Daniel and Rick:
Please see attached graphic of the Data Curation Process. Is this getting closer to what you are saying? I can revise this as needed.
I have been creating an owl file for all of the Big Data related processes, artifacts, characteristics, and standardized relations. It makes creating the visualizations rather quick, but I need SME input.
Let me know if you have other graphics/visualizations that would be helpful. Just identify the particular process or artifact (e.g. Data Store) and its relation to other things.
The owl file I have so far has a lot of good content in it, but needs SME oversight. I know how to categorize and relate things, but I need experts in Big Data to guide the process.
The upper level taxonomy I extend from is the same that any scientific effort would use (e.g. genetics, medicine, bioinformatics, etc.) with categories for Physical Objects, Properties, Characteristics, Roles, and Processes or Events.
Some of the relations I have so far are attached.
As needed, I can quickly create any inference from the content of the Big Data Taxonomy Owl file.
Furthermore, we can even add actual instances to the owl file. For example…for the class: Research Lab we can add the names of actual research labs, or for Genomic Data Set or Measurement Result, etc. Then we can start to relate actual organizations with actual processes (e.g. production or consumption) and outputs (like the creation of some Data Set).
If anyone wants to describe some use case, I will be happy to create the graphic depiction of it in owl format. Just include the Organization Type, the Organizational Role(s) (e.g. Data Consumer), the Process involved, and the Product of that process. Maybe that product is an Input to another Process?
