Session ID#: 2448 Provenance enablement in Earth and space science

Provenance is information about entities, procedures, people and
organizations involved in the production of research findings and the
supporting datasets and methods. For the field of geospatial science,
provenance is also known as the lineage of data. Capturing and presenting
provenance have been of great importance to ensure reproducibility for many
aspects of Earth and space science practice. Within the Open Geospatial
Consortium (OGC), geospatial provenance has been widely discussed, such as
those represented in the ISO 19115 and ISO 19115-2 lineage models. A recent
effort in this field is the PROV data model and its support ontology
(PROV-O) recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which provides
an initial basis for capturing, representing and linking provenance. Best
practices for implementing standards for provenance management are now
emerging. This session welcomes contributions that demonstrate how
provenance contributes to meeting scientific or engineering goals in Earth
and space science works.


Conveners: Xiaogang Ma, Wenwen Li, Deborah L McGuinness, Curt Tilmes
