Providing Rich and Structured Dataset Quality Information –Practical Application of a Data Stewardship Maturity Matrix

Data are an organizational asset. The quality of datasets and associated information is fundamental to the quality of the data services, for ensuring the trustworthiness of the data holdings, and for managing organizational risk. With rapidly increasing data volume and elevated requirements for timely access of high-quality and readily usable and interoperable environmental data and information, effectively managing and providing interoperable data and information is a significant challenge. This poster presents a use case of the end-to-end application of a stewardship maturity matrix, as a part of the NOAA OneStop project, to demonstrate the potential for systematically providing dataset quality information that is structured, evidence-based, content-rich, machine and human readable, and FAIR.
