Thanks a lot, Rorie and Bob, for the timely information on new WDS-DSA Core
Trustworthy Data Repositories Requirements and ISO 16363:2012.

A certified trustworthy repository should support and ensure the quality of
its overall data holdings with well-defined and managed processes and
procedures.  However, currently, most data centers are not certified.

I would also like to draw attention to the difference between data
repositories trustworthiness and dataset trustworthiness. They support each
other but not the same thing (please see the slides 17 and 18 of this
presentation: tinyurl.com/DSMMintro). I think that defining trustworthy
datasets needs a holistic and integrated, both vertically and horizontally,

I would like to mention the dataset maturity assessment reference
frameworks that have been developed or under-development at NOAA. These
assessment models can be used as a part of validating or certifying
individual datasets by providing consistent and integratable quality
information, combining with trustworthy repositories requirements and ISO
1363:2012 standards.

An overview of the current state of building a consistent framework for
curation and presentation of Earth Science data quality can be found at:

Hope it helps and please let me know if you have any question or need any
additional information.
