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.
