On June 9th, Patrick and I met up at RPI to discuss presentation strategies for provenance records in OPeNDAP. When provenance for an OPeNDAP data product is exposed, two things will regularly be present: references to specific OPeNDAP modules and their contributors. Therefore, providing a consumer access to this information could be helpful in facilitating provenance interpretation.
Using information from OPeNDAP’s SVN code repository, a listing of OPeNDAP modules and contributors was compiled along with a partial set of the following metadata:
– SVN trunk root
– SVN tag roots
– SVN username
– Development role
Using this information, a set of mockups will be developed in the following week for a web-based service for presenting provenance records.
