euCanSHare deliverable D4.1 reporting on the opal software integration to euCanSHare
Executive Summary: In order to support the data harmonization process to be achieved within euCanSHare as well as proper documentation of the harmonized datasets generated, it is essential to implement a data and metadata documentation, processing and management system. The OBiBa software suite (Opal, Mica and Agate) and harmonization and cataloguing resources (harmonization guidelines and metadata standards) developed by Maelstrom Research are used as key elements of the EuCanSHare system. OBiBa software infrastructures are implemented in Spain, Finland, Germany and Canada to form the EuCanSHare harmonization platform. The platform will be pilot tested in 2019-2020 and, where required, the software will be customized to serve the evolving needs of EuCanSHare. The deliverable is a software and this report is the written description and presentation of the software and its implementation in different environments to support EuCanSHare activities.
