Metadata harvesting

Harvesting of datasets from partner repositories have been updated

The harvesting procedures for information on available datasets in partner data repositories (NPI, NERSC and IMR) have been updated. This is still a beta release so duplicates or erroneous records may occur, but preliminary checks show that most harvested and ingested records works fine. Some records have been rejected during ingestion for various reasons.

Third Polar Data Forum

The Third Polar Data Forum is arranged in Helsinki November 18-22 2019. During this meeting there will be a number of training sessions as well. Further information is available at https://polar-data-forum.org/. Deadline for abstract submissions is August 16th September 6th.

Developments in harvesting discovery metadata

The discovery metadata harvest process is currently in rapid development. The harvest works fine,  but there are major modifications under development in the quality assurance procedures for the harvested information. In the current situation this may cause some of the havest streams to go unfiltered (or less quality controlled than planned) into the the NorDataNet site. This can imply that some datasets are not fully ingested due to insufficient discovery metadata. Insufficiencies can be on the originator side or at the handling side in NorDatanet.
