[MGI04-06] How to make the data sets in “dark long tail” open and preserve?
Keywords:open data, data preservation, small data set
One way to make such data sets open from the 'dark long tail' is to register metadata that describe the observations in as much detail as possible. An example of this in practice is IUGONET (Interuniversity Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork), which has a common database of metadata and forms a virtual data centre of distributed databases at several institutions. This data system includes databases from the 'dark long tail', as well as large well-known databases.
Another way is to use university repositories. However, in this case, we need a common method to find and retrieve the data set.
