Lecturer – Metadata Standards, Data Modeling and Data Semantics

This course introduces graduate students to the reuse and preservation of envrionmental data.

Julien Brun true

This course is part of the Master of Environmental Data Science (MEDS) degree at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at UC Santa Barbara. MEDS is an 11-month professional degree program focused on using data science to advance solutions to environmental problems.

Course syllabus:

This course will cover the concept of metadata and how it can be leveraged for the integration of heterogeneous datasets into standardized data products. We will practice how to download data from data repositories both manually and programmatically relying on APIs. We will also discuss how to track the provenance of data, generate metadata integrating data semantics to increase data discovery, as well as archiving data products on data repositories to make them available to the broader community.
