Science Requirements and Use Cases for the Data Model

Call for Scientific Use Cases

Dear Astronomer / Data Modeler,

In order to prioritise activities in the Data Model WG, we need to coherently collect and analyse requirements from the community.

The IVOA Data Model Working Group is hence calling for your help and invites you to submit your own list of Use Cases and/or Science Requirements. You have time up to the end of November 2003 to send to the dm@ivoa.net mailing list any science requirements and/or use cases you would like this WG to consider.

After November, a group of us, designated at the last InterOperability meeting in Strasbourg, will analyse them and derive the scientific and technical requirements which will drive the scheduling of activities in this working group.

By the beginning of 2004, a report of such analysis will be posted here.

We encourage you to send your own case. Basically think of it as an answer to the question:

  • What is that a standard description of the data will enable me to do easier/better/faster ?

We hope that future astronomical research will benefit of the data model standardisation process.

Regards,
