Workshop zur Entwicklung von Kriterien für die Bewertung der Archivwürdigkeit von Daten der Bio-/Geowissenschaften

Location: Deutsches GeoForschungszentrum Potsdam, Deutschland

Im Bereich der Bio-/Geowissenschaften ist die Formalisierung und Professionalisierung im Umgang mit Daten hinsichtlich der Langzeitsicherung und -archivierung nicht sehr ausgeprägt. Unter Langzeitsicherung von Daten wird im wissenschaftlichen Kontext meist als zehnjährige Aufbewahrung im Sinne der Regeln guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis verstanden. Oft wird diese Aufgabe schon mit der Publikation der Daten als erledigt angesehen. Was die Aspekte der Nachnutzung wissenschaftlicher Daten anbelangt, herrscht verbreitet die Einstellung, prinzipiell alle Daten aufbewahren zu wollen. In der Praxis bestimmen jedoch oft Kapazitätsgrenzen und/oder Übergabeszenarien bei der Auflösung von Forschungsgruppen oder dem Ausscheiden einzelner Mitarbeitenden die Praxis, wie Daten für eine evtl. Nachnutzung bereitgehalten werden. Neben technologischen Fragen und einer ausstehenden Klärung der Verantwortlichkeiten für die Archivierung stellen vor allem die große Vielfalt von Daten („Long Tail of Science“), sowie Unklarheit über geeignete Bewertungskriterien Hinderungsgründe für eine strukturierte Langzeitarchivierung wissenschaftlicher Daten dar.

Als Spezialisten für die Aufbewahrung, Organisation und den Betrieb geeigneter Repositorien für eine Langzeitverfügbarmachung archivwürdiger Artefakte, verfügen Archive über sowohl eine breite Erfahrung, als auch über geeignete Konzepte und Verfahren zur Beurteilung der Archivwürdigkeit von Archivalien. Insofern ist es naheliegend, Experten aus auf dem Gebiet des Forschungsdatenmanagements in den Bio-/Geowissenschaften mit Experten auf dem Feld der Archive zusammenzubringen, um Lösungsvorschläge für die Frage der Langzeitarchivierung von Forschungsdaten zu entwickeln.

Ziel des Workshops ist es, gemeinsam Kriterien für die Bewertung der Archivierungswürdigkeit von Daten der Bio-/Geowissenschaften gemeinsam in interdisziplinärer und interaktiver Arbeitsweise zu entwickeln. Der erarbeitete Kriterienkatalog soll im Ergebnis den Betreibern von Forschungsdatenrepositorien dazu dienen, objektiv Entscheidungen über die Auswahl von Daten für die Langzeitarchivierung zu treffen, die Basis für die Beurteilung geeigneter Möglichkeiten für die technische und organisatorische Umsetzung sind. Im weiteren Verlauf soll der zu erarbeitende Kriterienkatalog dann in den relevanten Fachbereichen vorgestellt und weiter verfeinert werden. Nach Durchlaufen weiterer Iterationen liegt dann ein Bewertungskatalog vor, der den relevanten Konsortien der NFDI zur Annahme vorgelegt werden kann. 

Der Workshop findet am 14. Dezember 2023 (ganztägig) am Deutschen GeoForschungszentrum in Potsdam statt. Da eine aktive Mitarbeit vor Ort erwartet wird, ist eine virtuelle Teilnahme nicht vorgesehen. Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an Experten und Interessierte aus den relevanten Forschungsbereichen, Vertretern relevanter staatlicher Stellen der Datenhaltung, sowie Experten aus dem Bereich des Archivwesens. Eine Mitgliedschaft in einem der Konsortien der NFDI ist nicht erforderlich.

