Hi Andi,
I could give a short report on the adoption experience of the Deep Carbon Observatory Data Portal. We’re almost done.
In short: it went really well, and we were able to adopt most of the specific Recommendations through simple application of existing tools and standards (e.g. Vivo, PROV ontology). We had a pretty simple environment though.
Our next experiment will be much more complex. I hope to be able to say a bit about that too. We’re actually still working the use case, but it will involve multiple and complex types of versioning, data uncertainties, provenance, and sustainability strategies. Intrigued? 🙂
