DataONE webinars are recorded and made available online later the same
day. You can review previous webinars at:
Reproducible research is enabled, in part, by provenance metadata that
describes the lineage and processing history of data and knowledge
artifacts. Provenance plays an important role in many scientific
applications and use cases. Yet this information is often not tracked as
thoroughly and systematically as science metadata. DataONE has been working
on tools to display provenance information and to support recording of
provenance metadata through programming languages such as R and Matlab and
through an intuitive, user friendly, web-based UI.
During this webinar we will describe the history to date, showcasing the
tools developed and providing a demonstration of the new web-based
provenance editor. We highlight the collaborative efforts in building a
community around provenance, and introduce future integration with
WholeTale and other community initiatives.
Chris Jones is a Software Engineer at the National Center for Ecological
Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), at the University of California, Santa
Barbara. He has worked on informatics projects for the last fifteen years,
focusing on generic solutions to common data management needs in the earth
and ecological sciences. Chris has built systems to document and archive
data for regional and international consortia, stream data in near real
time from arrays of oceanographic sensors deployed across the insular
Pacific islands, and has been involved in metadata standards development
and ontology development. Chris tries to handle computer systems in stride,
despite their frequent tantrums. He lives in Colorado.
Bryce Mecum is a scientific software engineer with expertise in data
analysis and programming and data management systems, including systems
like R, GitHub, repository software, Python, and UNIX. He has a background
in fisheries modeling and management, and builds software systems
supporting environmental synthesis.
Matthew Jones is the Director of Informatics Research at the National
Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, and co-PI on DataONE. His
research focuses on environmental informatics, and particularly software
for management, integration, analysis, and modeling of heterogeneous
environmental data. Products have included metadata standards like
Ecological Metadata Language, data systems like the KNB Data Repository and
DataONE, and scientific workflow systems such as Kepler for tracking the
structure and provenance of analysis.
