Provenance information is captured through the construction of an experiment and importation of a dataset. It captures inputs, transformation tool (script), and outputs generated, and some user specific metadata. Provenance information is stored as a separate file alongside experiment outputs. The information remains with the BCCVL for a minimum of 3 months or a user can choose to export information. Users can export information to their desktop or cloud based storage devices (i.e. Figshare, Dropbox, Google Drive) as a file or bundled as a ZIP file with all experiment outputs. It is machine readable.
How is all provenance information of experiments and datasets captured within the BCCVL?
