Ticket Summary Component Milestone Type Created
#2 Identify and tag suitably within the UML, independently referenceable objects UML Information Model V3 Atom Serialisation task 21/05/09

This is about working out what objects could to be serialised into atom ... and which are likely to be created by individuals at different times, and which could be created and served from different governance domains. It could be done either by a specific stereotype, or by a specialisation of gml feature type, or simply by agreeing that all gml feature instances should be independently managed.

This is marked in the top level NDG3 plan as part of the UML deliverable.

First Cut of the Model

Within MOLES, a computation is a process step which involves only numerical computations to provide a result, without interacting with the feature of interest– in contrast with acquisition.

A first cut of the computation model following ISO 19115-2 and the  MO_Acquisition model is  here - ingnore the stereotype <<voidable>> at the moment. where : MO_Computation --Definition-- A process which involves only numerical computation.

--Description-- NOTE 1 It may begin with one or more source data objects (themselves observations), but it may begin ab initio (no inputs) ; description of these source data objects is provided by MO_Source. It is executed by a responsible_party and ends up with a result.

NOTE 2 Description of the computation result is provided by the MO_Source.

NOTE 3 The computation does not interact with the feature of interest (by definition).

MO_ComputationInstruction --Definition-- Information about the instructions ( e.g. software, mathematical expressions ) where their execution provides a numerical result.

MO_ComputationPlatform --Definition-- Computation Platform is the identfiable object on which a computation process step is executed.

--Description-- NOTE A Computation Platform consists of a machine and one or more compilers.

MO_Execution --Definition-- Execution of a software or a set of instructions ( e.g. mathematical expressions) in order to get a numerical result.

Discussion : No Use of MO_Execution The corresponding class of MO_Execution in the Acquisition model is MO_Operation. The question is if we really need the class MO_Execution. I believe MO_Execution is not needed for the following reasons.

1) In an Acquisition the MO_Operation represents the way the acquisition instruments and platforms were deployed e.g. I operated the thermometer taking measurements every 6 hours. In a Computation this action is defined by the software ( MO_ComputationInstruction) anyway. MO_Execution is simply the run of the software.

2)The definition of LE_ProcessStep is : Information about an event or transformation in the life of the dataset including details of the algorithm and software used for processing

This definition I think describes perfectly a computation step and not the execution of the software – pressing of the button ( MO_Execution is a specialisation of LE_ProcessStep).

3)The structure of the model, as it is, because of the aggregation LE_ProcessStep – LE_Processing indicates : MO_Execution is included in MO_Computation MO_ComputationInstruction has the role processingInformation with respect to MO_Execution

MO_ComputationInstruction has the role instruction with respect to MO_Computation

So MO_Computation includes the piece of information MO_ComputationInstruction twice.

4)MO_Process can be an aggregation of computation steps. So a version of this model even without the class MO_Execution can support ensables ( e.g. run of the software more than one times with different configuration).

Therefore a proposed simplified version is  this.

Next Steps Mapping with METAFOR ( almost done) Attributes (using Use Cases)

#17 walk through a MOLES browse use case Documentation Future V4 Holding task 21/05/09

How will MOLES add value over and above normal discovery metadata.

Need to stress comparative and interdisciplinary and interinstitute functionality.
