Designing metadata for long-term data preservation: DataONE case study


  • This is the space reserved for copyright notices.


DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth) aims to ensure the preservation of and access to multi-scale, multi-discipline, and multi-national earth observation data to enable advances in science and science education. DataONE is being designed and built to manage scientific data across a range of disciplines, including atmospheric, ecological, hydrological, oceanographic and other earth sciences, all of which are managing data and creating metadata at varying levels of maturity and complexity, utilizing dozens of metadata standards. This poster describes how PREMIS (Preservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies) was utilized to specify the requirements for preservation metadata for DataONE, one aspect of DataONE's technology architecture.
