Simple Analytics for the Deep Carbon Observatory Knowledge Graph

The Deep Carbon Observatory’s (DCO) website contains a number of browsers which visitors can use to find datasets, publications, DCO members, and organizations. However, users must wait while the browser makes many queries to the database to retrieve all the information. DCO members wanted faster access to key information about the database without waiting for the full browser to load. By giving effective summary statistics of the database, the user experience is greatly enhanced. The summary statistics allow DCO maintenance teams to quickly gain important information about the database without waiting for the browser to fully load. The summaries also allow the DCO’s Data Science team to identify and resolve problems with entries in the database, such as mislabeled publications, or missing user information by providing faster access to essential information about the data portal. In addition, the interactive, dynamic charts give DCO users a simple, easy method to quickly look up information about communities.

Description: Given this increasing data deluge, it is clear that each of the Directorates in the Deep Carbon Observatory face diverse data science and data management needs to fulfill both their decadal strategic objectives and their day-to-day tasks. This project will assess in detail the data science and data management needs for each DCO directorate and for the DCO as a whole, using a combination of informatics methods; use case development, requirements analysis, inventories and interviews.
