Data Lineage

An Essential Step in Data Processing
As William Pollard said, "Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organised, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit." In any project it is essential to distribute information to all parties involved. Reproducible project process information is essential to all participants at every working level. Information should be organised and presented in a standardised, easy-to-use way, possible using data lineage. View Larger Map Project information is expected to contain answers to essential questions such as: how, what, when, where, why and who? The answers... (read more)
