Adoption of RDA DTR and PID in Deep Carbon Observatory Data Portal

Printer-friendly version

Presented at the RDA Fifth Plenary Meeting


The Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) community is building a cyber-enabled platform for linked science, made available to the community by a multi-institutional data portal. Persistent identifiers and domain specific data types have been identified as key technological issues the portal must address. This presentation focuses on the DCO portal’s planned adoption of RDA DTR and PID methodologies and technologies as a means to address the DCO community's need for persistently identifiable and understandable data type information.

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.

Description: The Research Data Alliance (RDA) - Data Type Registry (DTR) Working Group addresses a part of a core problem relevant to interoperability among data management systems: the ability to parse, understand, and potentially reuse data retrieved from others. The RDA - Persistent Identifier Information Types (PIT) Working Group addresses the essential types of information associated with persistent identifiers. We have undertaken an effort to adopt the DTR and PIT outputs in the Data Portal of the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) and have received positive results.
