User Story

As the content holder/manager of scientific data held in a local format, i wish to migrate this data into a domain standard format to reduce the risks of losing the ability to read/use and reuse the data contained within the file format.

User Requirements/Components

A tool/suite of tools to migrate from the local format to the domain standard. This would have the following functionality

  • The ability to identify the local format files (main file and associated log files)
  • The ability to identify the type of instrument (schema changes depending on instrument)
  • The ability to migrate the data
  • The ability to do quality assurance, both structural and semantic


Create experiments as child pages and they should appear automatically here

Migrate raw to NeXuS format (AD)
Data: STFC raw files & associated metadata/logs. Some may be sharable - TBD.
Workflow: Yes - incorporates all the elements.
Issues: NeXuS format can point to external files - need to consider raw to NeXuS in the event of these external links being used.
