Data Preservation: Great data, but will it last

Data preservation consists of a series of managed activities necessary to ensure continued access to data for as long as necessary. Data preservation requires ongoing active management of data from as early in the lifecycle as possible. As the volumes, heterogeneity, and complexity of data grows, this requirement for active management becomes a very important component. Its Digital Preservation Programme director, Neil Beagrie, pointed out that preserving data is essential for the future of new science. 'To this end JISC is working with a number of partners and has set up the UK Digital Preservation Coalition,' he explained. 'We are discussing a number of practical activities, in the areas of web and library archiving. We're also planning a Digital Curation Data Preservation. Author: Carlo Meghini.

Abstract Digital information is a vital resource in our knowledge economy, valuable for research and education, science and the humanities, creative and cultural activities, and public Data preservation refers to maintaining access to data and files over time. For data to be preserved, at minimum, it must be stored in a secure location, stored across multiple locations, and saved in file formats that will likely have the greatest utility in the future: Data Preservation. Preserving research data is more complex than just saving it on a hard drive or server. In fact, preserving digital data is more complex than storing paper as digital data degrades faster and you can't pick it up and read it. In general it is better to turn your data over to a qualified custodian - such as a data repository - which will take the steps necessary to preserve Data maps support preservation by helping you quickly connect key custodians with the data sources they use to help focus the preservation efforts. Additionally, a comprehensive data map gives you insight into the risk profile of certain data sources to help pinpoint what data should be targeted for preservation first. Data preservation. Data preservation means more than just making a backup copy of your data; it means protecting your data in a secure environment for long-term access and reuse. Ideally, your data should be regularly audited to guarantee its integrity, associated with appropriate metadata to ensure its discoverability, and monitored to control Data Support and Preservation. The Boolean operation can preserve some of the data included in the original Sub­Tools and will propagate that to the resulting SubTool(s). Some data types are not sup­ported and it is important to keep them in mind. Please check the list below. Supported data: PolyMesh 3D and associated topologies: subdivision surfaces, ZModeler, Dy­naMesh, etc. ZSphere Data Preservation Das Ende eines Experiments bedeutet nicht automatisch, dass die wissenschaftliche Arbeit abgeschlossen ist. Häufig arbeiten Wissenschaftler weiterhin mit den Messdaten. Zum Beispiel können sie damit aktuelle Ergebnisse anhand früherer Daten überprüfen. Möglicherweise liefern "alte" Daten lange nach dem Abschluss der Versuche neue Erkenntnisse - etwa, wenn sie mit neuen
