TWeD Discussion: Coding Provenance in Software and Matching Tools to Data


TWeD Discussion: Coding Provenance in Software and Matching Tools to DataFebruary 10, 2014
There's always something happening on Wednesday evenings in the Tetherless World!

TWeD Talk, Wednesday, February 12, 2014, 7pm ET, Winslow Building on the RPI Campus

Please join us this week as the Tetherless World's Patrick West leads us in a discussion of his work with OPeNDAP Provenance Project and ESIP's ToolMatch Project.

ABSTRACT: OPeNDAP.org has been providing software solutions for the access, manipulation, transformation, and dissemination of science data for over a decade now. But it's been only recently that we have started thinking about providing information about exactly how and from what that final data product was generated. The OPeNDAP provenance project looks to research the coding of software systems to provide provenance information and implement that in OPeNDAP.

And given those original datasets and that generated data product, what client software can be used to visualize that data and in what ways. The ToolMatch project looks to formalize the expression of the datasets, and client tools that can visualize them in some way, developing an ontology and set of inference rules that can help the user realize the full potential of their data search and access.
