NOAA Environmental Data Management Planning Deirdre Jones NOAA’s National Weather Service and Deputy Chair, Environmental Data Management Committee December 8, 2010
Outline • Overview • NOAA Policy • Procedural Directives • Discussion Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG
Overview Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG
Overview • NOAA Environmental Data Management guidance tiered • High level policy sets forth the framework for data management • Detailed implementation guidance on the end-to-end environmental data management lifecycle as set forth in the NAO – Procedural Directives Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG
Revision of NOAA-wide Policy (NAO) 212-15 Environmental data will be visible, accessible and independently understandable to users, except where limited by law, regulation, policy or by security requirements. Maintains NOAA’s policy of “full and open access” to environmental data Provides mechanism for EDMC to develop procedural directives for more detailed guidance Presents an end-to-end lifecycle framework for the management of environmental data Signed November 2010 Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG 5
Procedural Directives • Provide instructions and guidelines required to carry out a major activity area • Occur in two forms: • Instructions that direct action, ensure compliance, and provide detailed procedures, including • Standards; • Operating Procedures; and • Operating Agreements • Manuals for performing standard tasks • Linked to NAO and carries same weight of enforcement Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG
Procedural Directives • Procedure for Scientific Records Appraisal and Approval (What to Archive), completed in 2008 • step by step procedure that NOAA data managers use to identify, appraise, and decide what scientific records are preserved in a NOAA archive • NOAA Data Architecture Guidance For IT Capital Planners, completed in 2010 • practical guidance for IT capital planners and IT program managers for ensuring new data management requirements are adequately considered in the development of life-cycle cost projections • Development of Data Management Plans, in process FY11 • practical “how to” instructions for plan content and relevance • Data Sharing Policy for NOAA Grants, in process FY11 • Archive Architecture CONOPS , in process FY11 Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG
Other Candidate Areas for Procedural Directives • Metadata- Developing and maintaining metadata throughout the environmental data lifecycle that comply with standards • Submission of Data and Tools to Data.gov • Data Stewardship - Conducting scientific data stewardship to address data content, access, and user understanding • Data Sharing - Providing for data access and dissemination • Data Integration - Enabling integration and/or interoperability with other information and products • Data Archival - Providing for delivery to the archive and secure storage and addressing NARA records administration requirements • Data Management Planning -Developing and following data management plans that are coordinated with the appropriate NOAA archive for all observing and data management systems. Plans address obtaining user requirements and feedback Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG 8
Summary • Policy and implementing procedures provide structure to make EDM truly end to end throughout NOAA Line Offices and Programs from planning through preservation • Outreach and education key to ensuring data producers and users use the guidance • Leverage NOAA decision processes to verify policy adherence Prepared by Environmental Data Management Committee for DAARWG 9
