Transcript

  • 1. PLANETS, OPF & SCAPE A summary of the tools from these preservation projects, and where their development is headingwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 2. PLANETS• A big project to build digital preservation tools...www.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 3. OPF’s Challenge• The Open Planets Foundation was set up to sustain the PLANETS outputs into the future. – But the tools are • Numerous, often complex, & of mixed quality/maturity • Require complex technology stacks (JEE) – So, how do we make the code sustainable? • Selection, modularisation, simplification • Aim for a flexible suite of modular tools, rather than a monolithic systemwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 4. SCAPE• http://www.scape-project.eu/• Many PLANETS partners – Including OPF• Many new partners too• Driven by data – Web archiving, science data, large-scale• Cluster computing for scale – Based on the HADOOP platformwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 5. PLATOwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 6. The PLANETS Testbedwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 7. The PLANETS Testbed: Too Many Good Ideas In One Place• Designing experiments – Web GUI for complex workflows• Running experiments – All services hosted centrally, plus test corpora• Analysing the results – Per-experiment automated & manual analysis – Multi-experiment aggregation & data mining• Sharing all of the abovewww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 8. Re-imagining The PLANETS Testbed: A Modular Approach• Use separate tools in each role – Experiment Design – Execution – Analysis• Publish results from each – Loosely coupled instead of all-in-one • i.e. sharing is built into the designwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 9. Experiment Design: SCAPE Workflows In Taverna• As part of SCAPEwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 10. Experiment Design Support: SCAPE Service Registrywww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 11. Experiment Design Support: OPF Shared Test Corpora• Simple collections accessed over HTTP – No special browser software required• Publicly hosted by HATII – May also be mirrored by OPF members• Stabilise corpora from Planets – Adsorb corpora from SCAPE & elsewhere• Look for Open Source CMS/Annotation tools – Layer on top of HTTP collectionswww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 12. Experiment Design Support: Sharing & Publishing Via myExperimentwww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 13. Experiment Execution Support: SCAPE’s Lightweight Tool Wrapping• PIT: Preservation-action Invocation Tool – Uses XML ‘tool specification’ documents that describe preservation actions • Command-line templates, Java classes, PLANETS/SCAPE web services, etc – Built to be shared • Can be published via, e.g. myExperiment • Should lead to more reproducible results – Re-using PLANETS interoperability codewww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 14. Experiment Execution: Multi-platform Tool & Workflow Invocation• Shared tool specifications make multi-platform execution easier – From the command line – From within Taverna – From the SCAPE cluster platform – From a simplified web interface• Run local-first, remote/service as needed• Collect results in a standard form, using Testbed codewww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 15. Experiment Execution: Publishing Experimental Results Via REF• OPF Results Evaluation Framework: REF – Hard-coded experiments of common interest • Can run the experiment automatically – Publishes results as linked data • http://data.openplanetsfoundation.org/ref/extension/• Built by Dave Tarrant, based on P2 format registry – Will come up again in the Identification session – SCAPE aims to publish much more datawww.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 16. Analysing Results: Linked Data & Future Plans• REF allows data to be inspected – Concentrating on collecting data at present• Will expose SPARQL endpoint for data queries – Analysis, visualisation can be build upon that• Please add analysis Issues for your Datasets and preservation processes to the wiki! – e.g. what graphs and statistics would be useful?www.openplanetsfoundation.org
  • 17. Summary• PLATO – SCAPE will add Preservation Watch & more• The PLANETS Testbed – Re-imagined as a gateway to a complementary suite of preservation tools and data services – SCAPE leveraging work from Taverna, IMPACT• Development driven by user needs – SCAPE Scenarios, AQuA/Hackathon Issueswww.openplanetsfoundation.org
