The Software Sustainability Institute works with a range of projects - tackling everything from library searches to nuclear fusion.

EPCC's Andy Turner developed some JavaScript to visualise the usage of applications running on ARCHER, the UK national super-computing service. The visualisation of data in this way reminded me of how the Institute had visualised research data for a poster. I decided to spend a bit of time making Andy's scripts more general, so they could also be used to present Institute data including how much effort we've spent on consultancy, and who with, and how many researchers we've trained via Software Carpentry workshops.

At present, these scripts are prototypes and render sample data…

In August I completed an open call project with Trung Dong Huynh, Luc Moreau and Danius Michaelides of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. As part of their research into provenance, they have developed the Southampton Provenance Tool Suite, a suite of software, libraries and services to capture, store and visualise provenance compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) PROV standards. I developed a test framework in Python, which tests Provenance Tool Suite toolkits and services operating…

This information can be used to assess the quality, reliability and trustworthiness of the data.
