"Seegrid will be due for a migration to confluence on the 1st of August. Any update on or after the 1st of August will NOT be migrated"


Executive Summary

The CO2CRC (http://www.co2crc.com.au) is a collaborative research centre in Australia focusing on carbon capture and storage. The CRC is a collaboration between multiple universities and research organisations. The CRC approached ASRDC to assist them in managing their data products

Project Overview

Representatives from the CRC have approached ASRDC staff for support in solving their data management problems. A similar engagement strategy is expected as with Western Australian Geothermal Centre of Excellence (WAGCOE). This group is eager and providing their IT infrastructure is suitable, could deploy part of SISS in support of managing their public data and making it available to ANDs

Problem Definition

Key Objectives

ASRDC will work with CO2CRC to provide
  • Metadata catalog
  • Repository for hosting data products
  • aid in constructing or identifying a metadata standard that satisfies their requirements
  • Process to register products
  • Education in use of tools and need for agreement on entry standards (vocabularies etc)

Project Scope

In Scope
  • Aid in setup of catalog
  • Aid in setup of repository
  • Aid in identifying metadata standards and highlighting required governance of catalog and repo
  • Training and workshops to educate users
Out of Scope
  • maintaining infrastructure
  • ensuring researchers use the catalog (we can not force them)
