Data Stewardship Mindmap

Rob W.W. Hooft

A mind map of data stewardship topics. 

I started collecting these topics in October 2013. It is continuously being updated through accidental encounters as well as deliberate interviews with experts.

Many of the topics collected here are presented as a hierarchical set of questions for Data Management Planning in the Data Stewardship Wizard ( The information in the mind map is available in a formalized form (a set of JSON data files) from an open github repository in the Data Stewardship Wizard repository (look for the "knowledge model").

The original document is edited in the "MindNode" software, and at irregular intervals a view is uploaded to the MindNode cloud:
