XSEDE Training: Structured Data, Metadata and Provenance in the Context of Scientific Data Management Projects

August 23, 2012 (Thursday)
1 pm to 3 pm (CT)
J.J. Pickle Research Campus

This class will be webcast.

An essential component in a Data Management Plan, metadata, allows describing data from multiple perspectives and at different levels (i.e., individual data objects and collection levels), providing essential documentation for managing collections throughout their lifecycle. General and domain specific metadata standards will be reviewed, including those for the description, preservation, and provenance documentation of scientific data collections. Included in the workshop are methods and tools that aid in the identification and storage of metadata for collection access, interoperability, and analysis. We will cover tools such as Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS), XML and other structured file types, as well as Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The course will cover the tools’ basic use as well as addressing issues of schema design such as integrity and validation as well as import and export. To take better advantage of the workshop, have in mind a collection for which you need to develop metadata so you can apply the standards and issues that will be discussed.
