Guide lines for observational big data preservation and reuse from the PERICLES project.

Muller, Christian

Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics (PERICLES) – was an Integrated Project funded by the European Union under its Seventh Framework Programme (ICT Call 9) and addressed work programme objective ICT-2011.4.3 Digital Preservation. It ran from 2013 to April 2017. B.USOC  was in charge of managing a Community of Practice group regrouping several big data users and providers in the science domain including members of the BSE COST action. B.USOC performed also the detailed analysis of the SOLAR package of instruments which was active on the International Space Station from 2008 to 2018. As B.USOC was Facility Responsible Centre for this package, all aspects of the data flow were accessible to the PERICLES project. Also, due to the B.USOC relation to the Belgian Royal Institute for Space Aeronomy, precursor instruments flying on the Space Shuttle since 1983 were also available for study building thus a 35 years series. During this period, the paradigm of the experiment changed leading to semantic change.
