MN Description:
The Organization for Tropical Studies NeoTropical Data Center (OTS-NTDC) is a U.S. based non-profit consortium located at Duke University, and composed of over 60 academic and research institutions from the United States, Costa Rica, South Africa, Mexico, Peru and Australia. OTS-NDC is designed to safeguard and promote sharing and reuse of scientific data from neotropical ecosystems of Costa Rica. OTS-NDC manages ecological data generated at research stations located in La Selva, Las Cruces, and Palo Verde, Costa Rica by both OTS-NDC and independent researchers. OTS-NDC was originally funded by the U.S. NSF (FSML program), but is now operated autonomously by OTS-NDC.

See notes from initial meeting - https://epad.dataone.org/pad/p/OTS_and_DataONE

The OTS currently does not have a data repository. DataONE's current effort is to provide guidance for their proposal to NSF regarding additional/improved sensor equipment and the hardware/human resources to support the development of a data repository which will become a Member Node. The MN will be physically located in Costa Rica, likely the University of Costa Rica.

History

#1 Updated by Matthew Jones over 6 years ago

  • Base URL set to http://metacat.ots.ac.cr/metacatui/

Update: Matt Jones was contacted by Bryan Heidorn and had an email conversation with him and Oscar Madrigal Ovares oscar.madrigal@ots.cr about installing and configuring Metacat for use at OTS. Oscar has now installed a Metacat instance, but it current;y does not have any data loaded and it has not been configured as a DataONE node yet. Oscar planned to be in contact over IRC so we could continue deployment.

#2 Updated by Bruce Wilson over 6 years ago

  • Target version set to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 10
  • Status changed from New to Planning

#3 Updated by Laura Moyers over 5 years ago

  • MN Tier set to Tier 1
  • Software stack set to metacat
  • Target version changed from In Progress to Deploy by end of Y2Q4

Email from Carolina Murcia - they're expecting their server to be delivered soon and are ready to plan/develop their MN. They are going to use metacat, but we need to resolve their metadata standard(s) questions before other technical planning can occur.

Also, the name of the MN will likely be "OTS Tropical Science Data Portal".

#4 Updated by Laura Moyers about 5 years ago

Met with Carolina and Oscar M at OTS 27 June 2016. It was decided to go with EML metadata for consistency with the researchers contributing data. There may be researchers later who are more conversant with other metadata standards, but at least at first, in training the researchers and getting the OTS repository up and running, we'll go with EML.

Carolina, Oscar M and Oscar A are to develop some test content with EML metadata to put into their metacat and sync with DataONE in stage. This may take a couple weeks.

  • Target version changed from Deploy by end of Y2Q4 to Deploy by end of Y3Q1

#6 Updated by Laura Moyers over 4 years ago

  • Target version changed from Deploy by end of Y3Q1 to Deploy by end of Y3Q2

Moving out in schedule; Carolina and Oscar M need to do some more work on their end re: data before we can proceed with MN development.

#7 Updated by Laura Moyers over 4 years ago

  • Status changed from Planning to Testing
  • % Done changed from 10 to 50

Carolina has developed some sample data/metadata and we're ready to test in Stage.

OTS wishes to be known as the NeoTropical Data Center to attract a broader clientele. Public-facing documentation should be NTDC (or NeoTropical Data Center or NeoTrop Data Center), but internally we can continue to use OTS (as in nodeId) if needed.

Oscar M has added some more content to their Metacat instance.

Jing/Laura have been providing support recently for several questions Oscar had (see attached Word doc).

It is recommended that Oscar update his Metacat to the most current release (presently 2.8.3). When his Metacat instance is in a good state to move forward, we need to help Oscar register in Stage and do some testing. It wouldn't hurt beforehand, though, to validate his content, packaging, metadata, etc.

#10 Updated by Laura Moyers almost 4 years ago

  • Subject changed from OTS: Organization for Tropical Studies to NeoTropical Data Center - was OTS: Organization for Tropical Studies
  • Assignee changed from Laura Moyers to Jing Tao

Conversation with OscarM this week informs that they are running metacat 2.5.1 and they need to update to 2.8.4. We thought he had updated, but he suspects there is something up on his end.

We can test with urn:node:mnTestOTS with the content currently identified as authMN urn:node:mnTestOTS.

Transition to production planning:
Oscar really needs to set up a separate metacat instance for production. If he cannot, he will need to change the originMN and authMN from urn:node:mnTestOTS to urn:node:NTDC. Oscar will need to register urn:node:NTDC in production.

1/27/18: {from Oscar Ovares} Change the name to the node

We want to change the name to the node to OTS - Neotropical Data Center. Is it possible? Are there some considerations or limitations that we need to have in mind about the name?

[mark] Yes, you may change the member node name and identifier as necessary. The member node name may be "OTS - Neotropical Data Center", but the member node identifier would have to be something like "OTS_NDC". Is this acceptable? If so, you would enter the member node name into the "Node Name" field of the Metacat DataONE administration web page; similarly, you would enter the new member node identifier (urn:node:OTS_NDC) into the "Node Identifier" field of the Metacat DataONE administration page. The "Node Subject" field would also need to be changed to "CN=urn:node:OTS-NDC,DC=dataone,DC=org".

June 7, 2019 - Per Oscar:

I am writing to let you know that, we had a problem with our server. For this reason, OTS has decided to withdraw our member node from the DataONE network indefinitely, because in this moment we have another pressing issues which prevent us from attending to this situation immediately.