I3G Online Workshop

Location: Online

Am 29.11.2023 (14-15 Uhr), findet der Online-Workshop in der NFDI4Earth - Interessensgruppe Geologie & Geophysik (I3G) statt. Dazu wird es folgende Kurzbeiträge geben:

Die Forschungsdateninfrastruktur Kadi4Geo

Bauer, F. 1; Steinhülb, J. 1; Selzer, M. 1 , (1KIT, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie)

Die Forschungsdateninfrastruktur Kadi4Geo ist Teil des Infrastrukturnetzes Kadi4X, welches am Institut für Angewandte Materialien am KIT entwickelt wird. Es umfasst neben der ursprünglichen Forschungsdateninfrastruktur Kadi4Mat weitere, den Anforderungen der einzelnen Fachdisziplinen angepasste Infrastrukturen wie beispielsweise Kadi4Steel der Bauingenieurwissenschaften oder das Projekt Kadi4Geo für die Geowissenschaften. Die Infrastruktur liefert neben einem ELN (Electronic Lab Notebook) die Möglichkeit über eine visuelle Programmierschnittstelle als auch durch Einbinden von Python code eine direkte Verarbeitung der Eingangsdaten, die damit in Workflows automatisiert verarbeitet werden können. Diese Möglichkeit prädestiniert die Kadi4X Plattform für die Anbindung an KI-Anwendungen und digitale Zwillinge.

Zugangsgestaltung von 3D-Visualisierungen des geologischen Untergrundes im Geothermischen Informationssystem GeotIS: ein Vergleich von OGC 3D Model Standards

Ira Gerloff1, Thorsten Agemar1, (1LIAG, Leibniz-Institut für Angewandte Geophysik)

Die Möglichkeit von interaktiven Visualisierungen geologischer 3D-Modelle im Internet durch die Bereitstellung von 3D-Webdiensten und -Applikationen ist immer noch stark von der Homogenität und Interoperabilität der Daten und des Datentransfers abhängig. Um eine interoperable Zusammenführung, Weitergabe und Nutzung von 3D-Untergrundmodellen auf Grundlage verschiedener Eingangsdaten realisieren zu können und diese im Geothermischen Informationssystem GeotIS dem Nutzer zur Verfügung zu stellen, vergleicht das Leibniz-Institut für Angewandte Geophysik derzeit ausgewählte OGC-Dienste als mögliche Lösungsansätze. Für die Entwicklung von Schnittstellen für den Datenaustausch und Benutzerschnittstellen mit grafischer Oberfläche sowie der möglichen Integration in eine Web-Applikation wurden die OGC Standards Indexed 3D Scene Layer (I3S), 3D-Tiles, 3D Portrayal Service (3D PS) und die API 3D GeoVolumes auf ihre Fähigkeit hin verglichen, Interoperabilität in Bezug auf Darstellung, Bereitstellung und Austausch von 3D-Daten zu ermöglichen und zu verarbeiten. an international research data infrastructure for the Global Heat Flow Database

Stephan Mäs2, Kirsten Elger1, Sven Fuchs1, Nikolas Ott2, Samuel Jennings1, Ben Norden1, Florian Neumann1, Simone Frenzel1 , (1Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ ; 2Technische Universität Dresden)

The Global Heat Flow Database serves as a valuable resource for researchers studying Earth's thermal regime. However, accessing and analyzing this vast collection of geothermal data is presently challenging and limits its widespread utilization. To address this, we present a new research data infrastructure and online application to the international heat flow community, facilitating seamless discovery, access and analysis of the data. Developed within the DFG-funded World Heat Flow Database Project, it complements the evaluation of existing data and development of a new, collaborative metadata schema for heat flow data. Our application offers an intuitive interface, allowing researchers to efficiently search, retrieve, and visualize heat flow measurements worldwide. It supports advanced search functionalities that enable users to filter data based on geographical locations, geological parameters, measurement techniques, etc. Integration of powerful data visualization tools allow users to generate maps, plots, and graphs for visual exploration and interpretation. Furthermore, the application incorporates domain relevant statistical analysis functionalities, empowering researchers to perform trend analyses and other statistical assessments directly within the platform. Our application also aims to foster collaboration within the international heat flow community. We incorporate features such as user profiles, discussion forums, and the ability to contribute new data or review existing records.

Im Anschluss zu jedem Beitrag gibt es Zeit für Fragen und Diskussion.
