Use Case: Record and Discover Derived Products #2
Use Case: Discover Derived Products
Goals and Summary
Via data processing, analysis, modeling, and visualization processes, researchers create derived products, including derived data sets, figures, tables, animations, and other artifacts. By establishing citation relationships showing provenance relationships among these derived and source products, we can preserve the dependency relationships for use in reproducing the science, thereby enabling discovery of data and products from their relationships. For example, with appropriate relationships (prov:wasGeneratedBy, prov:used), one can determine if one product was derived from another, and following the graph of such linkages, could discover other analyses and products that were derived from the same source data sets.
