Project Title

Information Preparation to enable Long Term use



Document Number



2.01 Data Archive Interoperability Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

The purpose of this recommendation is to provide a standard method structured as a complete process to formally define the steps and associated activities required to preserve digital information objects. The process thus defined along with the activities, is linked with the data lifecycle. This activity will work to standardize materials fed into the process by the EU Project - Long Term Digital Preservation (for Earth Science Data). It is likely that participants in EU Project will also participate in the CCSDS efforts on behalf of their Agencies.
