Dear DFIG members,
I've prepared a Use Case document covering a project we are currently working on which might be interesting for the White Paper currently being written. The project is about building up an "Open Reference Data Repository for Nanoscopy". For a more detailed view on the Use Case and its challenges please see the attached document.

I understand that submitters may not want their use cases public right away, but you could list the titles and submitters of use cases on the wiki.

Dear Data Fabric colleagues,
attached are all use cases that have been submitted to us as far as we know. Please correct us if we forgot something. The following cases are in the zip file "Use Cases1":
In addition we will add a number of desciptions that contain useful information to our discussion and which we found for example in the EUDAT store or which were sent to us - they may be slightly outdated and are included in the zip file "Use Cases2":
Please have a look, add your use cases and motivate your colleagues to add use cases.

A published structure is the result of several processing steps, beginning with data from one or more experimental facilities. Keeping track of which data entered into the result is an overhead cost for scientists which IT could help with.
It would go a long way forward to addressing this if repositories become able to save PROV-O metadata.

I've prepared a use case of our computing center which is not as specific as the other use cases. We serve many communities and thus have to have both a general/generic and a specific view.

I just have added a use case materialized in the EarthServer initiative: fusion on Petascale spatio-temporal datacubes utilizing an array database, rasdaman. As it is not (yet?) shown I attach it again.
Looking forward to discussion.
