product context

Using preservation information

  • provenance for reproducibility
  • context for reuse in other domains
